Art & Design: 'Lines In The Sand' - Land Artist Jim Denevan, Story Via Eco-Salon.com


Today's post is via EcoSalon.com.
Read the article by Leigha Oaks here.
Featured are the special creations of Land Artist Jim Denevan.

Although nowhere near as intricate,
and completed by a single individual instead of a group,
Jim's art conveys a similar message regarding the
impermanence and fragility of nature
in the way of a Tibetan sand Mandala.
Jim puts his essence into his art,
and then lets it go;
cleared by the tides and the winds,
into the eternal coming-and-going of nature.
