This limited edition of The Art of Jeremy Gardiner incorporates an original intaglio print Kimmeridge Folly, Dorset inspired by the Shell poster of the same name by Paul Nash. The print incorporates a photo-etched steel plate of contour patterns, a topographical etching, two aeroply collagraphs and a laser-cut woodblock of an ammonite.
Providing a comprehensive assessment of Jeremy Gardiner’s career to date, this monograph, the first of its kind, explains how this distinctive artist has taken the exploratory landscape vision of mid-century St Ives modernists like Ben Nicholson, Peter Lanyon and John Tunnard into a new post-millennial era.
Following a distinguished international teaching career, based in Britain and the United States, Gardiner’s landscape subjects have included geographically varied locations from the Jurassic Coast in his native Dorset and the rugged Atlantic seaboard of Cornwall, to the jagged volcanic topographies of the Brazilian oceanic islands and the Lake District. Including essays from leading art writers, this book provides an insight into the career of one of Britain’s most innovative contemporary landscape artists
