Welcome to my online Journal where i hope to share my thoughts, feeling, inspirations, processes, problem solving, and completed works as well as works in progress.
Nils Udo born 1937 is a German artist of the earth. He began in the 1960s as a painter on traditional surfaces, in Paris, but moved to his home country in Bavaria and began planted creations, putting them in Nature's hands to develop, and eventually disappear. His work has always inspired me. It has a deep and profound connection with nature, questioning beauty, questions human touch and questioning permanence. Some of his works are on a huge scale such as the 80 ton birds nest below left. Some are more delicate and would only last a few hours before returning to nature. He is such an inspiration when it comes to sculptural works but i fear any one else making work like this would just be accused of mimicking goldsworthy!
