Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 land—former farmland in an area once rich in stone walls—is one of his most impressive and important permanent artworks. The books stunning color photographs show the wall from every vantage point and in all four seasons, and document ephemeral work made around it. Kenneth Bakers essay considers the Storm King wall in the context of Goldsworthys other work.

Synopsis:

Famed artist Andy Goldsworthy has created spectacular outdoor sculpture with all natural materials. This 2,284-foot-long stone wall snakes through the trees, plunges into a lake, and heads up a grassy slope. Also photographed are ephemeral natural works that were created on or near the wall.

About the Author

Andy Goldsworthy was born in 1956 in Cheshire, England. His work is regularly exhibited in Britain, France, the United States, Japan, and elsewhere. Although commissions take him all over the world, the landscape around his home in Dumfriesshire, Scotland, remains at the heart of his work. His previous books include Abrams Andy Goldsworthy: A Collaboration with Nature, Hand to Earth, Stone, Wood, and Arch. Jerry L. Thompson is a highly regarded photographer who has contributed to a number of books, including Abrams Mark di Suvero. Kenneth Baker is an art critic at the San Francisco Chronicle.
