Abstract:

"Nowhere is the vision, audacity, technical mastery, and sophistication of contemporary wood art better represented than in the collection of Robert Bohlen and Lillian Montalto Bohlen." "Employing many different types of wood from the common place to the exotic as well as different carving, turning, and finishing techniques, the artists represented have created works that amuse, astonish, and inspire. Their efforts broaden our understanding of what art can be and enrich our experience of the world around us, challenging us anew to think about materials, forms, and textures. Through essays and interviews that explore the evolution of wood art as well as current concerns and practices in the field, Nature Transformed: Wood Art from the Bohlen Collection offers a comprehensive look at a unique contemporary art form at a vital moment in its evolution. Its publication is a welcome event for those who already know and love wood art - and a revelation to those who have not yet fully explored its possibilities."--Jacket.
