I can’t help but become incredibly introspective and humbled when I discover artists like Jim Denevan
Something about these ephemeral, measured earthworks transcend the boundary of scale, seem to bridge the boundary of the macro-microcosmic divide. *sigh*.
Denevan’s works are site-specific, in that he combs the beach shore for a suitable piece of driftwood, which he uses to draw shapes into the sand, based upon the surrounding environment (the shapes of clouds, leaves, terrain, etc.) and landmarks as reference points for the construction of works, some of which take up to 7 hours.
He must posess that same rare gene that Andy Goldsworthy does, which allows such concentration and dedication to something so transitory. 🙂
