Author(s): Andy Goldsworthy


Following the publication of "Andy Goldsworthy", the artist's celebration of nature, "Stone" is a new exploration of rock and stone, drawing on Goldsworthy's work of the last three years. A riverside slab of rock in St Louis, Missouri, glows with the colours of autumn leaves, becomes part of a wall, acquires an overall covering of green leaves, and is cradled in a nest of branches. In a forest in the Lake District, a wall snakes its way through the trees. Sandstone arches progress across the floor of a Dumfriesshire quarry. A dead tree in the Australian outback is miraculously clothed in rust-red sand. Underlying all Goldsworthy's work is a sympathy with and sensitivity to nature, a concern with the interaction between its power, its delicacy and its transience. His creations are not static and immune from the elements but invite the unceasing change that characterizes the natural world.
