This full colour 160-page monograph accompanies the first, one person museum exhibition in London by Jeremy Gardiner: Unfolding Landscape at Kings Place Gallery, 90 York Way, London N1 9AG
8 March – 26 April 2013

Five respected authors share their insights into Jeremy Gardiner’s practice through different lenses, describing how, through a direct and physical use of constructed form, the artist has brought studio practice into a powerful synchronicity with landscape evolution. Providing a comprehensive assessment of Jeremy Gardiner’s career to date, this monograph, the first of its kind, explains how this distinctive artist has taken the exploratory landscape vision of mid-century St Ives modernists like Ben Nicholson, Peter Lanyon and John Tunnard into a new post-millennial era.

Gardiner’s unique geological interpretation of landscape not only describes the current lie of the land but portrays it as a complex outcome of natural processes over vast periods of time. While indebted to British and American modernism, Gardiner’s conceptual rigour and technical repertoire is informed by science, geomorphology, new technologies and direct physical engagement with ancient landscapes.
