“Many street art installations tend to be temporary, vulnerable to the whims of the public domain whose upkeep often involves whitewashing the walls that were the artists’ canvases. But one artist, London-based Evewright, is taking the ephemeral nature of public art even farther. He’s turned to the beach as his canvas, creating giant swirling designs on the wave-engulfed sands of the British coastline.”

I'm a self-taught artist who prefers to use found objects in ways that were never intended. I'm not interested in making 10 or 100 of the same object. This, of course, takes more time to make each piece. I also prefer a more minimalist look, where each part of a piece can be appreciated. I consider my clocks to be small sculptures with moving parts. And, my lamps to be small sculptures with light. My mirrors are reflective sculptures.
DESTRUCTIVE TESTING means to push something to it's limits to understand it's structural performance or material behavior under different stresses. I interpret this in my artwork as using materials in different ways or combinations than they were designed to be used. I also just like the slightly ominous sound of the term...

Gotta sand it to you for this one – I like the way the turquoise clothed beach ‘monks’ are walking the spirals like a labyrinth…great shot and colour…look for sand sculpture artists too for posting…
‘sand it to you’!? that’s a real groaner John.
Really quite amazing.
