In 1989 Andy Goldsworthy constructed his Wall that Went for a Walk in Grizedale Forest, Cumbria. Ten years later, aided by a team of wallers from Scotland and the north of England, he has made a successor at Storm King sculpture park in New York State, another farming landscape rich in stone walls. Goldsworthy’s wall takes its lead from an old, dilapidated wall which he found here. At first following the original foundations closely, his wall then describes a series of increasingly voluptuous arabesques before plunging down into a lake. Rising again on the other side, it heads straight up a grassy slope to stop dead when it reaches a major highway. As the seasons change, so does the wall. Heavily shaded in summer, smothered in a sea of yellow and brown leaves in the fall, it has an almost calligraphic beauty in winter as it snakes through the bare trees and snow at the edge of a wood.
