Environmental Installations

For your consideration, thoughts from the studio.

“I am for an art that takes into account the direct effect of the elements as they exist from day to day apart from representation.”
— Robert Smithson

“My art presents nature. I isolate certain aspects of nature to gain emphasis, to make clear its power to affect us, to give the viewer an awareness that can be translated into a total unravelling of the cosmos.”
— Alan Sonfist

“Movement, change, light, growth, and decay are the life-blood of nature, the energies that I try to tap through my work.”
— Andy Goldsworthy

“Do you know that I don’t have any artworks that exist? They all go away when they’re finished. Only the preparatory drawings, and collages are left, giving my works an almost legendary character. I think it takes much greater courage to create things to be gone than to create things that will remain.”
— Christo

“I think size is the most unused quotient in the sculptor’s repertoire because it requires lots of commitment and time. To me it’s the best tool. With size you get space and atmosphere: atmosphere becomes volume. You stand in the shape, in the zone.”
— Michael Hiezer
