An earth/land artist is a professional landscaper whose central focus is a return to Nature. Land artists emerged in the 1960s in protest to the artificiality and commercial orientation of art of the time. Rejecting museums as the proper forum for art, land artists turned to the earth itself as their gallery. Land art shapes the natural environment into conceptual forms that speak to the culture, geography, and values of the region.
