Andy Goldsworthy is a brilliant British artist who collaborates with nature to make his creations. The materials used in his art often include brightly-coloured flowers, icicles, leaves, mud, pinecones, snow, stone, twigs, and thorns.He likes the connections between the earth and the seeds. He doesn’t mind about the destruction of his natural artworks…he said in “Rivers and Tides” documentary when the destruction happens another part of nature life comes. The sea, the rivers and the growth of grass shapes and redesign his works. He loves the flow of the nature.
His words: “Movement, change, light, growth and decay are the lifeblood of nature, the energies that I try to tap through my work. I need the shock of touch, the resistance of place, materials and weather, the earth as my source. Nature is in a state of change and that change is the key to understanding. I want my art to be sensitive and alert to changes in material, season and weather. Each work grows, stays, decays. Process and decay are implicit. Transience in my work reflects what I find in nature.”
