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 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.

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.
