The products are first rate and the promptness in which I received the order was wonderful. Price is better than shopping at local stores if you are a VIP member.

Earthworks

Earthworks are usually large-scale sculptures installed in the natural landscape or composed of materials taken from a specific site. Inherent in this approach to making art is a break with the dependence of artists on conventional sites for viewing, selling or displaying art, such as museums and galleries. Earth artists often take their work away from the cities and create monumental works in remote places. The condition and lifespan of an earthwork are always dictated, to some degree, by nature. Many times only the artist has a chance to view the completed work before it is compromised by man or ravaged by nature. The element of impermanence is crucial to the concept of many pieces. Extensive documentation of Earthworks is common. Maps, videos, drawings, writings and photographs are often made by the artists and taken into the galleries for viewing. Sculptor Robert Smithson has taken materials, such as rocks and soil, from selected sites and presented them in galleries as secondary, or non-sites, connected to and dependent upon the original, non-gallery site. Relationships to historical architecture, such as Stonehenge, and monuments, such as burial mounds, are apparent in these works, as is an interest in ritual and the experience of man.

Latest Product Reviews

I have been using this product for years and find that it works perfectly on my gessoed wood pieces. The biggest complaint I have is that over the years Grumbacher has downsized the size of the bottle, now making it only available in these small, expensive quantities. I would like for them to offer them in a larger size.

As a cartoonist, I've found only the 100 nib to be one that acts like a brush in that it gives me the thick and thin line that I desire, and a very thin line as well. It handles well and is very flexible.
