Just imagine seeing a incredibly detailed Van Gogh painting as you’re flying into or out of the Minneapolis airport.
“It’s an iteration of Van Gogh’s painting writ large in native plants and materials,” Herd told Star Media.
“It never looks like I want it to…I bit off a lot here, to try to pull this off. A few of the plants were eaten by deer, and a few were blown over. But that’s the dance of nature,” he added in a separate interview with MPRNews.
Olive Trees by Vincent Van Gogh
Herd has been doing these types of artworks or ‘earthworks’ since 1981
His most recent project took six months and spans 1.2 acres.
Plenty of mowing, digging and planting were involved which were all sponsored by the Minneapolis Institute of Art
The exhibit has since been mowed down, but check out the video of the entire process along with cool aerial shot of the piece.
