Andy Goldsworthy
Sweet Chestnut Leaf Hole
Photograph, 46 x 36 cm
Reg. No: G1199
Recognised as one of Britain's most popular modern artists, Andy Goldsworthy was born in Cheshire in 1956, and graduated from Lancaster Art College in 1978. His photography presents sculptures created from natural materials in order to capture the transient heart of nature. This piece is typical of his approach, utilising a hole cut in the foliage of chestnut leaves to focus the viewer's attention on the natural world.
