Andy Goldsworthy (British, born 1956) is a sculptor who believes in working out of one’s comfort zone. In close collaboration with nature, he arranges, leaves, sticks and stones to create magical works of art. His icicle sculptures share a similar poetic beauty. They rise like stalagmites from the earth, hug tree trunks, or hang for dear life between rocks with a “here today, gone tomorrow” fragility. Goldsworthy knows his artworks won’t last long, so he always takes photographs of them, each a meditation on growth, change, decay, life and death.
