Herman de Vries : chance and change by Mel Gooding( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and German and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Herman de Vries is one of the greatest living artists working with nature. 'My poetry is the world', he writes, and the aptness of this statement becomes more and more clear as you contemplate his extraordinary work. He offers no representation of landscape or of nature, of light, of air or of perspective. His aim is quite simply to present nature as itself. The intelligence that lies behind his work is subtle, ingenious, reflective and steeped in knowledge of both eastern and western philosophies. De Vries's early training as a botanist broadens his frame of reference still further." "De Vries's art springs from his conviction that a proper contemplation and experience of nature is essential to living in any meaningful sense, from a profound awareness of the present disjunction between people and their natural environment, and an intuitive certainty that the careful persuasion and prompts embodied in his work will nudge us in the right direction." "Here, the distinguished writer on art Mel Gooding contributes a critical overview of de Vries's work setting it in an art historical context and appraising it as an important reflection of the cultural consciousness of the late twentieth and early twenty-first Centuries."--BOOK JACKET

Herman de Vries : To be all ways to be by Herman de Vries( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between man, culture and nature is increasingly becoming a subject of (artistic) research within the visual arts a theme on which de vries (Alkmaar, NL, 1931) has been working for decades. For more than 60 years now he has been developing a highly versatile oeuvre in which art, science and philosophy are confronted with the worlds, and especially natures reality. The theme of his work is topical in an age in which ecological issues can count on an ever broadening attention from the general public. De vries recent work dominates his presentation in Venice, as it does in the book to be all ways to be. The books guideline is a dialogue between de vries and Jean-Hubert Martin about the works on show in Venice. Martin confronts de vries with key concepts such as synesthesis, mimesis, craftmanship, sound and music, smell, nature and ecology, et cetera, and interweaves the works and thoughts of de vries, with images, texts and other sources throughout his text.

Herman de Vries : toevalstekeningen = Random objectivations by Herman de Vries( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in Dutch and English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The oeuvre of Herman de Vries has recently received a great deal of attention. His inclusion as Dutch representative at the Venice Biennale constitutes a well-deserved crowning moment in an artistic practice that spans some fifty years. The Kröller-Müller Museum, in close collaboration with de Vries, is now devoting an exhibition to his so-called random drawings from the period 1970-1975. The random drawings were created in de vries' first years as a full-time artist and after he moved to the North Bavarian Eschenau, where he still lives today. The drawings derive from the organizing principles of chance and probability that are so characteristic for de Vries. Inspired by the agricultural research that he carried out previously at the Plant Pathology Department in Wageningen, de Vries began making random compositions, in which the elements' lines, stripes, fields, dots, circles' acquire their place in the composition through chance.
