Tone Fink (b.1944), draughtsman, collagist and artistic lateral thinker has reworked a richly illustrated monograph from the Catalonian artist, Antoni Tàpies. The "Tàpies Book" has 160 pages and is used by Tone Fink as a practice ground for a diversity of graphic and painterly exercises, for which he provides different stylistic labels and employs every conceivable technique. Accordingly, the artistic arsenal of his interventions and approaches not only incorporates traditional processes such as watercolour, drawing, collage, tempera and oil painting, but also cutting, folding and ornamental perforations. Tone Fink completed this reworking in a non-stop "furioso" within a very short space of time, in what he calls an "intentional narrative extension", which so to speak is a compact "all over homage" to Tàpies.
