The Art of Ian Norbury : Sculptures in Wood Hardback
by Ian Norbury
This book is an opportunity for lovers of fine woodcarving to examine the work of one of the art form's living masters - Ian Norbury - detailing his innovative techniques and his original and imaginative subjects.
More than 100 photographs richly illustrate his work, which combines a mastery of woodcarving techniques and a rich imagination inspired by artists such as Barlach, Dali, Magritte, and especially the Mexican surrealist Remedios Varo.
Much of his work is based on European folklore and mythology combined with cynical tongue-in-cheek side-swipes at the pomposity of contemporary life.
