This is a series of six chandeliers designed by artists Joe O’Connell and Blessing Hancock currently installed in San Antonio, Texas. Made from custom made structural steel, custom LEDs and recycled bicycle parts, the lights project colorful silhouettes of sprockets and other pieces onto the otherwise drab cement underpass. Drawing from the formal elegance of the freeway underpass and the cultural currents of the surrounding neighborhoods, the piece transforms a forgotten space into one that connects the community.
In the capable hands of Michael McGillis a row of logs becomes a unexpectedly beautiful sight. This piece was originally installed back in 2006 at the Franconia Sculpture Park in Shafer, Minnesota and consisted of a 40 meters long trench of cut trees painted purple in the middle as if to reveal a suprising new species of plant.

land art at Zeleni vir near Skrad, Gorski kotar, Croatia
This land art carries primarily a feminine energy of Zeleni vir area in Gorski kotar region in Croatia, unlike neighboring Vražji prolaz (Devil’s passage) with mostly masculine energy. See more photos of female Guardian of the Waterfall below.
Emil Nolde (1867 – 1956) was a German painter and printmaker. He was one of the strongest and most independent of the German Expressionists, and a member of the Dresden-based group known as Die Brücke. He is known for his vigorous brushwork and expressive choice of colors. Golden yellows and deep reds appear frequently in his work, giving a luminous quality to otherwise somber tones. His watercolors include vivid, brooding storm-scapes and brilliant florals. We present our selection of his works:
This is a growing gallery with the images of land art made under the auspices of Atelier Hayat. Land art is an art style in which landscape and the work of art are inextricably linked. It is also an art form that is created in nature, using natural materials such as soil, rock (bed rock, boulders, stones), organic media (logs, branches, leaves), and water. The works frequently exist in the open, located well away from civilization, left to change and erode under natural conditions. Besides the artistic value, land art is characterized by very contact with nature – touching the stone, wood and earth with bare hands.
Land art constructs to an observer may seem pointless at first, and one like another. Giving yourself time to immerse in these artworks, to carefully observe them and to get to know them, you discover a billion uniquenesses – every stone is different! Will you look superficially or try to see the details, and feel what is woven into such work!? There is something magical in a pile of stones. Random hikers are intrigued when they encounter land art in wild nature. Some are encouraged to make something by themselves (especially children). The few turn tearing them down (which also carries significance, not necessarily negative).
