Mark Hearld | Raucous Invention the Joy of Making
Raucous Invention - The Joy of Making
By Mark Hearld with text by Alan Powers and Lydia Wilson. With photography by Hermione McCosh and Antony Crolla. Designed by Nicola Bailey.
This beautiful new book throws open the doors to the wonderfully vibrant and energetic world of the artist Mark Hearld across 196 fully illustrated pages. Hearld’s exuberance, the endless inspiration he finds in nature, and his unbridled passion for making are evident on every page. Featuring his distinctive collages, textile designs, linocut prints, wallpapers and sculptures (to name just a few), Raucous Invention is a celebration of – and insight into – Hearld’s recent work and extraordinary creativity. As Alan Powers explains in his introduction, ‘this art is imperfect in the best way, messy and not prone to explaining itself, but the sound of singing and laughter is in the air.’
