Part landscape artist, part earth magician – such is the alluring life of one Mr. Andy Goldsworthy. Residing in the enchanting greens of the Scottish countryside, Andy Goldsworthy works with the land – crafting ephemeral yet exquisite natural installations, sculpting wind, leaves, ice, snow, mud and even rising tides into mesmerising artistic interventions that make up his own little secret multiverse of treasures within the ecosystem.
Layer by layer, stone by stone, branch by branch, petal by petal –Goldsworthy’s obsessive detail in crafting his artworks is painstaking but also treacherously delicate; and often times his loving creations are destroyed by a passing flutter of wind or melted into the gentle heat of the morning sun. Yet a thing is not beautiful because it lasts, and Goldsworthy’s love affair with his surroundings and his work is proof that there’s elegance and grace in the fragility of our natural world, and why it’s so important to protect it at all costs.
