Michael Heizer artworks and editions
Michael Heizer is an internationally renowned artist from California whose works are located in Land Art. Heizer studied at the San Francisco Art Institute before moving to New York in 1966.
In the late 1960s, the American began to realize his first Land Art projects. In the years that followed, he also increasingly devoted himself to creating sculptures in stone and wood and intensively explored the spatial conditions of nature. Heizer's most famous work is "Double Negative", which he realized in the Nevada desert. It is a nine by fifteen meter deep incision on an erosion edge of a plateau.
Always the artist tried to distance himself from ideology, political actionism, or the emerging ecology movement. "It's about art, not landscape,'' explained Heizer, who created abstract as well as monochrome paintings alongside his projects.
Michael Heizer is probably one of the most prominent representatives of Land Art today. His paintings and works can be seen in important collections and museums worldwide.
