andy goldsworthy

i have been in a little fit of creation lately which tends to drown everything else out..but the whole family crawled into bed the other night and watched "rivers and tides", a documentary on andy goldsworthy. i thought when i ordered it i was getting a film on the american artist that makes amazing reed and grass structures (name? do you know?) but was thrilled to learn about mr. goldsworthy in his stead. this artist/naturalist creates artwork on site using only material and tools that nature supplies in the immediate area. sometimes it falls apart before he is finished, sometimes several times and he never finishes. the film is just mesmerizing. we are so inspired to build something on the beach this summer, we can hardly stand it. i could not find an official website for him but i did find these images via

WOW. I'm totally inspired right now. Will rent that doc and perhaps even pay homage to Andy with a few experimental pieces of my own. Thanks for introducing me to Andy!

Very amused by the vintage Gucci scissors......we all need those!
The portrait photographs were stunning too.

I've seen his work before and I will never forget it! It's inspired my husband and me to try our hand at rock-stacking.

His work is truly amazing and so poignant at the moment. I love how he just leaves his work behind and it returns into nature. Thankyou for reminding me about Andy Goldsworthy!
