Since the 1970's Chris Booth has worked as an environmental and land artist in nature, using predominantly found and natural materials. He works in very close collaboration with local communities in New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, North America and Europe to create works of increasing audacity and majesty.
In recent years his pinnacle works, including 'Echo van de Veluwe', part of the outstanding collection of the Kröller-Müller Museum, 'Nga Uri O Hinetuparimaunga' in Hamilton, New Zealand, and 'Waka and Wave' in Whangarei, New Zealand, have demonstrated his ability to combine a unique artistic vision with engineering brilliance.
With a foreword by British art writer Edward Lucie-Smith, this book surveys Chris Booth's remarkable career, from the late 1960's to his current stature as one of the world's most significant contemporary sculptors.
