With the help of leaves, sticks, rocks, or anything that can be found from outside, a Scottish Sculptor Andy Goldsworthy creates transitory works of art.
His works are causing people to perceive it as a criticism of Erath Fragility and it is called as transient and ephemeral. But, it is more complicated to Goldsworthy.
He said in an interview, “When I make something, in a field or street, it may vanish but it’s part of the history of those places. 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. They harbor from which many troops left for war was in the background.” By Markus Seward
