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.

Chris Drury studied sculpture at Camberwell School of Art, London. He began his career with traditional figurative sculpture (busts, animals, birds), but from the mid-1970s has made works in the landscape or from materials that he has gathered. He has had many solo exhibitions around the world, and has contributed extensively to group exhibitions and symposia. He lives in Lewes. Kay Syrad is an educationalist and poet with a special interest in environmental art. She has accompanied Chris Drury on working visits to New Mexico, Connecticut, Japan, Denmark, Italy, the Outer Hebrides and Ireland, and has an intimate knowledge of his work.
