It can be said that every gardener is an artist, carefully growing beautiful things. And, with so much inspiration at hand, many a gardener does turn to the fine arts in an attempt to capture nature in all its glory.
Artists at Work provides a rare and fascinating glimpse into the studios of New Zealand artists as they strive to replicate and discern the world around them.
Featuring 24 painters and sculptors, chosen by writer and art commentator Richard Wolfe and photographer Stephen Robinson, this book focuses on established and up-and-coming artists, including Stanley Palmer, Dick Frizzell, Heather Straka and Andrew McLeod. Collectively, they represent a rich diversity of styles.
