default Art...

Post by Alethia on Tue Jul 13, 2010 8:42 am

f you’re taking a stroll through the English landscape…Andy Goldsworthy wants to stop you in your tracks.

He’s a British sculptor, photographer and committed environmentalist, and he likes arranging things. He turns random piles of stones into gravity-defying structures and scattered leaves into dazzling gradiated rainbows. He tracks lines and curves upon the ground where none should exist, stacks ice in the unlikeliest of places, and puts patterns and colors into the landscape that would make any onlooker rub their eyes. And the true magic of his work is that for a second – just for a second – you believe it’s the work of Nature. What would your first thought be if you encountered these in the wild?

“Everything has the energy of its making inside it.”

Those were interesting. I especially liked the ice spiralling the tree and the icicle ball.

There is a fabulous documentary film that has been shown on PBS about Goldsworthy's art called Rivers and Tides:

He also has a lot of pictures of his art posted on Flickr:

Wow, I liked the broken stone spiral.
He has a thing about black holes, so cool.
He also has a lot of talent as a photographer.

There are some amazing artists out there. She does use live models, clearly, but what she does with it from there is great.
