Here are some examples of the work that influenced me and of my own work during my studies.
Andy Goldsworthy’s ephemeral works are poetic inserts into a quiet landscape. Surreal and fleeting, they continue to exist in photographs and books.
Robert Smithson’s almost brutal and monumental scale forces one to take note. There is no escaping the massive scale, although it still maintains an elegance and rhythm that is hypnotic.
The images below are from the Cosmic Series. They are explorations in the landscape with fire and ice; fleeting moments of absolute quietness.
Sometimes the contrasts are harsh, light and dark, life and death; sometimes the images are meditative, undefined in space and time.
