This book identifies a representative selection of compelling and intriguing artworks by a range of around one hundred of the most challenging and vibrant artists from, or working in, Ireland or whose work addresses Irish landscapes and environments. This field of representation has never been more vital and expansive than it is now in the first quarter of the twenty-first century in the face of climate change.
