"David Ireland is an extraordinary artist who has played a pivotal role in the art of the Bay Area for three decades. His approach to art making continues to push the definitions of art and to influence a generation of artists. This important monograph is long overdue and contributes to many discussions regarding contemporary art production."--Jeff Fleming, Senior Curator of the Des Moines Art Center "Like a great naturalist who sees life in the landscape when others see only trees, David Ireland has an uncanny ability to find art in forgotten histories and castoff materials. His work is subtle, beautiful, and as lean as Haiku. This insightful survey of the artist's work and life is much needed, and a revelation."--Richard Andrews, Director, Henry Art Gallery, University of Washington
