Summary note
"Starting his career in commercial lighting design, Bruce Munro (b.1959) later returned to his artistic roots to create large immersive site-specific light installations born from his fertile imagination. Exploring Munros fascinating career to date, text and images combine to present an artist whose work is an exploration of place, topography and the environments in which the works are set. From the Australian desert to Californian vineyards, through to museums and manor houses in his native England, Munros spellbinding installations are immersive experiences that engage with the senses, their apparent simplicity belying the thematic and technological complexity behind their conception and realisation. Continually probing the possibilities of light and the considerable emotional pull the medium can create, Munros enthusiasm for his materials and their relationship with audiences and environments is intelligently and engagingly communicated here. Richly balanced with beautiful reproductions of Munros spectacular work, Light Field is essential reading for anyone interested in the power of light as an artform"--Publisher's description.
