This form of art involves a temporary final piece that changes with age. I didn't want to create a colorful piece but more of a metaphorical piece. The location I chose for my earth art is shown above. To make my piece I cleared away all the pine needles that were in the way at the bottom. I observed through this art piece because I had to make sure the location I chose was free from human interaction. I had to observe the way the shadows were shown in this location. That would take part in the way I made my earth art.
I took risks with this because of how difficult it was to get to the location I chose. This location involved me climbing down and trying not to slip down into the water. I have been to this creek before with friends but due to recent storm events the location was overgrown and washed away. I wanted that visual surrounding the piece. It was a bit of a struggle to get there due to the damage formed by the storm.
Im the kind of person that holds on to my art work. The concept of art that is temporary was new and risky to me. As an artist I learned a new skill and way of thinking. I had to take in perspective that this art WILL change and I couldn't prevent that. I chose to that and create something metaphorical.
The piece is shown below. I piled rocks all around in a circle. I chose to do this formation because with the hight of the earth art it is bound to change. I placed two intersecting pine needles in the middle. This represents the fragility this piece has.
I am a 10th grade student at VMCCA working on creating an art experience in the classroom. My favorite form of art is digital painting. Some of my favorite artists are foolishkia and grittysugar. They are more modern artist that do mostly digital work. They use my favorite form of media. I hope to show my art growth through this blog.
