  • About the artist
    Andy Goldsworthy is one of several contemporary British artists, like Hamish Fulton and Richard Long, who are associated with ‘Land Art.’ As a boy his first jobs were labouring work on farms – physical activities involving repetitive processes that appealed to him and which he later likened to the way he makes art. He studied fine art at Bradford College of Art in the mid 1970s, completing his BA at Preston Polytechnic in 1978. His first outdoor sculptures were made on the beach at Morecambe Bay while a student in Preston. Since then he has produced sculptures, installations and photographic works in numerous locations around the world. A major retrospective of his work was held in 2007 at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park near Wakefield, for which he made both outdoor and indoor installations.
