Andy Goldsworthy is an extraordinary, innovative British artist who creates land art. He uses a seemingly endless array of materials including snow, ice, leaves, bark, clay, stone, twigs, feathers and petals.He is undeterred by the weather and deliberately works in the spot where he finds his materials, no matter how inconvenient it may be. He wants his art to be sensitive and alert to changes in material, season and weather.
I find his work to be very useful for what I'm working on at the moment. I've been using found objects from nature in my work, so to see all the creations Goldsworthy has made using the same idea is very inspiring and helpful!
