Andy Goldsworthy

by Andy Goldsworthy
Publisher's Description
"A riverside slab of rock in St. Louis, Missouri, glows with the colors of autumn leaves, becomes part of a wall, and is cradled in a nest of branches. . . . In a forest in England's lake district a wall snakes its way through the trees. Sandstone arches progress across the floor of a Scottish quarry."--the publisher. Documents of these and other works created over the past three years by Scottish artist Andy Goldsworthy comprise Stone. "It reflects the artist's increasingly strong conviction that the places in which he works are as essential a part of his art as that which he creates."--the publisher. Goldsworthy uses river boulders, mud, clay, slate and limestone to form works that reflect the interaction between nature's transiency, power, and delicacy. The richness of this work is expressed through Goldsworthy's own photographs and text which depict the unceasing change of the natural world.
