Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this first paperback edition of his enormously successful Time, internationally acclaimed artist Andy Goldsworthy presents a wealth of work that uses time itself as a medium: on a Scottish hillside a huge rectangle of compacted snow becomes ever more visible as the surrounding snowfall melts away; clay walls dry out and crack, revealing new forms embedded within them; a sculpture of re-formed icicles catches the morning sunshine. This spectacular collection of color photographs celebrates the many ways in which Goldsworthys art evokes the passage of time.

 

Presenting key works along with revealing excerpts from Goldsworthys working diaries, this perceptive overview—which includes an extensive illustrated chronology by Terry Friedman—is a necessity for anyone who loves Goldsworthys art.

Synopsis:

British artist Andy Goldsworthy has now built a 2,278-foot stone wall at Storm King Art Center, a sculpture park on the Hudson River. Accompanying an exhibition at the center, the book's 60+ stunning color photos show the wall from every vantage point and in all four seasons as the artwork blends with the natural environment.

Synopsis:

British artist Andy Goldsworthy, known for creating art outdoors and from natural materials, has now built a 2,278-foot stone wall at Storm King Art Center, a sculpture park on the Hudson River in Mountainville, New York. This sensitive and detailed response to the landand#8212;former farmland in an area once rich in stone wallsand#8212;is one of his most impressive and important permanent artworks. The bookand#8217;s stunning color photographs show the wall from every vantage point and in all four seasons, and document ephemeral work made around it. Kenneth Bakerand#8217;s essay considers the Storm King wall in the context of Goldsworthyand#8217;s other work.
