Summary "Song of the Earth showcases the work of five important contemporary artists who work in the landscape and make use of the materials and processes of nature. Their methods favour observation, collecting and forms of manipulation that are more reflective than intrusive, setting them firmly apart from artists of the American Land Art movement working over the same period." "Herman de Vries, Chris Drury, Nikolaus Lang, Richard Long and Giuseppe Penone do not belong to a particular school, but they are united by their empathy for nature and their decision to work outside the urban contexts of much modernist art. Interviews with the artists, conducted by William Furlong, reveal both widely differing motivation in their approaches to their work and striking similarities in their underlying concerns, and sometimes, methods of working."--BOOK JACKET
