In his Land Art works, Alan Sonfist (born 1946) links nature and cultural history elements to a single whole, so as to make clear how the encroachments of man have affected nature. He equally strives to show that the primitiveness of nature is an irretrievably lost state which can be reproduced symbolically and in terms of perception only in art. Sonfist uses art objects and lectures for his international engagement in support of ecological sustainability and timeless respect for the fragility of nature. Alan Sonfist lives in New York.
