12 Amazingly Creative Examples of Environmental Art

Share Button


A new 2014 calendar, curated by Aleta Florentin of Amber Lotus Publishing, brings some of the best examples of environmental art all together in one place. This inspiring genre of art beautifully incorporates its natural surroundings in a way that’s surprising and oftentimes meaningful. Whether these artists are rearranging natural materials found on a site, like branches and rocks, while leaving no detrimental effect, or are reimagining a landscape by introducing unexpected materials, their overarching goal is the same. They aim to create art that helps improve our relationship with and understanding of the natural world.

For instance, in Lives of Grass by Mathilde Roussel, a work that features two grass covered figurative sculptures, Roussel explores the cyclic metamorphosis that transforms organic matter – whether vegetable, animal or human. As she states, “Time weighs on the body, leaving its trace as an imprint and thus creating an invisible archive of emotions, a mute history of our existence.”

Now, courtesy of Amber Lotus Publishing, here is what you can expect to find inside the 2014 Environmental Art Calendar.
