Dave-Art is making a new start, with Wanderlust 3 our new adventure.
I am very busy making a new business plan for Dabe Art so therefor i just share here the post just written for the Dabe Art blog.
Many people say to me; my photos made them look differently to nature, they now see things closer. When you take your time and sit down, you will see something different no matter where you are.
Our eyes have their limitation and our brains fill in the rest, but who tells our brain what to see. The manipulated photo of what we want to see, according to who ……?
Is it the artist, fashion, media or our surroundings?
As a land artist you need to know your material just like any other artist does. A painter knows her paint, the brushes, the underground, the sculptor knows their wood, stone, iron. A land artist find their art-material in the landscape, where ever that landscape is you will find nature there.
It is often said that land artists have a dialoge with nature, using no words or signs. They alter the landscape with material found in the landscape. At times these alteration last just minutes at other times they last years.
In a way they create a connection between culture and nature, which is not always appreciated.
Some artists travel large distance to find them special ‘wild’ places to create their art, to spread their wings in unknown territories. Sometimes their inspiration comes from nature herself, many times it comes from who pay their travel expenses.
All of them make us look at nature in a different way.
We always intervene in nature, humans have been changing their environment since they walk on 2 legs. Out of them interventions come new ecological systems, creative driven ecosystems. (Novel Ecosystems)
How do we divine nature? Them landscape which has not been touched by humans? We have changed the chemistry of the air, the chemistry of water all over this planet.
One destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things (Henry Miller).
In Europe we altered the landscape for many many years and them altered landscapes are now natural wonders in their own rights.
We actually can give something back to nature, we can create with nature new ecosystems with a new way of looking at nature. Areas which were once planted by humans and than neglected become very unusual but beautiful places to reconnect with that nature.
Nature doesn’t care about nationalities, the wind seeds them plants no matter where and no matter where the mother plants come from.
Perhaps this WaterBuffalo in Pembrokeshire should not be or perhaps it always has been but just went for a long holiday.
The non natives often help to create that environment the natives need to survive, lets call it natural balance.
The above photo shows a landscape made by mining and sheep farming, is it therefor no good? Is what we see here no nature?
It is now a national park where they try to keep it in the way it is. Perhaps the national park should let nature decide what it wants to do with this new landscape.
Land art can certainly create new landscapes by working together with nature.
In the next blog i will show you more about this piece of land in Pembrokeshire.
It stands model for the new to create Forest Vision
I woke up with you in mind hearing your shouts, seeing your act art you said art
as i wait for the first bird song you wait for the first embarrassment
you have a name, you have a fame, you teach to earn
scream to act art you say
the thousand fine lines a question the embarrassment
Looking further into some facts
the aim for the shame
searching for what is lost
inside a scream of silence a scream of taal
en nog eens taal
Vergeefse woorden zoeken naar menselijke mening, menselijke redenering
ik herinner, terwijl de vogel mij niet ziet
een vermenging van woordeloze Beelden
Verbeelding van menselijk gezag
het gezegde van een FLITZZZZ
onderweg van het weg zijn van de
roaring trucks, zooming first cars
into the silence faling raindrops, rolling of leaFs
somebody else has been here, footprint from behind
shout for what is lost, what will be lost
only without the anger, leaving that embarrassment
a shout of silenced grieving, act silent walking, over a noisy track
should i act this sadden dance to get attention for loosing
perhaps it is the falling of failing
dat ik bewandel na de nacht
een druppel hier een druppel daar
een gloeiende plaat, in ieder hoek
taal zeg je een vergeten woord van het niet willen weten
stilletjes nat worden voor het zien van dat kunstzinnige moment
kunst waar vind je dat, aan een hangende tak zonder bladeren
het niet weten voelt veilig aan
nee, laat maar ik wil het voelen
achter de pijn van verliezen ligt de glorie van schoonheid
DIE komt zonder prijs
dansend over een bank, terwijl de bankrekening loopt leeg
genietend van een teer moment, regen valt niet leeg
treecreeper crawls away vertical movement
the rain truly falls
one hundred million
for a piece of skull
money of dead reminder of bulbs 1640
art for few collecting emptiness, no tax on art
10,000 times 10,000
art against reason a silent reminder of what i don’t want
is het een kunst om iets te maken waarvan iedereen zegt wat knap
is het een kunst om iets te maken wat jezelf niet echt snapt
een vergeten liedje van herman van veen met blijvende gedachte goed
walking back through the rain leaving art well behind
i sell what i create
dripping drops make no difference
i see your anger of lost words
leaf your act of desperation
its all a vague nothing on lendless paper
ik ga verder met mijn zin
zinloos dwalen tussen woorden van niets
lege druppels in jouw haar
warme bries in mijn gedachte
verder heeft het geen
