Andy Goldsworthy

June, thank you for telling me about Andy Goldsworthy's work. I googled him and came up with some websites with photographs and I love what I see! For anyone who didn't read June's comments and/or may not be familiar with Andy Goldsworthy, he's an artist who works with natural, found materials like dandelions, or driftwood, or pebbles, or ice, and creates a sculpture, takes a photograph of it just after it's finished as a record of what he's done, and then lets nature take it's course, gradually changing and eventually destroying what he's built. Here are a couple of links if anyone else wants to take a look. Center For Global Environmental Education Images of Pantheistic Art 1
