Jon Foreman is a land artist who creates ephemeral stone art on the shores of the UK. He lives in Pembrokeshire, Wales which has an extensive coastline. A huge part of Foreman’s work consists of the stones he finds near the sea. He uses anything from tiny pebbles to big rocks. He calls it ‘Sculpts of the World’ and it usually surprises beachgoers.
“I create using many natural materials but the stone has proven to be the material which I can manipulate best. Be it color, angle, shape, size, placement, spacing,” Foreman told.”Typically, I either start with a rough idea of what I’d like to do or have no idea whatsoever! Then I collect what I can carry and start by placing stone by stone, steadily losing myself in the process and disconnecting from the stress of everyday life.”
Foreman finds it very therapeutic and he explained “There are endless possibilities. Not only that but there are endless environments to work in, each and everyone different from the next. Getting out and creating work has a profound effect on my mental health. It keeps my mind healthy and content.”
