Dietmar Voorworld is skillful artist who finds in nature and turns them into memorable pieces of land art by rocks, pebbles and leafs. When he was on Greece visit, he starts playing with the sand and pebbles on one of its beaches and felt an artistic inclination to create something special art.
Dietmar Voorworld first mosaic arose out of that experience and he sustained down this path, seeing it more as a playful hobby than a full-time career. He started to snapshot of his works, and after finding a resilient connection to the beauty of Scottish landscapes, he eventually decided to settle down in northern Scotland, creating spectacular land art works along its coasts. He says; my installations blend perfectly into the landscape and often appear to have been there forever. Harmony is really imperative to me, as well as handling the gifts of nature with due respect.
I can’t really sure the request as to why I make art in nature. I only know that I feel very decent with it. Despite all the experiments involved in working with nature, I continue venturing out with flawless enthusiasm. I’m simply following the call of my soul. So whether I like it or not, nature is the true and never-ending source of my inspiration, my grandest stage. Here I feel free and at home. To work with her, and in her, is a fabulous gift. In a word, my artistic work has something to do with peace. Peace with nature, with the weather and stones, the light and the enigmatic ocean. Peace with myself.
