sculpture in nature

Copper Beech Circle

Installation and sculpture in nature by land artist Richard Shilling . Richard proved art is absolutely free.

Richard Shilling makes sculptures from natural materials he gathers near to where each sculpture is made. Every sculpture is photographed in natural light, using normal camera equipment and without any photoshop trickery. Each photo accurately depicts how each sculpture appeared, at its most vibrant moment, before the elements reclaim the materials back to nature. Through his ongoing relationship with nature he explores themes to do with time, ecology and the constant flux of the seasons and expresses these ideas through his unique land art images.You can see much more of his work and read all about what he gets up to on the photo sharing siteFlickr and on his blog with updates every week and many new sculptures.

Settle down beasts

A African rhino street art seen in Shanghai by street artist Faith47 .

I needed to bring the spirits of the African Rhinos into Asia. To help in the settling of their restless spirits.In 2010 there were 333 rhinos illegally killed for their horns in South Africa.In 2011 the total rose to 448.And as of September this year the total is recorded at 373 violent deaths.The current spike in demand of South African Rhino horn is driven primarily by medicinal demand from Asian countries mainly Vietnam and China, Malaysia, India and South Korea.  Their horns are used presumably to treat fever, cancer and diabetes and as a detoxification tonic after over-indulgence. The official announcement of the last Javan rhino killed in Vietnam was made on 25 October 2011,followed by the reported extinction of the West African Black Rhino, a sub-species of the Southern African Black Rhino, on 10 November 2011.Settle down beasts, settle down.
