Environmental Art: Alistair Heseltine

with one comment


Came across the work of Alistair Heseltine the other day at work. Based in British Columbia the sculptor works with natural elements to create his interesting, and at times magical, works of art.


Using nature as art is nothing new, but what I really like about his sculptures and designs are the distinct lines created from natural sources, like the tree above. He makes formations that teeter on the ledge between natural and man-made, making us think both about the art and the elements used to create it.

You can see more of Alistair’s work at his website.

  1. Speechless. That’s wonderful, thank you for the opportunity to admire this art that uplifts the spirit. I am a university professor and teaching a course for engineering undergraduate students who deals with the interactions between engineering and the environment. I always show students a piece of art before starting the class, as a source of inspiration for the theme, and I was doing a search on “art and biodiversity,” when I was fortunate to find his sculptures. thanks again!
