Author(s): Paul Dibble
Paul Dibble is a sculptor with a unique New Zealand vison. A vison shaped by the envionment in which he was born and rased the flat farmland of the Hauraki Plains. He has wored at a time when strides have been made towads establishing a national identity and many of his artworks examine issues about New Zealand: New Zealand as the last colonial outpost; as a South Seas antipodean paradise; as a land of sheepdogs, hunters and heroes; and the current political topics of conservation and biculturalism. At last this much sought after art book is back in print - with 32 new pages covering Dibble's latest works from 2002 to 2005. Having set up an operational studio and established networks to sell through, Dibble was able to spend 2002 to 2005 exploring his art. This new edition of Paul Dibble covers these very creative and productive years.
