James Brunt Spends Hours Arranging Natural Objects Into Stunning Mandalas

Ralph Emerson once said, Nature always wears the colors of the spirit. Nature is the best way to communicate with your spirit, because it takes away from noisy world. Yorkshire-based artist James Brunt employs sticks, stones, and other ephemeral materials to create elaborate ephemeral art. Featuring intricate mandalas, infinite spirals, and one-of-a-kind sculptures.

Nature is full of color, patterns and exquisite shapes. All you have to do is train yourself to see the art that is out there. This form of land art, popularized and often associated with fellow Brit Andy Goldsworthy, involves detailed patterns, textures, and shapes formed using multiples of one kind of material. Brunt photographs his finished work to document it before nature once again takes hold of his materials.

James Brunt studied Fine Art at the Byam Shaw School of Art in London. After working for galleries and a long stint in Arts Development he now lives and works with his family in Yorkshire. Brunt also runs the arts organisation Responsible Fishing UK.

James regularly photographs and uploads pictures of his works to Instagram, where he interacts with fans – often giving times and locations for his installations.
