This spectacular book brings together work made by Andy Goldsworthy in Britain, France, the United States, Australia and Japan between 1990 and 1993. It includes works that involve not only stone of various kinds – slate, limestone, sandstone, river boulders – but also leaves, flowers, sand, clay and scrap steel. A riverside slab of rock in St Louis, Missouri, glows with the colours of autumn leaves, becomes part of a wall, acquires an overall covering of green leaves, and is cradled in a nest of branches. In a forest in the Lake District, a wall snakes its way through the trees. Sandstone arches progress across the floor of a Dumfriesshire quarry. A dead tree in the Australian outback is miraculously clothed in rust-red sand… Stone: Andy Goldsworthy offers an unparalleled opportunity to appreciate the extraordinary breadth of the artist’s output and to understand more about this exceptionally talented sculptor whose work is accorded worldwide recognition.
