Sculptured Area/Land Art

Land art is art within the landscape, a component of the landscape. Humans can create different landscapes by modifying the land either permanently or temporarily, to create a new piece of art, or to seek the artistic experience of creating.


In marés quarries, the stone cutter is the first one to alter the landscape. Líthica therefore perceives quarries as great natural works of art. The cutter lacks any artistic intention initially, but seen from our point of view and experience, his work is art in the full sense of the word.


The quarry is a sculptured area carved out of the landscape; an architectural and sculptural creation in the rock.


Indeed the entire Líthica project is a work of land-art, in a place where landscape and art are united in the Art of the Earth.
