Rosie Leventon's environmental artworks show her background in archaeology - how traces of the past effect the landscape and can reverberate through into the present; and her interest in Green Issues - the impact that man has on the land. Some of her work embodies green principles and environmental awareness. She often uses local and recycled materials and labour. Several pieces provide water for animals and birds where there was none, and some encourage biodiversity and regeneration.
Rosie Leventon's environmental artworks include:
Two pieces of land art commissioned by Stour Valley Arts King's Wood, Challock, Kent. The idea was to subvert the hard edges of this destructive and aggressive aircraft into an ecological negative space cut into the trees.
A long-lasting piece of public art for the Irwell Sculpture Trail. Rosie Leventon lived and worked on site on and off for a year whilst researching and drawing. The work is now used as a seating and performance area.
An architectural artwork commissioned for a private garden. It is fully transparent and can be entered by a door on one side. From the top of the long garden it looks quite narrow, but as you walk around it, it opens out into many lobes.
