Beauty in NatureAndy GoldsworthyAndy Goldsworthy is known for making art out of nature. He says I am no longer content simply to make objects; instead of placing works upon a stone, I am drawn to the stone itself. I want to explore the space within and around the stone through a touch that is a brief moment in its life (Goldsworthy, 1994, p. 6).Goldsworthy, A. (n.d.).Andy Goldworthy[Portrait]. Retrieved from

He is interested in combining and bringing out the different parts of one part of nature. He walks around in nature until he finds something that draws him in. He focuses on all aspects of the elements such as texture, color, and character.

He attaches them together using materials found in nature like clay and water. He also worked with making sculptures out of stones and rocks
