TROUBLED WATERS: Trailing the Albatross An Artist's Journey

BRUCE PEARSON    Book Number: 84533    Product format: Hardback

Living and working amongst Albatross 35 years ago on a remote island in the Southern Ocean, Bruce Pearson in 2010 returned to see what had happened to some of the birds he had known so well. An award-winning visual artist and field naturalist, we are drawn into the rhythm and restlessness of the natural world both in wild landscapes and places where people and human activity interact. One of his paintings might be completed directly in the field, while volumes of sketches and studies provide ideas and fresh starting points for painting and printmaking work in the studio. Since the early 1970s, Pearson's paintings and prints sold widely in many group and solo exhibitions and he has won awards and illustrated a number of books, lectured and appeared on TV programmes. We quite literally get a stunning bird's eye view of his world, the ocean environment, the conservation crisis, but most of all the watery depths of his artwork, the beautiful plumage of seabirds in close up detail, eyes and heads moving occasionally, in flight and banking, almost stalling in the sky, peddling their feet as if playing on the edge of their balance, eyes always level with the horizon and flying at amazing speed and manoeuvrability with the utmost precision. Here are the great oceans first-hand in stunning watercolours. 109 illustrations, 136 large pages measuring 10" x 12¼". Colour.
