Leitersdorf, Austria, 1939 - Bustarviejo, Spain, 2004

The tension has appeared again and I’m thinking of making a kind of sail, combining stone, cloth and tree.

Adolfo Schlosser is a Land Art artist, being his main source of inspiration Nature. Itself and that the mathematics and rhythms of the natural world served as Schlosser’s primary references when creating his body of work.

His growing interest in space and tension lead him to experiment with materials such as plastic, methacrylate, rope or rubber. In the following years he slowly evolved towards different forms and processes and began to experiment with organic materials, extracted directly from nature. Thus his practice evolved towards a simple, direct, fragile and forceful work, in which the dichotomy nature/culture is central.
