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 like to use 300 lb watercolor paper for my oil paintings. I use this product to mount my finished work/paper onto foam core board then its ready for a traditional wood frame. Easy!
- JillU in Romeo, MI
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.
- Marie in New Mexico
These are some of the best watercolors out there. The range of colors make choices almost endless, and the quality is fantastic. Creamy and wets easily, mixes and blends well, vibrant and nonfading. Love Daniel Smith!
