Andy Goldsworthy works with nature only and creates so-called land art. His works are vulnerable and transient. For his ephermal works, Goldsworthy often uses only his bare hands, teeth and found tools to prepare and arrange the materials.
I got to see/transport this piece the other day for work. This is the first time I have ever seen any of Goldsworthy’s work that wasn’t a permanent piece. I was amazed at how delicate it was with just the sticks binding the leaves, really amazing.
If you are seeing this and have not see Rivers and Tides (film) yet you should check it out.
