Andy Goldsworthy’s Natural Art

With fall finally coming into full swing, I was reminded of this piece by Andy Goldsworthy, in which carefully arranged leaves around a tree give it a near-magical effect. Goldsworthy, a British sculptor, photographer, and environmentalist, is known for his works that incorporate and arrange natural elements into something greater than themselves. He is also known to be the “father of modern rock-balancing”. I am especially drawn to his works by their combination of both familiarity and creativity.
