Land Artist Jim Denevan on the Ice


In Pursuit of the Impermanent




I've posted about Jim Denevan and his "Sand" Art in May (see here). Today I found out that in this spring he also "created a large scale artwork on the frozen surface of Lake Baikal, Siberia. The spiral of circles, along a fibonacci curve, grow from an origin of 18" to several miles in diameter."

"Artist Jim Denevan is in pursuit of the impermanent. From the vanishing curl of a wave to sand briefly stilled between tides, nature's fleeting moments are his stock-in-trade. The frozen surface of Siberia's Lake Baikal presented a shifting, snow-blanketed canvas for Denevan's specific brand of art: massive geometrical patterns carved into the earth, ever vulnerable to the elements."
