John Grade

Reclaimed

John Grade relies intimately on our changing environment for his artistic process. Made of materials like reclaimed wood and disintegrating paper, Grade’s works are buried for termites to devour, sunk into bodies of water to gather barnacles, or hung in trees for birds to eat away at. Capturing the natural patterns created by erosion, nesting, growth, and the passage of time, Grade’s sculptures explore the tension between control and disruption, risk and calculation. Not merely thematic, the landscape actively shapes his drawings, sculptures, and installations.

The first major monograph on this significant artist, this exquisite and eerie volume captures the architectural beauty of the natural world.
