‘Radiations’ is the first publication showcasing the work of emerging artist Paul Fryer. The relationship between visual art and science is at the heart of Fryer’s work, drawing on chemistry and physics to create objects of beauty. Part alchemist, part ‘artist-magician’, Fryer unites danger – in the form of manmade lightning generators, or his waxwork Jesus in the electric chair – with shelter – birds’ nests, or his delicate ‘star in a jar’ – to form a variety of spectacular, aesthetic environments. These works enable us to experience first-hand the mysterious phenomena of nature.

This elegant and thought-provoking book contains over 30 full colour reproductions including prints, sculptures and installation shots, as well as an in-depth interview between Fryer, Hans Ulrich Obrist, co-director of London’s Serpentine Gallery, and Fryer’s scientist-collaborator, Colin Dancer. Alongside this is a personal and insightful introduction by Fryer’s long-term advisor Duncan Ward, and an essay by Amanda Harlech, both of which examine the connection between science, religion and art in Fryer’s beautiful freaks of nature.
