By: Chris Drury, Kay Syrad

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.
