Dietmar Voorwold, a German artist based in Scotland, creates beautiful and temporary works of natural land art by arranging rocks, leaves and other natural materials into simple but beautiful geometric shapes and patterns.
Most of his art is created with materials found on-site, so almost anyone can try their hand at land art. Voorwold leaves his artworks behind, so all that’s eventually left of them are his photographs and memories. But Voorwold explains that that’s the point: “It is just for the moment. This is a very therapeutic aspect of my way of creating art.”
A strong believer in the therapeutic value of art, Voorwold also holds art therapy classes for people, teaching them and guiding him to create their own land art.
