Books By Author Chris Spring
South Africa, Hardback (October 2016)
South Africa has an established and highly politicized contemporary art scene that is often in dialogue with the deep and recent past. This book explores this relationship, showing contemporary and historic art objects from the earliest human artistic tendencies to 20th-century apartheid Resistance Art and the art of post-apartheid transformation.
African Art in Detail, Hardback (September 2009)
Offers an alternative view of African art. This book highlights some of the aspects of workmanship, materials and design found in exquisite objects of wood, stone, ivory, ceramic, metalwork, featherwork, leather, basketwork and textiles. It explores these extraordinary objects and designs in terms of common themes through close-up photographs.
