New Perspectives in a Rich Tradition
Leier, Peters, Wallace
"Art is not about response to an in animate object, but rather a relationship between people: the artist and the viewer. A painting is seen not as an object, but as an extension of the artist - and the viewer is part of a dialog. When it comes to the medium of wood, the voice of nature is included, and the dialog becomes a conversation between nature, artist and viewer."
The works in this volume have been selected and commentary provided by authorities in the world of turned and sculpted wood. Their insights into the vessels, boxes and sculpted forms showcased in this book illuminate the best work in the field.
