Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On an almost daily basis, Andy Goldsworthy makes art using the materials and conditions he encounters wherever he is, be it the land around his Scottish home, the mountain regions of France or Spain, or the sidewalks of New York City, Glasgow, or Rio de Janeiro. Out of earth, rocks, leaves, ice, snow, rain, sunlight, and shadow he creates works that exist briefly before they are altered and erased by natural processes. They are documented in his photographs, and their larger meanings are bound up with the forces that they embody: materiality, temporality, growth, vitality, permanence, decay, chance, labor, and memory.

and#160;

Ephemeral Works features approximately 200 of these works, selected by Goldsworthy from thousands he has made between 2001 and the present and arranged in chronological sequence, capturing his creative process as it interacts with material, place, and the passage of time and seasons.

Synopsis:

Using a seemingly endless range of natural materials, Goldsworthy creates sculpture in the open that manifests a sympathetic contact with the natural world. 120 full-color photographs.

For those unfamiliar with Goldsworthy's art [as was I when I purchased this book for a friend], the thrill and awe of his work with only nature to create art is not to be missed. An amazing and beautiful book. We should ALL see this work.
