CREATE AN OUTDOOR SCULPTURE
Andrew Goldsworthy is a British artist who creates unique works of art in the environment using all natural objects such as pebbles, twigs, branches, pine cones, mud, leaves and petals. Much of his work is meant to be temporary. He takes pictures of his work and then allows it to remain in the natural environment and decay over time. Sometimes he photographs the same work in different conditions. Goldsworthy says he “works with nature as a whole” and doesn’t use man-made tools to produce his artwork. Create your own sculpture inspired by Andrew Goldsworthy!
