Will Beckers is an environmental artist whose passion is to follow the evolutionary process of plants and natural forms. His artistic work underwent its own evolution from sculptures with clay and bronze to develop into Land Art, specifically Environmental Art. The process of awareness originated to investigate biodiversity and biomimicry in nature.
Beckers specializes in creating site specific natural installations that explore our relationship with the natural world. Much of his site-specific installations and art are to be found in public spaces. His natural installation work invites the public to interact and experience the artwork, involving the visitor and thus inspiring a reaction. Beckers’ environmental artwork often takes the form of a bio- sculpture, or a growing organism that stimulate us to challenge the relationship between individuals and our environment, he is confronting Nature with her own materials. A sustainable way of life and improved living conditions on earth, can be assured with the reconciliation of mankind and the forging of a harmonious relationship between man and nature. As an architect of nature Will Beckers is working towards that goal.
In the framework of the European Landart Network Beckers created for Arte Sella a living sculpture, called “Echo”, which finds its harmony in the use of one material “Nocciolo” showing bio-diversity in one plant species. The work is a tribute to Nature. The title of the work refers to the continuous return of our call as a reflection of the way nature has to cope with our continuous destruction and nature’s constant rebuilding of our Planet. The living sculpture is part of the Arte Natura route on the Contemporary Mountain of Arte Sella.
