From the biosystems of the human body to the ecosystems of the planet, from the smallest fungi and mycelium to the largest trees, landscapes and their bounty of natural materials, Chris Drury’s creative practice has celebrated a symbiotic relationship between the microcosmic and macrocosmic through an environmental lens for over five decades. Drury’s awe-inspiring works, brought together for the first time in this stunning publication, are wide-ranging, explorative and ambitious in scope. He has worked with established institutions and small communities worldwide to create architectural works, land drawings, suspended works and murals in earth pigments, as well as collaborating with scientists, doctors and technicians to create marvellous works on paper, photographs and videos.
With its focus on one of the most important environmental artists alive today, Chris Drury: Edge of Chaos is a landmark publication that captures the true art of nature and spans a life devoted to the nature of art. A collection, a manifesto and a plea for understanding our delicate ecosystems, the book’s content and message will stir the heart and the mind with the beauty, diversity and celebration of our planet and the life within it.
