JOHN K. GRANDE BIOGRAPHY

ECOLOGICAL ART REVIEW 2014 Update

"Earth Art, also known as "Ephemeral Art", is an exciting genre of art that has grown out of the contemporary world's growing environmental consciousness. Art is created using natural elements - earth, stone, trees, plants, even ice, to create an art form that dialogues with nature"/John K. Grande, Ephemeral Art Curator,2014
  • JULY 2014 ISSUE: Ephemeral art curator, John K. Grande/EARTH ART 2014/Royal Botanical Gardens/Canada

    "Cultural identity is as necessary to humanity as the sun is to nature, for it guides us to identify who we are, where we have come from and where we are going. The impulse to create reflects an implicit desire to improve the world around us. Art can no longer be purely object based. The limits imposed on us by nature are guiding us to establish a new global ethic that involves the mutual respect between living things. Art draws upon that flow of energies that is part of the process of life, the procreative core of our need to transform, enrich express" from "The Spiritual in Art linking Nature to it All" by John K. Grande/1997
