Art of Nature (Hardback)

Heinrich Van den Berg

-  

This is a book that reveals a syncretic relationship between Art and Nature that elicits spontaneous and emotional reaction in the reader's mind. The photographs illustrate art: animal behaviour becomes a visual element, natural science the page upon which art is drawn. Here Reality defers to Beauty and Emotion. Heinrich's succinct texts reach beyond the photographs. They complement, query and even insult the images. The words are not there to fondle the images, but rather to dare the viewer to look beyond the obvious...to discover the pure art that lies at the heart of all. The owner of this book will hold a key to something beyond extraordinary animal behavoiur or powerful, unique scenery. It will open the human heart to a natural universe where nothing matters but the sheer beauty of nature itself. In direct contrast to the conventional visual appraisals of nature, this book peels back the layers found in the natural environment by placing nature in the realm of pure art.
