Andy Goldsworthy  

Natural Land Sculptures

“Andy Goldsworthy is an extraordinary, innovative British artist whose
collaborations with nature produce uniquely personal and intense
artworks. Using a seemingly endless range of natural materials—snow,
ice, leaves, bark, rock, clay, stones, feathers petals, twigs—he creates
outdoor sculpture that manifests, however fleeting, a sympathetic
contact with the natural world. Before they disappear, or as they
disappear, Goldsworthy, records his work in superb colour photographs.”

The materials used in Andy Goldsworthy’s art often include brightly
coloured flowers, icicles, leaves, mud, pinecones, snow, stone, twigs,
and thorns. He has been quoted as saying, “I think it’s incredibly brave
to be working with flowers and leaves and petals. But I have to: I
can’t edit the materials I work with. My remit is to work with nature as
a whole.” Goldsworthy is generally considered the founder of modern rock balancing.
For his ephemeral works, Goldsworthy often uses only his bare hands,
teeth, and found tools to prepare and arrange the materials. Wikipedia
