Artist Bob Verschueren 'painted' these Wind Paintings from the 1970s and 1980s on empty and desolate landscape with the help of wind.
He used crushed charcoal, iron oxide, chalk, terra verte, flour, yellow ochre, terre de Cassel, burnt and natural umber, which was then laid out in a linear motif on the land. Verschueren would wait for the wind to distribute the coloured pigments and materials over the land. The resulting work was a stunning collaboration between man and nature. The artwork usually only last a few hours, before the wind that created them likewise blows them away.
