Abstract

The works of some contemporary artists are notable for the extraordinary interest they show in landscape considered as a strong and powerful tool between chthonic forces and perceptual implications. Their works form an identifiable or hidden alliance with the environment, setting free the power of the genius loci, and transforming the enjoyment of the work-of-art into a spiritual and physical experience. Some of these artists – i.e. J. Turrell, H. Voth, C. Ross, J.L. Adams – however have paid a special attention not only to the geographical horizon that marks their works, but also to the celestial landscape that becomes such a powerful resonance chamber between micro- and macro-cosmos. These land-formed works have their roots in ancient wisdom traditions, but they can also teach us a new way to design and protect the landscape, the culture that embraces all cultures.
