Description



About the Book



"Andy Goldsworthy: Projects presents more than forty of the artist's large-scale sculptural works from around the world. Using local materials--including stone, clay, and wood--Goldsworthy's projects result from a rigorous interaction with the materials and conditions that he encounters where he is. For Goldsworthy, nature does not stop at the city or with people. Each project subjects Gorldsworthy's ideas about the work to the brute facts of natural forces: sunlight, sedimentation, tides, erosion, extremes of heat and cold, and growth and decay. Compelling and thought provoking, the hard-won simplicity of each project is underscored by a complex thought-and-construction process--revealed here in photographs, drawings, notes, and an in-depth interview"--



Book Synopsis



Andy Goldsworthy: Projects presents more than 40 of the artist's recent large-scale sculptural work from around the world. Using local materials--including stone, clay, and wood--Goldsworthy's projects are inspired by and interact with the natural landscape. Each project subjects Goldsworthy's ideas about the work to the brute facts and forces of nature: sunlight, sedimentation, tides, erosion, extremes of heat and cold, and plant growth and decay. Situated mostly throughout Europe and the United States, Goldsworthy's projects are as beautiful as they are thought-provoking. Each one is accompanied with notes by the artist, and many have not been published previously.

Andy Goldsworthy: Projects is a companion volume to Andy Goldsworthy: Ephemeral Works (2015).
