‘If I had to describe my work in one word, that word would be time’ – Andy Goldsworthy

Now in paperback

Time is always a crucial element in the work of Andy Goldsworthy – both as a medium and as a metaphor. An introduction by the artist conveys the importance to him of time, change and place. A sequence of works made around his home in Scotland – often shown in series recording their gradual disappearance or transformation – is followed by Goldsworthy’s diaries of visits to five locations in North America and Europe, vividly evoking, in text and pictures, the process of exploration and response to each place.

With a detailed chronology by Dr Terry Friedman, this volume is an invaluable source of reference on Andy Goldsworthy and his compelling, sensitive work.

Andy Goldsworthy is an internationally renowned sculptor. Among his other books are Wall, Passage, Enclosure and Hand to Earth. Terry Friedman is an architectural historian and former Prinicipal Keeper of Leeds City Art Gallery and The Henry Moore Centre for the Study of Sculpture.
