Chris Drury (born in Colombo, Sri Lanka 1948) is a British environmental artist. He is most recognised for site specific nature-based sculpture, often referred to as Land Art or Art in Nature.
He harnesses multi-disciplinary processes to forge connections between nature and humanity, inner and exterior, microcosm and macrocosm. Often collaborating with scientists and specialists from a broad spectrum of expertise across technology and material innovation.
His body of work includes ephemeral assemblies of natural materials as well as permanent landscape art, works on paper and interior installations. What drives all these works is the context, which gives rise to form, material and the process in which he engages.
Drury has exhibited internationally, with solo and group presentations in museums and institutions such as Oppland Art Centre, Norway, Nevada Museum of Art, Reno, Museum of New Zealand, Wellington and The Serpentine Gallery, London. He has been awarded a number of notable major public commissions globally, including The Wandering, Perth, Australia and Heart of Reeds, Lewis, East Sussex, UK. In 2018, he was awarded The Lee Krasner Award in recognition of a lifetime of artistic achievement.
