Andy Goldsworthy’s Ephemeral Art and Laborious Process, in a New Documentary
Every article about Andy Goldsworthy tells you he's an artist who works with nature. Very early on in director Thomas Riedelsheimer's new film Leaning into the Wind, his second about the artist (after Rivers and Tides, 2001), Goldsworthy says, 'Why even mention it? Nature is everywhere.' For him, the boundaries between nature and self are disappearing fast and that is the basic philosophy behind every piece of art he creates. His artistic journey is an exploration of the inherent connectedness binding people, places, and the environment.
