Andy Goldsworthy

Andy Goldsworthy is one of my favorite sculptors. He works in nature, with nature. His work is short lived or ephemeral and is usually is documented via photography. This link will take you to his digital catalog, where you can look through some of his early works. The image on this post is a sculpture done in Yorkshire, in September 1980 and is called

“Dead hazel sticks
bent over
stuck into bottom of shallow pond
waited for froth and mud to clear
had to go back into water several times to bend a
stick that had sprung up
then had to wait all over again for water to clear
very calm
took a long time for froth to float away
overcast and humid”
