LAND ART & ROCK ART

Land art or earth art is an art style in which landscape and the work of art are inextricably linked. Land art is today a very diverse art form. The works are created in the very nature using natural materials found in situ (stone, gravel, soil, tree trunks, branches, leaves, snow, water, etc.). Sometimes artificial materials are also introduced. Painting the rocks with eco-friendly paints, as is the case in some of my works, is called the rock art. The land art and rock art works are situated in the open air, located far from civilisation, left to change and disintegrate under the influence of natural forces.

These art forms allow me to connect my art in the most direct manner with my love for nature and interest in geology and historical places with the remains of old cultures. In land art, I often include my understanding of what is spiritual, and try to evoke that mystical, ritual and sacred attitude to the forces of nature, inherent in ancient cults. I can communicate with the audience more directly through land art works than through paintings, because they are interactive – they call for entering or touching them, thus achieving not only visual, but also an important tactile contact with both the work itself and the surrounding nature, which would not be possible in the gallery.
