Andy Goldsworthy is one of my favorite artists. His works are created from the natural materials found in the immediate environment. Many of his outdoor installations are fleeting - lasting until the turn of the tide, the next gust of wind, spring floods, or until the relentless, inevitable pull of gravity takes over and reconfigures the work.
We visited the area where many artists before have stacked the river rock into their own installations.
The base of a large cairn that the teenagers assembled last year was still intact.
Here is a link to an incredible artist. His books can be purchased at Village Books in Bellingham - my local and favorite bookstore.
Support your local artists, support your local bookstores.
