Every single artwork made by James Brunt is crafted from 100% all-natural ingredients. He arranges mandalas from stones, towers from pebbles, spirals from twigs and swirls from leaves. One could say that the Earth is his canvas and Mother Nature proffers him his materials… but that would be more than bordering on wankery. Instead we’ll simply note that some of Brunt's works look like Burmese pagodas, some like prostrating parishioners, some kinda Blair Witchy, and all of them enchanting.
Would it be too much to claim his efforts have aesthetically enhanced nature? No, arguably not. But let’s not turn this into a competition lest this little pufferfish gets involved. As to what do Brunt’s artworks mean to propound on – the transience of time; the inevitability of change; the tendency of humans to seek meaning in every little thing – few clues are divulged by the artist himself. Blunt’s refreshingly straightforward website simply notes that he resides in Yorkshire, and studied Fine Art at the Byam Shaw School. Read more about the artist and his super natural creations here.
