Nature isn’t there for the taking, but it is there for the reworking — as long as you respect the land. Such is the case with Andy Goldsworthy, renowned photographer and sculptor who relies on environment to contribute to it. Nature doesn’t inspire Goldsworthy’s art; it is his art. The British artist, now based in Scotland, has struck up a reputation for seeing nature for more than it is, for what it can be.
Landscapes are bountiful with resources, if you know where to look and stay pumped on redistributing accordingly. For an environmentalist like Goldsworthy, that’s no trouble.
For we as a species tread through forests and fields as if they were less alien world and more museum, with only a small portion of us conjuring up relationships that goes beyond wonder. Not quite symbiotic, not quite give and take, Goldsworthy creates outdoor sculptures that resonate with Mother Earth, as it could turn out she may not know art, but knew what she liked.
