Sand Drawings :: Jim Denevan

Categories: Art + Graphics

JimDenevan_01
Jim Denevan is an artist based out of Santa Cruz, California who travels the globe creating large scale pieces of land art.  Drawn on sand, earth, and ice, these incredible works of art are both created and destroyed by the very materials that enable their existence.

Unlike Robert Smithson, known for the Spiral Jetty, Denevan's work feels less about sticking it to The Man (the over-commercialization of art) and more about the ephemeral nature of man himself.  Or, maybe he just does it because it looks cool.  Thoughts?

  1. This is VERY well done. Imagine the patience needed to create this art, while all the time keeping in mind the tidal changes, twice a day, the extra high/low tide every month,the Spring and Fall extreme tides…and of coarse when Mother Earth just feels like messing with you and sends a “freak” wave, probably when the art work is almost finished. Great job!!!

  2. Fantastic Art Jim, I work as a graphic designer myself and appreciate all forms of art, well most of them. I would imagine sand is tricky to work with to say the least

  3. beautiful is it no words

  4. Arte en la arena, a gran escala

    Jim Denevan crea arte fractal a gran escala sobre la arena de las playas, la nieve y otro tipo de terrenos.
