ART EXPERIENCE IN NATURE

Art in nature unfolds according to the seasons and weather conditions. Intertwined with the natural environment, it is ephemeral and never finished.

My predilection for sculptures and site specific installations that dialogue with the landscape made me choose to guide mindful walks in places where art meets nature. Inspiring a reaction, it invites you to interact and experience the artwork. It makes you feel part of it.

Modern artists have the opportunity to spread the message that nature is worth paying attention to and to help awaken curiosity, appreciation and respect for nature. I am convinced that artistic creations that help us connect with nature are crucial at times like these, when nature seems to need our attention and care more than ever.

Nature takes us closer to the spirit of objectivity. It is a world without any prejudices, just life as it is. A labyrinth of time. The forest, the spectator smothered and blindfolded with leaves. It positions itself between us and our expectations of visual depth and annihilates the possibility of putting it into words, of storytelling. The forest is not the setting, it is the story, history, itself. Forests of time. An avalanche has dragged off tree trunks, branches and stones. The ash tree is a noble shade tree, bursting with medicinal and fortifying properties. A tree is a portal between heaven and earth and it is immeasurable. Everything on earth is constantly moving. Nothing on earth retains an unchanging, constant shape and our feelings regarding the external aspects of our environment will therefore inevitably also evolve and disappear. Garden Rules, a source in a garden, a fountain of living water.
