A recurrent theme that characterizes the work of Dennis Oppenheim (Electric City, Washington, 1938), one of the most unusual and adventurous of contemporary American artists, is the encounter between art and nature. His first work using land, in Oakland, was produced in 1967. From the beginning of the Seventies, his work began to take a wide variety of forms, from performance art to installations, from video to the production, at the end of the decade, of the machine pieces, three-dimensional structures animated by mechanical devices. In 1986, the work of the artist took another turn: his works, enormous imaginary objects, mutant and distorted, are all pervaded by a new violent and playful irony. This book presents Oppenheim's sculptural upside-down church Device to root out evil. Produced for Venice, this glass and aluminum sculpture, 12 metres high, 6 metres long, and 4 metres deep, balances only on the tip of the bell-tower.

Using minimal tools and a simple technique of bending, interweaving, and fastening together sticks, artist Patrick Dougherty creates works of art inseparable with nature and the landscape. With a dazzling variety of forms seamlessly intertwined with their context, his sculptures evoke fantastical images of nests, cocoons, cones, castles, and beehives. Over the last twenty-five years, Dougherty has built more than two hundred works throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia that range from stand-alone structures to a kind of modern primitive architecture--every piece mesmerizing in its ability to fly through trees, overtake buildings, and virtually defy gravity. Stickwork, Dougherty's first monograph, features thirty-eight of his organic, dynamic works that twist the line between architecture, landscape, and art. Constructed on-site using locally sourced materials and local volunteer labor, Dougherty's sculptures are tangles of twigs and branches that have been transformed into something unexpected and wild, elegant and artful, and often humorous. Sometimes freestanding, and other times wrapping around trees, buildings, railings, and rooms, they are constructed indoors and in nature. As organic matter, the stick sculptures eventually disintegrate and fade back into the landscape. Featuring a wealth of photographs and drawings documenting the construction process of each remarkable structure, Stickwork preserves the legend of the man who weaves the simplest of materials into a singular artistic triumph.

"Grande defines a future where small-scale societies exist in harmony with their individual bio-regions, and he finds art that articulates this vision. His writing is clear and blessedly free of postmodern jargon." - Public Art Review "Demonstrates that art criticism doesn't have to give readers a headache. His grasp of details—both artistic and political—makes this book convincing, and interesting." - Books In Canada "One doesn't have to agree with everything Grande writes in order to welcome this book's arrival." - Globe and Mail "Engaging, provocative and thoughtful...Grande cares passionately about art, the environment, and the relationship between them." —Compass

In a forest in the Lake District, a wall snakes its way through the trees. Sandstone arches progress across the floor of a Dumfriesshire quarry. A dead tree in the Australian outback is miraculously clothed in rust-red sand Stone: Andy Goldsworthy offers an unparalleled opportunity to appreciate the extraordinary breadth of the artists output and to understand more about this exceptionally talented sculptor whose work is accorded worldwide recognition.

It started with a mother's love... Fleeing from a forest fire, a mother bear urges her two cubs into the watery shelter of a vast body of water. Though it will be difficult, she knows if they can swim across to the opposite shore, they will be safe. With calls of encouragement and steadfast love, Mother Bear guides her cubs across the great lake, Lake Michigan. And the story of what happens once Mother Bear reaches the far shore becomes the legend behind the natural wonder known as Sleeping Bear Dune. In 1998 writer Kathy-jo Wargin and nature artist Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen combined their talents to bring The Legend of Sleeping Bear to life. Published to wide acclaim, the book was soon named the Official Children's Book of Michigan.
