Land art - direction in landscape art

Richard Schilling (Schilling, Richard) considers calling land art – direction in landscape art that emerged in the USA in the late 1960-ies and involves the creation of sculptures using only natural materials gathered near where the sculpture is made. So much depends on a successful choice of creative space for your "green" Hobbies and colorful photos Richard is ready to investigate the nature of England, Scotland and even the Himalayas!



Each sculpture is shot in natural lighting: with the usual equipment and without processing in Photoshop. Due to the constant interaction with the natural world, the artist explores themes of ecology, the continuous flow of the seasons and the infinity of time, expressing these ideas have unique artistic images of the earth.

You cannot just look at one of these sculptures and blindly copy it: first you need to learn to understand nature — its cycles and processes, know how natural materials change and grow.


The main idea of land art is to prove that the person is quite able to interact with nature without disturbing its harmony, and harmoniously coexisting with her. The artist's task to fill the eternal and at the same time, the changing landscape of objects that highlight its uniqueness.

Land art just allows you to dive deeper into these things. It is important to merge with nature, to open her eyes and heart.



"The ephemeral nature of land art is manifested in the fact that many of the sculptures will last only a few minutes before we crumble, wither or blow away in the wind. I think that this is an analogy for life. Life creates order and beauty of the basic building blocks and then they return back to dust.

Land art is, first of all, the creative process – and not admiring the end result. This activity may seem magical and soothing. Each new discovery will encourage you to do more. Don't take my word for it – go against the nature and discover it all for yourself!"
