Geology and Art

Research

A significant part of my research is devoted to the relationship between Geology and Art. The main outcomes of my geoartistic research are:

1) Geology in Art, the first book on GeoArt. 'Geology in Art' is the first book to document the artistic phenomena in which geology brings its own aesthetic and conceptual heritage. My book initiates the development of a theory of GeoArt by tracing the diversity of Geologic Art and reporting the thoughts of geoartists with first-hand interviews. The cultural consciousness of Geologic Art can benefit either art or geology enthusiasts, as well as inspire the creativity of artists. GeoArt is a warm and passionate way to express geology, and its knowledge should be important for those involved in education and the popularization of Earth sciences. For the same reason Geologic Art can be a key instrument for environmental and geologic tourism.

2) Geology in Art webzine. I am curing a blog / webzine which makes the point on the subject 'Geology in Art'. It supports my book 'Geology in Art' in tracing the extraordinary diversity of Gelogic Art.

3) Studies on Ichnology and Art. Ichnology is the scientific discipline devoted to the study of traces 毳sil and recent. Its origins are located in a land of convergence between Art and Science, in a historical period 䨥 Renaissance 䵲ing which the scientific method had its birth.
As this area of research has some overlap with my ichnohistorical studies, I redirect to the 'history of ichnology' section for more information.
