Description - Remaking Landscape by John Hubbard

'Whatever else', John Hubbard says, 'this is not another artist's monograph.I've already had a good deal written about my work in reviews, prefaces to exhibition catalogues, or as journalism. So, from what seem to me the most interesting, I have selected excerpts that relate to work either mentioned or illustrated in the text which I have prepared from entries in the diary which I have kept since 1967.

If it provides a brief facsimile profile of my painting and drawing, it will stand as a retrospective exhibition in itself.'
