About Andy Goldsworthy

Andy Goldsworthy creates outdoor sculpture using an endless array of natural materials, from snow and ice to leaves, grass, stones, clay, petals, and twigs. While influenced by the Land Art of Robert Smithson, Richard Long, and Walter de Maria, Goldsworthy’s ephemeral yet exquisitely crafted works have a geometric elegance that harkens back to the Modernist sculptures of Constantin Brancusi, whom he has also cited as an inspiration. Whether arabesques of ice, beehive stone domes, or delicate leaf patterns on water, his sculptures grow, stray, and decay according to natural cycles, their existence preserved only through vivid photographs and drawings.

British, b. 1956, Cheshire, United Kingdom, based in Scotland, United Kingdom
