Richard Shilling's third book 'Transience' (Special Edition) is a retrospective of the best of his work produced to date in a large, glossy, coffee-table book format 12" x 12".
There is a normal edition available in size 8" x 10", at a cheaper price but with exactly the same content.
It showcases the full breadth of his explorations into nature where he makes sculptures solely from natural materials in wild and beautiful natural places. He uses ice, snow, stone, water, leaves, wood, pebbles, bracken, mud and anything else he can find.
His main focus is on small scale, delicate and colourful, ephemeral artworks but he also regularly creates larger scale works too. He has received much critical acclaim and his work is often described as more accessible and personal than some of what has come before him and he has gone on to inspire many people to make their own land art creations.
This book contains nearly 165 full colour photos on 158 pages including many previously unpublished photos.
