WAANDERS, HANS (1951-2001). - Four (4) Kingfishers.

Title: Four (4) Kingfishers.
Description: Blue watercolour on 'Fabriano'-watercolour paper, 114 x 85 cms. Very rare original work by Hans Waanders appears at the market! Signed 'Hans Waanders' and dated '1993' to the lower right. Framed. *'Hans Waanders has utilised many of the forms and mediums that, according to the former Fluxus artist Ken Friedman, have become associated with correspondence art and mail art, such as postcards, artists' books, printed ephemera, rubber stamps, artists' postage stamps, and posters of various kinds. Of all of these forms and mediums it is the book that is Waanders' principle medium?. According to the Mexican conceptual artist Ulises Carrión, a key pioneer of the form, the book constitutes a medium in its own right and is ?an expressive unity? in which ?the massage is the sum of all material and formal elements?. The self-reflexive, hybrid forms of bookworks and artists' books have permitted Waanders more whimsical constructions than the historically bound traditions of painting and sculpture. There are formats such as notebooks, field guides, bird books, and atlases (along with dictionaries, almanacs, and stamp stockbooks and albums).'
