2 - 4 weeks availability
'Images of Earth &?Spirit' features the work of over fifty artists: over 140 sumptuous illustrations accompanied by interviews and insights into their work. Artists featured include Robin Baring, Cecil Collins, Alan Davie, Morris Graves, Andy Goldsworthy, Andrzej Jackowski, Richard Long, John Meirion Morris, David Nash, Margaret Neve, Peter Randall-Page, Haku Shah, Jane Siegle, Evelyn Williams and Christopher Wood. All the artists have been featured in the pages of Resurgence magazine, an international forum for ecological and spiritual thinking. Besides challenging much of the conventional wisdom of our times (including the dream of unending material progress), Resurgence stresses the wisdom of beauty and, above all else, the holistic view -- the relevance of interconnectedness. The work of these artists speaks of a new sense of the universe, a new sense of spirituality, holism and interconnectedness, openness and non-determinism. It gives hope for the renewal of life in the future.
