Andy Goldsworthy: Natural Man | Architectural Digest

February 22, 2016

With the painstaking attention of a fine jeweler, Andy Goldsworthy crafts artworks out of natural materials, including his own body. All of his pieces are designed to disappear as nature takes its course: Ice melts, wind blows, and rain falls, factors that shape how viewers experience Goldsworthy’s constructions over the course of their temporary life spans. The British artist is constantly working, an obsession depicted in his photographs of close to 200 works created over a ten-year period and assembled in the voluminous new book Andy Goldsworthy: Ephemeral Works, 2004–2014 (Abrams, $85).

Few artists match Andy Goldsworthy’s ability to communicate the ephemerality of the beautiful environment in  which we live.
