Natural sculptures by Andy Goldsworthy.
<i>”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 suburb color photographs.”</i>
Andy Goldsworthy is one of those artists you learn about during high school photography classes. His dynamic use of photography to simplify his natural sculptures ticks all of the metaphorical boxes; aesthetics, technique and concept.
<i>”At its most successful, my ‘touch’ looks into the heart of nature; most days I don’t even get close. These things are all part of a transient process that I cannot understand unless my touch is also transient-only in this way can the cycle remain unbroken and the process be complete.” -Andy Goldsworthy</i>
