Andy Goldsworthy’s Land Art

In the land art movement, no name is bigger than Andy Goldsworthy. The British artist is recognized around the world for the ingenious sculptures and art installations that he creates using elements found in nature. Fallen leaves are among Goldsworthy’s favorite tools, and he often uses the contrast between brightly colored leaves to create dramatic geometric shapes.

Traditional Chinese Leaf Carving

Traditional Chinese artists carve incredibly intricate images into leaves from the Chinar tree, which is native to India, Pakistan, and China. The painstaking process involves removing the outer layers of the dried leaf with a knife (which can take months) while carefully keeping the veins intact.

German artist Walter Mason uses the gifts of nature – berries, water, grass and trees — to produce his temporary art installations, but it’s Mason’s use of leaves that we’re concerned with. Mason uses leaves to create gorgeous geometric patterns and collages that he captures in photographs and shares on his Flickr page.
