Includes an interview with the artist by Tina Fiske.
"Andy Goldsworthy: Projects presents more than forty of the artist's large-scale sculptural works from around the world. Using local materials--including stone, clay, and wood--Goldsworthy's projects result from a rigorous interaction with the materials and conditions that he encounters where he is. For Goldsworthy, nature does not stop at the city or with people. Each project subjects Gorldsworthy's ideas about the work to the brute facts of natural forces: sunlight, sedimentation, tides, erosion, extremes of heat and cold, and growth and decay. Compelling and thought provoking, the hard-won simplicity of each project is underscored by a complex thought-and-construction process--revealed here in photographs, drawings, notes, and an in-depth interview"--Jacket.
