Artist of the Week: Andy Goldsworthy

This special edition of “Artist of the Week,” features photos and videos from a live, in-person, artists talk that I was fortunate to attend.

If you had me as your teacher in 7th grade, chances are you know who Goldsworthy is. We have explored Goldsworthy’s work through mandalas, land art, and more.

Last year, I was lucky enough to see the very famous Andy Goldsworthy speak about his work. At the time he was just wrapping up an installation a new piece on the Albright Knox campus. You can watch a video of “Path” with Andy Goldsworthy discussing the challenges this piece presented.

Here are a few photos that I took during the presentation.

While working on the path they came across a boulder. In this video Goldsworthy talks about excavating the rock.
