Overview

In this first paperback edition of his enormously successful Time, internationally acclaimed artist Andy Goldsworthy presents a wealth of work that uses time itself as a medium: on a Scottish hillside a huge rectangle of compacted snow becomes ever more visible as the surrounding snowfall melts away; clay walls dry out and crack, revealing new forms embedded within them; a sculpture of re-formed icicles catches the morning sunshine. This spectacular collection of color photographs celebrates the many ways in which Goldsworthy’s art evokes the passage of time.

Presenting key works along with revealing excerpts from Goldsworthy’s working diaries, this perceptive overview—which includes an extensive illustrated chronology by Terry Friedman—is a necessity for anyone who loves Goldsworthy’s art.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Smithsonian magazine wrote of environmental artist Andy Goldsworthy: "A new kind of poetry is created when Andy Goldsworthy works with stone, wood and water -- our world never looks quite the same again." Goldsworthy's Time is a first-person account of the process by which the artist creates his often ephemeral work, comprising five different diaries that were written while he was preparing installations in Santa Fe, Cornell University, Holland, the south of France, and Nova Scotia.
