Reptiles & Amphibians in Contemporary Art
E. Ashley Rooney, Foreword by Kim Diment, Introduction by Carel P. Brest van Kempen
• Captures the spirit of reptiles in a range of media—paper, glass, fiber, gold,
and much more
• 20 contemporary artists from around the globe share works inspired by
cold-blooded animals
• Reptiles and amphibians surround us, making up more than 17,000 species
The reptiles and amphibians surrounding us are more than 17,000 species
of fascinating and beautiful wildlife that many of us usually ignore. In this
colorfully illustrated book, 20 artists have taken those cold-blooded animals
as inspiration and transformed them into pieces of art that change the way
we perceive our world. The unusual shapes, glittering colors, and perfectly
adapted bodies of chameleons, turtles, snakes, frogs, and even dinosaurs
offer us new ways to see and be inspired, in media ranging from fiber to
glass and from paper to gold.
Deeply committed to exhibiting works by established and emerging artists,
E. Ashley Rooney
, author of more than 50 books on contemporary art
and architecture, believes that beauty is essential in our lives.
