American artist Leonardo Drew (born 1961) creates large-scale sculptural installations incorporating both manipulated and found materials such as paper, wood, tree branches and roots, rust and mud. These materials are often stacked on top of one another, arranged in gradations of length or shape, endowing the sculpture itself with contrasting qualities of rigorous organization and organic chaos or proliferation. Drew has been making variations on this repetoire of humble materials since the 1970s, having had his first solo exhibition at the age of 13. With nearly 100 color reproductions of these works, this volume provides an overview of Drew's four-decade career, from the dramatic sculptures and installations of the 1980s and the enormous wall tableaux of the 1990s to the more fragile paper casts of the past decade.
