Jon Foreman is a land-artist from Pembrokeshire, Wales, and he found out about land art while he was in college. He immediately fell in love with it, as he felt that the natural world has more in it to be explored.
His home town has an extensive coastline, so most of his work is around the stones he finds near the sea. He uses everything, from big rocks to tiny colorful pebbles, and beachgoers are often surprised to see his amazing creations.
Foreman told Bored Panda that he creates using many natural materials, but the stone is the material that he can manipulate best. Be it the color, the angle, the shape, the placement, the size, etc, the way he manipulates and arranges the stones is simply genius.
He said that typically, he either starts with a rough idea of what he would like to do, or no idea at all, and then he collects what he can carry and starts by placing stone by stone. He noted that he loses himself in the process, and he disconnects himself from the stress of everyday life.
According to Foreman, land-art is more to him as an artist than drawing or painting, as there are endless possibilities, and there are endless environments to work in.
He participated in the Llano Earth Art Fest in 2018, and he said that the festival is responsible for so much development in the field, and he’s extremely grateful for it. Check out some of his work below, and tell us if you like it in the comment section.
