Writer and art critic John K. Grande has published extensively in Artforum, Vice Versa, Sculpture, Art Papers, and other major art media venues. He is also the author of Balance: Art and Nature and Intertwining: Landscape, Technology, Issues, Artists.
"Grande's Art Nature Dialogues provides readers with insights into both the contemporary art world and current concerns about the environment. These interviews, with some of the most important environmental artists on both sides of the Atlantic, engage the borderline between art and what is perhaps the most pressing global concern in the new millennium - the quality and sustainability of the environment. These dialogues highlight the political, aesthetic, social, and scientific depths of their thought and work." - Glenn Harper, editor, Sculpture"
