Sculptor Andy Goldsworthy from Scotland is an author of impressive transitory work in this gallery. He uses things that he can find in the beautiful nature’s chaos and arranges them in interesting artistic concepts. Leaves, sticks, rocks or anything else he can find outside, transform into sculptures of beautiful shapes and color patterns. But, besides their beauty, they have a much deeper meaning. His art is considered transient and ephemeral, and people perceive it as a criticism on the Earth’s fragility. Take a look at his interesting work in the gallery below and what Goldsworthy said about it in an interview.
“When I make something, in a field or street, it may vanish but it’s part of the history of those places…”
“In the early days, my work was about collapse and decay. Now some of the changes that occur are too beautiful to be described as simply decay…”
“At Folkestone I got up early one morning ahead of an incoming tide and covered a boulder in poppy petals…”
“It was calm and the sea slowly and gently washed away the petals, stripping the boulder and creating splashes of red in the sea…”
The harbor from which many troops left for war was in the background,” said Goldsworthy.
