The Colossal Land Art of Jim Denevan Maret 2014

Artist, surfer, chef; Jim Denevan is a man of many talents. The 50-year-old is best known for his colossal temporary land art, using natural materials to create massive scale drawings on earth, sand and ice. His sculptures are not placed in the landscape, rather, the landscape are the means of their creation. Often aerial photography or video is needed to fully grasp the final work.

Jim is also the founder and organizer of a worldwide moveable feat called Outstanding in the Field, an ambitious attempt to reconnect diners to the land and the origins of their food, and to honor the local farmers and food artisans who cultivate it. Long tables (50+ seats) are set outside at farms, ranches, and gardens, a truly magical experience.

Below we focus on his incredible artwork, which although temporary, is forever immortalized in photographic form. Be sure to check out for more information and imagery of Jim’s monumental work.
