I was introduced this week to the absolutely fascinating Andy Goldsworthy, some of whose work is pictured at right. What he builds is probably among the most fascinating work I have ever seen.
Land art is work that has been set free from the boundaries of galleries, and set free by natural conditions such as weather and the tides. Once you see it, I feel it’ll change how you think about sculpture.
I spent some time researching land art after seeing Rivers and Tides, the film Andy is portrayed in, and also came across the amazing South African artist Strijdom van der Merwe, whose work is just as impressive. Do yourself a favour and check out both of these guys.
