A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Winner of the 2009 Best Interior Design prize sponsored by the Arizona Book Publishing Association In the Grand Canyon and on the icy flanks of Mount Everest, deep in rainforests and deserts, underwater and at the mouths of live volcanoes - Tony Foster paints his expansive watercolors at the edges of the world. Presented here with personal accounts of his journeys, they are an exultant testament to the power of art and the richness and fragility of our planet. Explorer-artist Tony Foster has been trekking into and living in the world s wildernesses for the past twenty-five years in order to make his monumental paintings, often under extreme and demanding conditions. These monumental works, containing written narratives, symbolic souvenirs, clues, and observations, are a celebration of some of the planet s most extraordinary places and of time spent studying and experiencing them. His exhibitions have been shown in many major museums and galleries, including the Smithsonian Institution, Yale Center for British Art, California Academy of Sciences, the Royal Watercolour Society, and the Royal Geographical Society. This is the first comprehensive retrospective volume of his work. In addition to selections from Tony Foster s diaries, the book includes contributions by James K. Ballinger, Graham Beal, John Halkes, Duncan Robinson, Stephen Sparks, Mark Trahant, and Annie and Bill Vanderbilt. N° de réf. du libraire AAJ9780295988177

Winner of the 2009 “Best Interior Design” prize sponsored by the Arizona Book Publishing Association

In the Grand Canyon and on the icy flanks of Mount Everest, deep in rainforests and deserts, underwater and at the mouths of live volcanoes - Tony Foster paints his expansive watercolors at the edges of the world. Presented here with personal accounts of his journeys, they are an exultant testament to the power of art and the richness and fragility of our planet.

Explorer-artist Tony Foster has been trekking into and living in the world's wildernesses for the past twenty-five years in order to make his monumental paintings, often under extreme and demanding conditions. These monumental works, containing written narratives, symbolic souvenirs, clues, and observations, are a celebration of some of the planet's most extraordinary places and of time spent studying and experiencing them.

His exhibitions have been shown in many major museums and galleries, including the Smithsonian Institution, Yale Center for British Art, California Academy of Sciences, the Royal Watercolour Society, and the Royal Geographical Society. This is the first comprehensive retrospective volume of his work.

In addition to selections from Tony Foster's diaries, the book includes contributions by James K. Ballinger, Graham Beal, John Halkes, Duncan Robinson, Stephen Sparks, Mark Trahant, and Annie and Bill Vanderbilt.

Review:

"A comprehensive representation of his extraordinary oeuvre . . . rich with entries from the artist’s travel diaries which are almost as vivid as Mr Foster’s spoken accounts of his adventures."―Wall Street Journal

"A very substantial and beautifully produced book . . . his is a trail well worth following."―The Art Book

"His willingness to endure discomfort in the creation of bold and dramatic watercolours has made him a highly collectable artist."―The Times, London

"Painting at the Edge of the World is a must-read for anyone who loves art and travel."―Southwest Art

"Anyone who has seen Tony Foster's precise paintings knows how meticulous and beautiful his work is while addressing the sweep and natural beauty of sites such as the Grand Canyon. That's key in the intriguing Painting at the Edge of the World."―Rocky Mountain News

"A jaw-droppingly beautiful book of watercolors, celebrating the extremes of nature. From the drenched rainforest, arid deserts, ice-choked Mount Everest, and even the mouth of live volcanoes, explorer-artist Foster captured nature up close and personal for over 25 years."―Dame Magazine

"Painting at the Edge of the World is a gorgeous coffee table artbook of artist Tony Foster's breathtaking watercolor landscapes, and even volcanoes, which were often created with a keen appreciation for the topography of their inspirational scenery . . . . The paintings appear deceptively simple yet draw upon hidden depths of talent to come alive in almost iconic relief. Highly recommended, and a welcome addition to landscape artbook collections."―Midwest Book Review
