What we are gifted with is that there are tremendous talent in the art world. Art is an expression that allows others that share the same vision into your world. To connect on a level where words are not needed but the art speaks for itself. Organic art and land artists are no different and artists tend to focus more on what is already around us, to use as a tool, to create pieces of work that are truly extraordinary and to be admired. Some of the most exhilarating organic art can be witnessed by the artists below.
Lorenzo Duran’s Organic Art
Duran’s work is inspired from a caterpillar having its meal upon a leaf; it allowed him to adopt the leaf as his canvas. The Spanish artist intricately and delicately cuts away at leaves with precision to create the finest details, what’s left is an intricate landscape crafted spectacularly.
Walter Mason’s Organic Art
Mason gives strong emphasis on the use of nature’s gifts to produce his art installations. Water, trees, grass and berries for the catalyst in the German artist’s displays. His creations using leaves can transform into the most distilled geometric patterns and collages. Mason also created one of the world’s largest marble runs and enrolled furniture movers the intricate task to install two marble runs after a successful Kickstarter campaign. One installation at Phaeno Science Centre in Wolfsburg, and the other at Modulor in Berlin.
Andy Goldsworthy’s Organic Art
Recognized all around the world for his work with organic material focused art, his mind-blowing art installations and sculptures are to be admired. Using elements found in nature, autumn leaves are amongst his favourite sculpting tool, his artwork is heightened with the use of contrasting colours and interesting shapes.
Sylvian Meyer’s Organic Art
The work produced by French artist Meyer favours the use of natural material such as leaves, rocks, stone and twigs found in their organic environment. She is famous for her unique approach towards organic art with creations in the natural landscape using patterns, swirls and geometric shapes. Her art can be seen in the forest and aims to draw the viewer in to the beauty of the existing landscape.
Owen Mortensen’s Organic Art
Not many artists have the ability to render organic material such as an ordinary leaf into an elegantly crafted art display. Owen Mortensen’s work in his Selectively Skeletonized Sycamores series strips away thin bands of each leaf, revealing the complex veining system within the leaf.
