There’s no art like Snow Art Written by Mike.S on February 24th, 2012

Well, one thing is certain, French Artist Simon Beck is a snow bound, geometric shape creating god. I don’t know the man personally, but the precision of these works are so on point that I have no choice but to assume the French Artist that uses the snow laden lakes of Savoie, France, as his canvas is one of two things: Either his brain is a Texas Instrument Graphing Calculator or he is an alien or both. Though these assumptions do not give t(his) work justice. In a world that is seeking out new forms of expression, Simon Beck seems to have taken the concept of the snow angel to a new realm of consciousness. The picturesque landscapes have been documented, but imagine yourself on a journey across snow capped terrain only to summit and bare witness to this awesome sight? The experience would undoubtedly stick with you for the rest of your life. Most impressive is its lack of permanence if not documented through photograph. Here today and most certainly gone tomorrow. So here’s to you, Simon Beck, your work if not just amazing, teaches us that time is fragile and should never be taken for granted and that for a fleeting moment this world can be transformed into your own work of art. Touche!
