  1. 1. Andy Goldsworthy By: Jason Liess
  2. 2. ANDY GOLDSWORTHY <ul><li>From: England </li></ul><ul><li>Born: 29, July 1956 to Present (Age 54) </li></ul><ul><li>Field: Sculpture and Photography </li></ul>
  3. 3. Art <ul><li>Andy Goldsworthy is in the Environmental / Land Movements </li></ul><ul><li>He uses found natural materials including icicles, stones, and leaves </li></ul>
  4. 4. Inspiration <ul><li>Andy Goldsworthy was inspired by Constantin Brancusi, Richard Long, Robert Smithson, </li></ul><ul><li>Joseph Beuys, Ben Nicholson, Paul Nash, and David Nash. Andy Goldsworthy tried to </li></ul><ul><li>depict the beauty of nature by placing ordinary natural objects like leaves and ice into </li></ul><ul><li>Extraordinary compositions. Goldsworthy also produced his nature inspired works during </li></ul><ul><li>the Green Revolution in which saving the planet through recycling and alternative energy </li></ul><ul><li>were major goals. Goldsworthy realized that nature was not all beauty but in fact has a </li></ul><ul><li>harsher side. He said, “I find some of my new works disturbing, just as I find nature as a </li></ul><ul><li>whole disturbing. The landscape is often perceived as pastoral, pretty, beautiful </li></ul><ul><li>something to be enjoyed as a backdrop to your weekend before going back to the nitty </li></ul><ul><li>gritty of urban life. But anybody who works the land knows it's not like that. Nature can be </li></ul><ul><li>harsh – difficult and brutal, as well as beautiful. You couldn't walk five minutes from here </li></ul><ul><li>without coming across something that is dead or decaying.“ Overall Goldsworthy is a </li></ul><ul><li>fabulous artist who knows how to morph the horrors of nature into something of beauty. </li></ul>

  17. 17. Art Criticism
  18. 18. Describe <ul><li>By: Andy Goldsworthy </li></ul><ul><li>Materials: Rocks </li></ul><ul><li>Type of Art: Sculpture </li></ul><ul><li>Title: Broken Stones </li></ul><ul><li>Created In: 1978 </li></ul><ul><li>First Appearance: The first thing you see is the cracked stones </li></ul><ul><li>Use of Lines: The cracks in the stones form many uneven lines </li></ul>
