Closure: Brainstorming ideas for tomorrow.
• “For me looking, touching, material, place and
form are all inseparable from the resulting work. It
is difficult to say where one stops and another
begins. Place is found by walking, direction
determined by weather and season. I take the
opportunity each day offers: if it is snowing, I work
in snow, at leaf-fall it will be leaves; a blown over
tree becomes a source of twigs and branches.”

Andy Goldsworthy, Autumn Cherry Leaves
Andy Goldsworthy, (1980s) Ice Spiral Tree Soul Dumfriesshire Scotland
Andy Goldsworthy, out in the morning, the winter, and the wilderness, is working to the
rhythm of the sun, though the it has not yet risen. He is alone, and has brought no tools.
Beside him rests a pile of large icicles, and he is going to work.
Snapping, spitting, and re-freezing the ice at a pace just a bit faster than seems
comfortable, he must finish his work before the day warms up, and his saliva will no
longer freeze.
As the sun rises, he completes the work.
Hanging uncannily around the trunk of a tree, levitating over the snow, is a spiral of ice. It
doesn't seem to touch the tree at all; but it grows from it. The spiral begins high on the
trunk, the tip made from the most delicate icicle, and already a glinting layer of liquid
water has formed as it melts. The ice loops around the trunk again and again, growing
thicker and bolder, surging to several inches across by its end.
Before the day is done, it will have crashed to the ground. The photos, once developed,
are breathtakingly beautiful. Goldsworthy calls the work 'Tree soul.’

Andy Goldsworthy, (December 1987) Snow Circles, Izumi-Mura Japan
• "I enjoy the freedom of just using my hands and "found"
tools--a sharp stone, the quill of a feather, thorns. I take the
opportunities each day offers: if it is snowing, I work with
snow, at leaf-fall it will be with leaves; a blown-over tree
becomes a source of twigs and branches. I stop at a place or
pick up a material because I feel that there is something to be
discovered. Here is where I can learn. -Andy Goldsworthy
Andy Goldsworthy, Driftwood
Igloo
• He creates an igloo out of driftwood collected from the
beach. When the tide comes in, the wooden structure
begins to float and then drift to the sea in a slow swirl. But
Goldsworthy is not attached to his art: "It feels as if it's
been taken off into another plane, another world . . . It
doesn't feel at all like destruction.”- Andy Goldsworthy

Andy Goldsworthy (1983) Red Leaf Patch, Brough Cumbria

Andy Goldsworthy, River Rock finished with gold leaf
• "The underlying tension of a lot of my art is to try and look
through the surface appearance of things. “One way of getting
beneath the surface is to introduce a hole, a window into
what lies below.”- Andy Goldsworthy

Andy Goldsworthy, (2001) The Neuberger Cairn, Purchase New York
• The project, Andy Goldsworthy: Three Cairns, is based upon
his idea to connect the nation’s heartland with its East and
West coasts. Cairns are symbolic stone constructs that
identify a place, which may have societal or ritualistic
importance like Stonehenge. Typically, the stones that
constitute the cairn are held together solely by their own
weight.

Andy Goldsworthy (1985) Carefully Broken Pebbles scratched
white with another stone
Diary: 1st June In the evening went to small beach to work as
the sun went down - time the completion of work with
sundown - broken stones -cracked in two -not easy. Scratched
white around cracks - made a sort of spiral which suited this
work - this is how forms such as spirals/circles/balls appear out of the making and not taken out there to be imposed When
I do that work is stiff

Andy Goldsworthy, Boulder wrapped in Poppy Petals
When I touch a rock, I am touching and working the
space around it. It is not independent of its
surroundings, and the way it sits tells how it came to be
there. – Andy Goldsworthy

Diary: 9th May Swindale Beck - garlic leaves - torn
line - strange effects happening with the leaves subtle greens [...] enjoyed it - much better
day. Felt good to find something so responsive

Goldsworthy’s artwork lasts
as long as the environment
allows it.
