The Shamanic Art of Derek Hyatt
Peter Woodcock

For over forty years Derek Hyatt has been painting and drawing the Yorkshire moors. Stone walls, clouds, hawks, owls, standing stones, spirals, circles - all these are part of his visual vocabulary. He sees the role of the artist as that of the shaman, a person who can evoke ancient memories, dreamtime and contact the 'world beyond appearances'.

Hyatt's art is enriched by his passion for such diverse figures as the eminent Victorian artist and critic, John Ruskin, the Dada artist, Kurt Schwitters and the philosopher, Marshall McLuhan. STONE FIRES - LIQUID CLOUDS celebrates Hyatt's art and insight. Included are over one hundred paintings and drawings, his many poems and inspired writings, extracts from his regular articles in Modern Painters magazine, as well as totally new material. This book is a fascinating account of the modern artist as shaman, someone who is not afraid to see into the future by studying the past.
