Unbelievable amazing works of art by Scottish sculptor Andy Goldsworthy. He creates ephemeral art by arranging leaves, rocks, twigs, and anything else in nature to create his masterpieces.
Most of Goldsworthy’s art is considered transient and ephemeral, causing people to perceive it as a criticism of the Earth’s fragility. For Goldsworthy, the meaning is more complicated.
“When I make something, in a field or street, it may vanish, but it’s part of the history of those places,” he says in an interview.
Unfortunately, his art is not permanent; it is gone with the forces of nature. Fortunately, he has managed to capture all his work and share it with us.
“In the early days, my work was about collapse and decay. Now some of the changes that occur are too beautiful to be described as simply decay. At Folkestone, I got up early one morning ahead of an incoming tide and covered a boulder in poppy petals. It was calm, and the sea slowly and gently washed away the petals, stripping the boulder and creating splashes of red in the sea. The harbor from which many troops left for war was in the background.”
Below are photos of the stunning creations he has created:
