Artist's book.
Herman de Vries (born 1931 in Alkmaar, The Netherlands, lives and works in Eschenau, Germany) is a Dutch visual artist. Having started out as an Art Informel painter in the 1950s, his interests shifted in the ensuing years, and in the 1970s, he became focused on found objects from nature and their artistic-philosophical qualities and implications. He has made paintings, collages, texts, sculptures, installations, a.o., and has dealt with plants, earth, and other parts of nature from botanical, medical, historical, as well as psychedelic viewpoints.
