Into the nature... of Creatures and Wilderness
Nature has been cherished by all of mankind and has been a beloved subject for artists and continues to be today. Artistic confrontation, celebration and manipulation of nature, has never been more prevalent. A young generation of designers, illustrators and artists are taking nature as a starting point and bestowing upon it great importance. Into the Nature takes you on a visual exploration through nature and how it is being perceived, portrayed and visualized in the contemporary visual arts of the twenty first century. From romanticism to art brut, flora and fauna are reinvented through ravishing imagery ranging from classical and analog approaches to cutting edge graphic design, illustration, photography, objects and 3D installations. Blending various mediums and materials, classic and new alike, it presents us with a (r)evolutionary vision of nature.

Nature Journey Feb 20, 2008
I bought Into the Nature as a resource book for senior painting students. It has a wide collection of images but very little writing. If you liked Wonderland and Romantic you will probably enjoy this book. It is excellent as it has a wide variety of approaches to a single theme / subject matter. A number of the images are very challenging so don't buy it if you are easily offended. My students loved it and were very inspired by the images. So yes I'd recommend it as part of a resource collection but don't purchase it as a be all and end all book. lm
