I just came across an interview on New York Public radio with British artist Andy Goldsworthy.
I had forgotten about him, but my friend Quillian’s wife Isabella had actually turned me on to his art a few years back when she was finishing up her PhD in printmaking at UF.
His work makes use of nature; earth, leaves, twigs, ice, snow, mud etc and is a mix of performance art and sculpture.
The interview is quite thought provoking; as is his work
I think of , color, nature, the ephemeral quality of both, the outdoors vs. indoors
As he explains in the interview he is most interested in the way people and time flow through a space. He is not interested in simply making an object. This helps to explain his interest in the serpentine form its not a line but a path a process…..

A clip from a movie about him
Back in 2013 I visited the Saint Louis Art Museum and saw but was not able to experience (after hours/not enough time), his ‘Stone Sea‘.
