Man Arranges Leaves, Sticks, And Stones To Create Magical Land Artworks


Andy Goldsworthy, a Scottish artist has set about creating breathtaking works of art using only natural materials, and in a natural environment.




All of his sculptures are done outside in nature, using any natural materials he can, to an amazing effect.
 




Goldsworthy has been met with critisicm of his art, with some saying that the transient nature of creating art such as this is a comment on the earth's fragility, but Goldsworthy has justified his beautiful art and the reason behind it:

“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. 

“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.”
