Ohhh I just adore Andy Goldsworthy! Ever since I saw his work in art school he left an impression that still informs and inspires me. Hailing from Scotland, he uses the tools of nature to create elegant works of art.
These are just some of his ice sculptures but he has SO MANY MORE:
It’s really something to see him sculpt these things! He goes out in the early morning before the sun rises so the ice is at it’s coldest and uses the heat of his bare hands to sculpt the ice, creating work like this that melts in about a day. What a badass.
And he doesn’t just work with ice, either. He makes temporal pieces out of anything that’s around him, like leaves….
Sticks and branches….
Seriously, though, check him out. The inspiration is well worth it.
this is…like the coolest thing i have ever seen hands down.
He paints a mental canvas with the ink of his endless thoughts. His brain is his bible and he preaches what's on his mind. He listens through his eyes and his emotions lie within his body language. He plants his thoughts with his personality. Up for anything, but not down for everything. He'll begin the puzzle, but it's up to you to figure him out. He doesn't follow the hype, he stays underground. Thousands have seen him, many know him, few understand him, but only one can judge him and that's himself.
