Andy Goldsworthy

Do you know Andy Goldsworthy?

He is one of my favorite artists who I knew while studying art at college. I am not that crazy about appreciating art, but his work just amazes me. I have some of his artbooks, too!

I once wrote a research paper about his work and posted online, but I just realized that the page (my server) was gone :(

Anyway, what I like about his work is he works with nature as a whole. All materials he use are found in nature, such as brightly-coloured flowers, icicles, leaves, mud, pinecones, snow, stone, twigs, and thorns.

Can you believe those materials aren't edited at all?!

I've once been to Storm King Art Center to see his Storm King Wall (1998). I remember it was close to Woodbury Common Premium Outlets! You can shop there afterwards! Ha-ha.

Have a good weekend!

  1. Hi Ochi,

    Don't know Andy Goldsworthy, but his art is beautiful! I think nature pieces are the most eye catching! You know the blog post I did awhile back about the portraits of the Eastern frontier, is one of the most viewed posts. People have a real eye for art, like you and me! :)

  2. Hi Ochisan!
    yes,you are righ that's fish sausage from japan.
    actually,i really don't know how to make a salad,just for fun!hehehe

  3. I'm sorry,but i don't know him.
    but,his art is very interesting for me.
    i will try to search his name.

  4. Good morning jo,

    I think you are far more artistic than me, so I am glad to hear you say so. Yes! I remember your post! I don't like going to a museum, but if I go there, I know I can enjoy, so I hope I can have a chance to go there few times a year ;)

  5. Hi merce-san,

    Do you like the fish sausage? Many people eat it as-is, so it was interesting that you posted a dish made from it ;)

  6. Hello again merce-san,

    Please search ;) I always feel like I could make something like him, someday when I have time. His art has no waste, which is attractive, too!

  7. Good morning Ochisan!
    yes,but not only fish.
    because,little by little,i learned and loved to ate japanese foods.
    anyway,thanks for the replies,and take good care always!!!

  8. I do not know this artist, but love the concept of the hole.My MIL is an artist and we have all her work in my home.

  9. Hi merce,

    I hope you find more Japanese food that you like ;)

  10. Hi Nazarina,

    I saw your new work! They were great!!!
    I hope I can come up with a good idea like you!

    Oops. I'm not getting it... who is MIL?
