Product Overview

British conceptual and landscape artist Chris Drury has been lauded for his many installations and site-specific works that investigate themes related to the environment and emphasize cycles of destruction and regeneration in nature and the ways that humans affect these processes.? In Mushrooms|Clouds, a series of artworks commissioned by the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, Drury brought an international perspective to topics ranging from land and water appropriation to nuclear testing in the American West. In many of these works, Drury utilizes materials collected from such places as Pyramid Lake, Donner State Park, and the Nevada Test Site to engage viewers in the many connections between art and the environment.


This companion volume to the exhibition documents Drury?s installations and captures his ephemeral work for further viewing and extended study.? In addition, the book includes an introduction by art historian Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe and an essay by Colin Robertson, the Nevada Museum of Art Curator of Education, which expound upon the themes and significance of Drury?s art.
