Like fellow artists Andy Goldsworthy and Richard Long, Chris Drury creates art inspired by the wild landscapes of the world. His work falls into two categories: firstly, that made en route in remote and beautiful locations, frequently cairns or shelters; secondly, objects such as meticulously worked baskets, exquisitely formed 'bundles' of bone, wood, leaf, grass, feather and stone, created later from materials found along the way. This magnificently illustrated book is a remarkable record of a highly inventive artist. Kay Syrad's introduction analyses Chris Drury's sculpture against the background of late-20th-century environmental art, drawing parallels with Zen Buddhism and giving valuable insights into the movivations of the artist. Drury is passionate in his appreciation of the natural world as one in which people have their place and have made their mark.

Umschlag leicht berieben, sonst gutes Exemplar. - Chris Drury's work over the last sixteen years constitutes a sustained exploration of the con-ceptual distinctions commonly made between nature and culture. His work is generally shown and categorised as 'Land Art' or 'Art in Nature', a context which, ironically, tends to maintain the divisions that he opposes. Drury does not seek to romanticise nature, although many of his works draw attention to nature's beauty; nor is he working from a political or moral position which imbues nature with goodness, to be protected from human badness. He is concerned, rather, with the knowledge and insight given to our 'inner nature', or consciousness, by certain types of encounter with 'outer nature', the material world. He wishes neither to romanticise art, nor to give it status above any other activity, and in this he is influenced by the tenets of Zen Buddhism: 'An artist is a communicator, but to be an artist one must first be a human being: that is to say, whole, undivided, if that is possible. From such a position there is no division between man, art and nature. The world is perceived as it is. Personally I have nothing to communicate, consciously, or unconsciously; the work simply reflects the moving from moment to moment in the world as it is, and so it is nature itself that communicates.'
