Andy Goldsworthy

One of Britain’s most popular artists, Andy Goldsworthy collaborates with nature to make his creations. Using a variety of materials including leaves, twigs, flow petals, pinecones, sand, snow, and stone, his work addresses the idea that artwork too has a natural life that eventually must end. Goldsworthy has produced numerous site-specific works and commissions all over the world, including England, Scotland, Japan, Australia, the United States, and the North Pole. Prints of his creations can be seen in galleries in New York and San Francisco and in the best-selling coffee table books Stone, Wood, Arch, Wall, Hand to Earth, Andy Goldsworthy: A Collaboration with Nature, and Passages (all published by Harry N. Abrams, Inc.). In 2004, Andy Goldsworthy was invited by the Metropolitan Museum of Art to create the annual sculpture on The Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden, the most dramatic outdoor space for sculpture in New York City. The piece is entitled Stone Houses.
