Spiral Jetty 2.0! :D Nice work! I love how this piece merges from smaller rocks and pebbles into the larger stones. Beautiful colors.

I really like this sort of landscape/natural art. You did a good job selecting the stones and making the gradient in the spiral. Are you an Andy Goldsworthy fan? :)

I'm in awe of Andy Goldsworthy. I like to feel I come and this sort of art from a similar perspective. I look for the most simple sublime solution to the materials I'm working with and sometimes it works and quite often it doesn't but never quite as classy as a Goldsworthy but mine are given to the world for free :)

This piece is amazing, at first glance it appears that the artwork is the swirl only, but when we look closer we see that the pattern is itself made up of so many smaller components that all fit together perfectly and starting at the centre they transition from one type of stone to another with different colours, sizes and textures and the art is actually how one simple shape is made up of many complex shapes. 

What I'm about to say is strange but this is an artistic representation of chaos theory, upon close inspection it is a haphazard collection of random shapes but when seen from a broader perspective we see pattern(s) emerging within the chaos, order from disorder. From a philosophical point of view life seems random but perhaps there is a designer with a plan. 

I love this piece.

I like that. I like to feel there is a Zen element when you are creating art like this. I'm always looking for the most simple, sublime solution for the materials I'm working with. I have reached a point now where I have reduced my art to such a point I'm not actually creating anything artistic but I think when I finally can afford a new camera I will try and embrace something bigger in nature and feel inspired again!

You might not necessarily need a new camera, the cameras in most phones and tablet computers have pretty good resolution and lighting can make a big difference. But I don't know what projects you're working on so it's possible a new camera is necessary. 

I'm fascinated by finding the profound within the simple, that's not a backhanded compliment, I mean that this piece is pretty straightforward but it held my interest and made me think, so well done. :)

I totally agree. There is something very profound when all the elements in land art come together and work. The most simple things, the things that often are barely art are often the most exciting like rock balancing.

Thank you, always leave my work after I have finished it in the hope they will just be stumbled over. With this one I went swimming afterwards and watching from the sea I saw it discovered by two old ladies who started walking around it like it was a maze. It brought a little a humour to their day!
