Transcript of Artists Interact With Nature: Andy Goldsworthy

Rivers and Tides Trailer Rivers and Tides Movie made in 2001
All about how Andy sees the world and creates his work Cones Photography Arches Holes looks at natures shapes that balance the world About part of a movement called land or environmental art
works with things found in nature to create figures or objects
most sculptures are not made to last forever
beauty in colapse Style Born in Cheshire, England
Studied art at Bradford College
Lives in Scotland where he still produces site specific artwork. Just as important to the art as the sculpture itself
"It has become the way I talk about my sculptures" Goldsworthy's life born in 1956 in Cheshire, England to a mathematician
could be influence on work
Studied fine art in college and later earned and honorary degree
Currently lives in Penpont, Scotland
where he creates a large amount of his work Analyze Light bounces off ice to create many shades of blue that look like only neutral colors at first
Contrast between focal point and background
lines draw viewer into focal point(middle) than draw you back out which creates good rhythm
points are repeated but are varying Description A sculpture of ice
Sphere with icicles pointing in all directions
Snowy rocks serve as backdrop Interpretation The artist is communicating the balance that nature can have
"perfect shapes"
shows the elegance and simplicity nature has Judgment I like this piece it is simple yet once you really observe and get into it you realize that it has many components and took hard work to produce
It is also a piece that you can relate to because almost everyone can recognize an icicle but he has put it in a way that is much more interesting to look at
