Artist Andy Goldsworthy rearranges natural elements like dying leaves, rocks, twigs, and ice crystals to create amazing illusions that pay homage to the natural world. Circles, spirals, arches, and other shapes found in nature are all enhanced by the artist’s assemblages which he constructs, photographs, and leaves for nature to slowly reclaim.
Periodically, we come across a bit of assemblage or sculpture on the beach in Fire Island, and it always makes our day. It must be such a pleasure to come upon one of Goldsworthy’s meticulous temporary art installations. They must be incredibly time consuming, but having grown up working on his father’s farm, Goldsworthy is no stranger to hard work.
“A lot of my earth art is like picking potatoes. You have to get into the rhythm of it.”– Andy Goldsworthy
