The Wind Paintings of Bob Verschueren

Following up today’s sublime nature theme, here are some exquisitely beautiful works from the late 1970s that blur boundaries between Land Art, painting, and photography. Utilizing terre verte, burnt umber, iron oxide and other powdered substances, Verschueren worked with the land, water, and wind to create these ephemeral images.

More work in this series can be seen on his website, which also contains sculpture and installation, all accompanied by his more recent (and fairly challenging, at times) sound art.
