Active in the field of environmental art since the 1960s, Nils-Udo is a Bavarian artist born in 1937 who creates significant structures that play with landscape scale, planting or montaging materials to establish links between a specific landscape site, horticulture, and art. Seen in Japan, North America, India, and Europe, his structures and forms have developed an expressive language with its own unique syntax. By highlighting nature’s presence, Nils-Udo’s landscape montages make us all the more aware of our place in relation to nature. His approach is tactile and extemporaneous, playing visually with the various organic and inorganic elements available in a given site. Nature becomes a platform on which the artist layers a discourse of human intervention in relation to the scale and dimensionality of landscape as well as the life forms therein. A sense of the ephemerality of life is inscribed onto the landscape in these ever-changing artworks.
