artist Jim Denevan

The work of artist Jim Denevan was brought to my attention by a friend who found his site through the artist-a-day gadget on my Google homepage.

Based in Santa Cruz, Denevan creates large-scale, temporary sand drawings on the beaches of California and beyond. When seen from above, the compositions reveal themselves as geometric forms which he creates by making marks in the sand. The remarkable process is documented in a great video profile of the artist which can be found here.
Experiencing this artists work in person has definitely been added to my list!
