Land Art was a form of art that respond to that reflection. Nature has always been a kind of safe place for people who have turned their backs against industrialization and mass culture. To the social discontent that prevailed in the seventies, was expressed by land art artists. Artists were against capitalism. American artists compared the Vietnam War with capitalism and capitalism in the art. They wanted to escape the world of urban bustle, technologies, profit and pollution to start a dialogue with nature..
It is clear that there was a romantic and mystical aspect of this art form , engaged in nature was a kind of meditation for the artists.
Like a composer who reads the notes he hears, the game character is important in the work of artists like Opperheim, Walter de Maria and Richard Long, which is only happening on the surface of the landscape. These artists are more interested in conventional characters used as the true dimensions of allowing time and space . These are also the artists who haven't done any physically large interventions in the landscape , which I am interested in.
Simultaneously embody both traditions, however, a radically different approach.
Long used the landscape as an alternative for the city and visualizes it as a 'pure ' state of virgin nature.
In addition, he uses a camera, pencil and paper.
He takes an honest attitude towards the wilderness as he has just discovered and temporarily takes possession. The myth of the landscape remains maintained.
