Andy Goldsworthy

So this book is on my list to buy. After perusing through it, I'm thinking this artist is the closest I have seen to those French magazine clippings from a few years ago that I posted about last month. I am blown away by the sensitivity to nature and color and texture that this artist portrays... He will structure a natural type of form in the middle of nature.... Sometimes leave it and photograph it's deterioration... And sometimes take it down immediately... Like a
sandcastle on the shore... Talk about art, for the joy of doing it.... This book is so unbelievably inspirational and that whole idea of art as the journey feeds my soul in ways that all the productivity in the world cannot touch. Hooray for artists. Hooray for art!


Yup. That pretty much sums it up
