Inspiration Wild: An Artistic Celebration of Nature and Environment

WAMA’s first publication is the art book Inspiration Wild: an Artistic Celebration of Nature and Environment. The concept for this book was developed in parallel with the planning for WAMA’s 2014 launch to showcase a selection of art work and essays by some of Australia's artists with international reputations working in this field today.

More.......

The works were selected by a panel with this brief in mind, and to emphasise and showcase the diversity of art works in both style and mediums, yet all derived from the same inspirational source. It is not intended to be a collection of the best, and certainly not all of the artists of this stature in the nation, but as an indication of the potential which is in the wider art community. It brings together artists who are dedicated wildlife artists with those who would perhaps never consider themselves as such, but who derive their inspiration from the same source. Hence the analogy with the WAMA tree inside the cover. It is an indication of a potential way forward in collaboration and with artistic recognition of our source of inspiration.
This book, as it developed, became a stunning collection of inspired art and essays, the like of which has not been attempted before for such a purpose, and WAMA is justifiably proud of its first publication in the international field of art books. We are very honoured to have the foreword penned by Robert Purves AM, who is very supportive of this project. The book is now available for sale, and we are very grateful to all the artists for donating the rights to their art and images for WAMA to create this wonderful book, and use the profits for its fund raising.

Inspiration Wild: Historical Perspectives and Future Challenges

Inspiration Wild: Historical Perspectives and Future Challenges is a brief summary overview of the development of the wildlife art movement through time, especially with some relation to the art works of current times loaned so generously to WAMA for its launch in 2014. The narrative is expertly written by Dr Anita Pisch, BA (Hons) UNSW, MCDARTDES (COFA), and is concisely informative, with relevant illustrations. The foreword by Prof Sasha Grishin, AM FAHA gives food for thought as to future directions and developments within the movement.
