Gallery: Walter Mason Uses Nature’s Gifts To Create Striking Land Art

 
German artist Walter Mason sees nature a bit differently than most people, and he has the vision to use materials made by nature in his art. Land Art is his collection of nature creations using leaves, berries, water, grass and trees to create striking works of art, which are then documented via photography. Whether he creates a collage from leaves, a spiraling trail of water beads, or makes a geometric pattern out of needles, Mason transforms nature into beautiful designs.

    Yeah, the Goldsworthy conflict… of course Andy doesn’t have a patent on making art out of leaves and sticks, but he has established himself and his beautiful work quite firmly. It is an intuitive drive to make things in a similar way, and Andy G has done a very wide range of work, so I always feel like he has it covered, unless I were to go in a very particular direction with it. These images fall well within Goldsworthy’s covered terrain. Slightly more attention to detail, but not sure it adds a new dimension to A.G.’s work in any way.

    Andy Goldsworthy is a British artist who has been doing same thing for at least) the last 15-20 years. He has published several books on his naturalistic art, and was subject of the documentary film Rivers and Tides.

    Mason’s work is beautiful, but feels like he’s very closely imitating Goldsworthy.
