More Description

Chris Drury walks -- and works -- in the wild landscapes of the world. Over the last 20 years, he has developed an impressive and highly personal repertoire of sculptural responses to the natural environment. In this first full-scale book on Drury, the work of this inventive English artist is presented in more than 100 large color photographs and his own revealing text.

Drury's experiences of places or journeys around the globe are expressed in two kinds of sculpture: mounds or shelters, sometimes filled with fire, are made in remote locations; other pieces, including meticulously worked baskets and exquisitely formed "bundles" -- of bone, wood, leaf, grass, feather, stone -- are created later from materials picked up along the way.

Kay Syrad's introduction analyzes Drury's sculpture in the context of late-20th-century environmental art, drawing parallels with aspects of Zen Buddhism and offering valuable insights into the artist's motivations.
