Tom Phillips, RA
During my artistic career it has become apparent that firstly, there is nothing new under the sun and secondly, that I have yet to have an idea that Tom Phillips, RA hasn't had approximately 20 years earlier. If you don't know him, I urge you to seek him out. His website is a treasure trove.
His long running project, 20 Sites n Years was has been very influential in my own work and if you're interested in ideas around space and place it's worth taking a closer look - because that's essentially what Tom Phillips does, he looks at small things very closely and with a reverence that is both moving and strangely disconcerting.
