Andy Goldsworthy

Andy Goldsworthy first worked at Yorkshire Sculpture Park in 1983. Since then, he has established a major international reputation, and is one of the UK's most prominent contemporary artists.

Goldsworthy is a sculptor and photographer whose site-specific artworks directly engage with the environment, incorporating natural specimens and found objects into semi-permanent sculptures, which are then extensively documented in photographs. Goldsworthy grew up in West Yorkshire, and worked as a farm labourer from an early age, an experience that allowed him to develop an intense awareness of his surroundings and an appreciation for the ephemeral qualities of landscape. He studied Fine Art at Bradford School of Art in his hometown, and at Preston Polytechnic in Preston, Lancashire. While in school, he became familiar with other British artists following a similar environmental doctrine, including Richard Long and Hamish Fulton.
