Andy Goldsworthy: 'We share a connection with stone'

The land artist explores our relationship with nature

Using materials such as wood, stone and snow, Andy Goldsworthy’s land art explores our connection with nature. TateShots visited him at his studio in southwest Scotland and took a walk with him through the landscape that is at the heart of his work.

Land art is art that is made directly in the landscape, sculpting the land itself into earthworks or making structures in the landscape using natural materials such as rocks or twigs. Land art is usually documented in artworks using photographs and maps which the artist could exhibit in a gallery. Land artists also made land art in the gallery by bringing in material from the landscape and using it to create installations.
