5.0 out of 5 stars very good quality of work, 13 Dec 2001
This review is from: Time (Hardcover)
Over all an excellent book with many facinating sculptures including some great sand work and the clay wall (cover pic). All with the usual high quality photgraphy. Best bit has to be the summery of his work to date over the last pages which, though brief, gives a good insight into the wealth of his diverse work to date.

This review is from: Time: Andy Goldsworthy (Paperback)
THis book has been a saving grace on my sons art work, ideas and looking further into Goldsworthy - very useful book and inspiring artist. It arrived a little later than we thought, but maybe held up over the Christmas period. We're late in thanking you - sorry!

5.0 out of 5 stars Treasure, 10 Feb 2013

This review is from: Time: Andy Goldsworthy (Paperback)
Goldsworthy is an eloquent and generous artist, offering rich insights into his evolving philosophical approach and inspiring contemplative practice. Both the work, and the commentary, develop out of the artist's lived and reflective experience of working with and exploring materials. Thus, it has an extremely broad appeal, conceptually, aesthetically and in terms of skill and mastery. It will be particularly of use to those interested in Japanese 'wabi-sabi', and in ecology and the environment.

This particular book looks at the importance of time in Goldsworthy's art, which is a rewarding seam to mine, underlining the poignancy and wide ethical resonance of works which embrace the changes wrought by natural processes, on scales from the momentary to the geological. Ephemeral, stately, playful, beautiful, surprising, illuminating works fill these pages, richly supported by frank and fascinating diary entries.

This edition is well printed on good paper, of an agreeable size, packed with content, and it features a superb chronology by Terry Friedman.
