Art & Design A CLOSE-UP ON THE ARTISTS, ARTISANS AND ARCHITECTS ENLIVENING OUR WORLD PHOTO GIANFRANCO GORGONI. UGO RONDINONE: SEVEN MAGIC MOUNTAINS, LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, 2016. COURTESY OF ART PRODUCTION FUND AND NEVADA MUSEUM OF ART. CULTURAL CACHET Alfresco Appeal The multi-hued stacks of Ugo Rondinone‘s Seven Magic Mountains, near Las Vegas Combining picturesque settings with contemplative works of art, sculpture parks and bucolic galleries are emerging as a new force in the art world. BRIAN NOONE reports O ur cities are brighter than ever thanks to a global influx of sculpture, graffiti and other public art, but increasingly we are choosing to brighten our souls by leaving the urban sprawl behind to blend the restorative powers of art and nature. It’s a combination that has a long history. We have sculpted our gardens to look like paintings for centuries, and we’ve been adding aesthetic delights to our natural surroundings for as long as humans have been human. The growing trend is an accentuation of both these activities – immersive experiences of art beyond the white cube. Perhaps the best example of this art-meets-nature ethos is the everevolving Gibbs Farm (gibbsfarm.org. nz) on New Zealand’s North Island. Owner Alan Gibbs has given an open brief to global artists ranging from Anish Kapoor to Richard Serra to create whatever their vision compels them to make – often on a monumental scale and all financed by Gibbs himself. It is accessible only by appointment and offers a truly singular experience with both art and nature. CENTURION-MAGAZINE.COM 55
