This is the most thorough presentation to date of the work of artist Jef Gunn. Written to coincide with an ambitious exhibit at the William Traver Gallery in Tacoma, Washington, the book (and the exhibit) shows an array of media attending to issues of interconnectedness and the inspirations of nature, especially the Northwest deserts, rivers and mountains.
Seth Thompson, professor of color photography at Photo Center Northwest in Seattle, Writes of Gunn's work: "I enjoy Jef Gunn's paintings the way I enjoy Bonnard's late work: We encounter fragments of matter and form that coalesce over time into presence of something inexplicable and alive. His paintings appear to present the World Soul in its states of immanence and being. We experience the purposeful order and beauty of a world that too often appears merely contingent, particular, and subjective."
