Andy Goldsworthy's "Rivers and Tides"

In This Evening's Movie on August 17, 2009 at 3:38 pm

I’d seen it before. Brilliant then. Brilliant now.

Andy Goldsworthy is so charming, I’d be content to watch him read the proverbial phonebook, but to see

is to be in awe. So simple. So alluring. Intriguing. Compelling. Inspiring. A reality check through breathtaking creativity.

Not the least of my admirations of Goldsworthy is his superb ability to make conceptual art accessible. As a curator I often been asked to explain Why is that art? It can be a tough (but fun) question to answer. And one that Andy Goldsworthy does in the best of artists’ way, by showing more than telling.
