Spencer Byles, Wild Forest Sculptor
Spencer Byles is an English artist who creates beautiful art installations in wild forests all over the world. For the past 15 years, he has been expressing his talent for Land art, creating his works using ephemeral materials found in nature and that blend in seamlessly with the forest. An added attraction of these organic sculptures is their secretive nature; you need to head into the woods and find them... stumbling unexpectedly upon a piece of Earth art in the woods is a rare pleasure indeed! These surprising, fantastic and ephemeral installations are constantly shaped by time and the passing of seasons and end up being reclaimed by the environment that gifted the natural materials that created them. A full-circle artistic process that lends a poetic, almost metaphysical dimension to the trail...
