Andy Goldsworthy

Born in Cheshire England 1956, Andy Goldsworthy is one of the most well known contemporary artist in this modern age. Goldsworthy works with the natural surrounding objects in the setting he decides to work in. He uses these natural object to show the charcteristic of the natural world and the enviroment which surrounds him. Andy Goldsworthy considered himself a perfectionist as once he begun he never stopped, if his art failed and broke apart he would start again. His work is either permanently subsiding in nature or simply falls apart because of nature itself. In most cases, Goldsworthy used his hands and teeth as tools to create his sculptures. Most of his pieces of art had a time limit to complete which Andy Goldsworthy found the best part in making it. This makes him see his own capabilities in the time limit. Goldsworthy was influenced mostly by a roman sculpture named Constantin Branusci.
