Staff Reviews


I have long admired Andy Goldsworthy’s intricate, stunning artwork. Working outdoors almost daily and using materials found on site, he creates complex, symmetrical structures and designs. As these works are often temporary and frequently collapse during their creation, this requires immense patience and concentration. This book features about 200 works, selected by Goldsworthy himself, that showcase his career and creative process. It is indescribably beautiful. It leaves me speechless every time I look at it.

— Flannery

Description


On an almost daily basis, Andy Goldsworthy makes art using the materials and conditions he encounters wherever he is, be it the land around his Scottish home, the mountain regions of France or Spain, or the sidewalks of New York City, Glasgow, or Rio de Janeiro. Out of earth, rocks, leaves, ice, snow, rain, sunlight, and shadow he creates works that exist briefly before they are altered and erased by natural processes. They are documented in his photographs, and their larger meanings are bound up with the forces that they embody: materiality, temporality, growth, vitality, permanence, decay, chance, labor, and memory.
 
Ephemeral Works features approximately 200 of these works, selected by Goldsworthy from thousands he has made between 2001 and the present and arranged in chronological sequence, capturing his creative process as it interacts with material, place, and the passage of time and seasons.
