A group of friends and fellow artists from Western Cape Land Art visited Koos Burger’s great fynbos Labyrinth in Gelncairn, Cape Town. Then we made some work under the trees along the stream bed - ephemeral creations of twigs, flowers, leaf-litter and mud. It was a fitting year-end gathering for us WCLA-ers. As I look back on the year I feel it is more critical than ever to make art WITH rather than simply about Nature. Subtle, secret creations about finding shelter, about belonging to and fitting into a landscape, about cycles of growth and decay, about a fresh way to view the natural world… or perhaps a celebration of colour is quite enough? See Western Cape Land art on Facebook for more examples of how we like to interact, interview and intercede with Nature.
