Andy Goldsworthy

-British sculptor and photographer, and environmentalist living in Scotland
- produces site-specific sculpture and land art situated in natural and urban settings
- uses natural/found objects

"I find some of my new works disturbing, just as I find nature as a whole disturbing. The landscape is often perceived as pastoral, pretty, beautiful – something to be enjoyed as a backdrop to your weekend before going back to the nitty-gritty of urban life. But anybody who works the land knows it's not like that. Nature can be harsh – difficult and brutal, as well as beautiful. You couldn't walk five minutes from here without coming across something that is dead or decaying."
