Strijdom van der Merwe sums it up well on his website:
“as a land artist, he uses the materials provided by the chosen site
his sculptural forms take shape in relation to the landscape
iIt is a process of working with the natural world – using sand, water, wood and rocks
he shapes these elements into geometrical forms that participate with their environment, continually changing until final probable destruction
what remains is a photographic image…”
So, for your viewing pleasure, some photographs of land art that makes my heart skip a beat:
I discovered this great site meant for art teachers.
And I’m going to stop now because otherwise we might be here for the rest of the year.
