Time is always a crucial element in the work of Andy Goldsworthy – both as a medium and as a metaphor. An introduction by the artist conveys the importance to him of time, change and place. A sequence of works made around his home in Scotland – often shown in series recording their gradual disappearance or transformation – is followed by Goldsworthy’s diaries of visits to five locations in North America and Europe, vividly evoking, in text and pictures, the process of exploration and response to each place.
With a detailed chronology by Dr Terry Friedman, this volume is an invaluable source of reference on Andy Goldsworthy and his compelling, sensitive work.
