    The Art of Andy Goldsworthy:

    Complete Works (Paperback)

    ...

    by William Malpas

    A new, special edition of the study of the contemporary British sculptor, Andy Goldsworthy, including a new introduction, new bibliography and many new illustrations.

    This is the most comprehensive, up-to-date, well-researched and in-depth account of Goldsworthy's art available anywhere.

    Andy Goldsworthy makes land art. His sculpture is a sensitive, intuitive response to nature, light, time, growth, the seasons and the earth. Goldsworthy's environmental art is becoming ever more popular: 1993's art book Stone was a bestseller; the press raved about Goldsworthy taking over a number of London West End art galleries in 1994; during 1995 Goldsworthy designed a set of Royal Mail stamps and had a show at the British Museum.
    Malpas surveys all of Goldsworthy's art, and analyzes his relation with other land artists such as Robert Smithson, Walter de Maria, Richard Long and David Nash, and his place in the contemporary British art scene.

    The Art of Andy Goldsworthy discusses all of Goldsworthy's important and recent exhibitions and books, including the Sheepfolds project; the Channel Four documentaries; Passage (2004); the Holocaust memorial in New York (2003); and Goldsworthy's collaboration on a dance performance.

    REVIEW ON AMAZON:

    I'm no expert on visual art, nor would I claim to be, but I found this to be a useful book, and the only one I've been able to find about the work of Andy Goldsworthy. The author has taken the time to round up a large amount of varied source material which makes this book well worth seeking out.
     

    REVIEW ON AMAZON:

    A happily received gift. It's worth the price for one who wants a scholarly while earthy (sorry, couldn't help it) approach to the work. There's a quirkiness about the writing style that is engaging and honest. I'm glad I have the book and will reread it as I purchase other books on Goldsworthy where the work is shown via great photography.
     



     
     

    The Art of Andy Goldsworthy:

    Complete Works (Hardback)

    ...

    by William Malpas

    A new, special edition of the study of the contemporary British sculptor, Andy Goldsworthy, including a new introduction, new bibliography and many new illustrations.

    The hardback edition updates the paperback, and includes the latest information on Goldsworthy. It has been rewritten throughout.

    This is the most comprehensive, up-to-date, well-researched and in-depth account of Goldsworthy's art available anywhere.

    A new and up-to-date appraisal of the contemporary British sculptor, Andy Goldsworthy, who makes 'land' or 'earth' art. His sculpture is a sensitive, intuitive response to nature, light, time, growth, the seasons and the earth. Goldsworthy's environmental art is becoming ever more popular: 1993's art book Stone was a bestseller; the press raved about Goldsworthy taking over a number of London West End art galleries in 1994; during 1995 Goldsworthy designed a set of Royal Mail stamps and had a show at the British Museum. Malpas surveys all of Goldsworthy's art, and analyzes his relation with other earth/ land artists such as Robert Smithson, Walter de Maria, Richard Long and David Nash, and his place in the contemporary British art scene.
    Andy Goldsworthy is a particularly gentle and sensitive artist: he stitches together leaves to forms lines, often placed in water, or makes circular slabs of snow, or entwines twigs in an arc. He creates a delicate spiral of chestnut leaves, called Autumn Horn; he pins bright yellow dandelions on willowherb stalks in a circle, on bluebells; he makes lines and cairns, like Richard Long, of pebbles; he makes hollow, circular structures, like igloos, from slate, leaves, driftwood and bracken; he makes long wavy ridges in Arizonian desert sand; he makes arches, globes, hollow spheres, slabs, spires, spirals and star-shapes out of snow and ice. Very impressive it all is. The sculptures made of sticks, for instance, stuck together in an arch, or a line, reflected in the mirror-like water of Derwent Water in Cumbria, are indeed wonderful. The sculptures exude tranquillity, an early morning calm. Or the globe made from oak leaves in various states of autumnal decay, superb stuff. Or the globe made out of snow, and perched amidst some young trees, or the slabs of snow, set up in a line with slits cut in them.

    The Art of Andy Goldsworthy discusses all of Goldsworthy's important and recent exhibitions and books, including the Sheepfolds project; the Channel Four documentaries; Timeand Passage; the New York Holocaust memorial (2003); and Goldsworthy's collaboration on a dance performance.

    Andy Goldsworthy in Close-Up (Hardback)


    ...

    by William Malpas

    Andy Goldsworthy born in Cheshire in 1956. He studied at Harrogate High School, Bradford College of Art (the archetypal British art school ethics of liberalism, experimentation, art history discussions and the embrace of avant garde art prevailed here) and Preston Polytechnic, where he studied on the BA Fine Art course, graduating in 1978. Goldsworthy has lived mainly in the North of the UK: Bentham and Illkley (Yorkshire), Brough (Cumbria) and Penpont (Dumfriesshire). Many of Goldsworthy's site-specific works and commissions have been in the North: the giant maze and Lambton Earthwork (at County Durham, 1988-9), the Grizedale Forest site works (1984 onwards), residencies at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (1987), the Lake District National Park (1988), and so on. Goldsworthy has worked at the Venice Biennale, Grise Fiord and the North Pole, in Japan, Castres and Sidobre in France, and in Haarlem, Holland. He has had one-man shows in France, Japan, Holland and the UK, and participated in groups shows in Italy, Germany, and the USA. A major retrospective, Hand to Earth: Andy Goldsworthy: Sculpture: 1976-1990, was held at the Henry Moore Centre for the Study of Sculpture, Leeds City Art Gallery: the show also travelled to the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh, Stedelijke Musea, Gouda and Centre Regional d'Art Contemporain Midi-Pyrenees in Toulouse. Goldsworthy's work has appeared on TV (in, as expected, Channel Four documentaries, The Late Show, an Arts Council film (Two Autumns), and regional news programmes, as well as a couple of Japanese broadcasts), also the ubiquitous appearances on Radio 4's dull arts show Kaleidoscope and Radio 3's arts interview slot, Third Ear. A half-hour BBC TV programme on Goldsworthy's Sheepfolds project was aired in 1997; there was also a Sheepfolds exhibition at Michael Hue-Williams Gallery in London. In the 1990s, Goldsworthy's art began to rise in popularity: the glossy coffee table book Stone became a bestseller. In 1994 Goldsworthy took over some West End galleries with a large one-man show. In 1995 he took part in an intriguing group show at the British Museum, creating sculptures, along with Richard Deacon, Peter Randall-Page and others, in amongst the monumental statuary of the famous Egyptian Hall. Also in 1995, Goldsworthy designed a set of Royal Mail stamps. Goldsworthy continues to work in countries such as Japan, Australia, Canada and North America, France, but his home ground of Dumfriesshire in Scotland remains (at) the heart of his work.

    Andy Goldsworthy

    Touching Nature (Paperback)


    ...

    by William Malpas

    A new and revised edition of our best-selling book on Andy Goldsworthy. A completely rewritten exploration of the sculptor, updated to include recent works such as Night Path (2002) and Chalk Stones (2003) in Sussex, Three Cairns (2002) on the East and West coasts, Stone Houses (2004) and Garden of Stones (2003) in Gotham, Passage (2005) in London, and Slate Domes (2005) in Washington, DC.
    Andy Goldsworthy makes 'land' or 'earth' art out of, among other materials, stacks of rocks, or stalks tied together, or mud thrown into rivers or poppy petals wrapped around boulders. His art is a sensitive, intuitive response to nature, light, time, growth, the seasons and the earth.

    Malpas surveys all of Goldsworthy's art, and discusses his relation with other earth/ land artists such as Robert Smithson, Walter de Maria, Richard Long and David Nash.

    Andy Goldsworthy:

    Pocket Guide

    ...

    by William Malpas

    A pocket-sized guide to the art of Andy Goldsworthy, Britian's foremost sculptor of the natural world. This book tells you everything you need to know about Andy Goldsworthy and his artworks.

    Andy Goldsworthy works with the natural world, and within nature. He uses natural materials in natural shapes and forms set in natural contexts. Goldsworthy takes his cue from nature: as Jan Dibbets put it in 1969: 'I realized that if you want to use nature, you have to derive the appropriate structure from nature too'. Nature may be the starting-point but, as we'll see, the endpoint - art - is entirely cultural and not something you'll ever find in the natural world.

     Land Art in Close-Up


    ...

    by William Malpas

    For the land artist, the whole planet is an artist's studio. The land artist ranges over the whole globe. A desert, a beach, a field, a forest becomes a studio, a place of creative activity. This means the very texture and colour and shape and dampness and springiness and strength and size of moss, for instance. Or a stone. Or a crevice in a rock formation. The way the light falls on a patch of grass, the little bits of dead, yellowish grass on top of the newer, green grass. Pine cones, closed-up. Flowers turning sunward in the late afternoon. These are the things land artists deal with in making art. These are the actualities that artists employ when they create artworks.
    This new book contains all of the major land, environmental and earthwork artists of the past 40 years, including James Turrell and his vast volcano site, Hans Haacke's Conceptual art, Michael Heizer's Mid-West earthworks, Robert Smithson and his giant spiral, entropic earthworks, Christo's wrapped buildings and islands, Robert Morris's environments, Walter de Maria's Romantic Lightning Field, David Nash's stoves, stones, trees and North Wales environments, Hamish Fulton's walks and words, Dennis Oppenheim's concentric snow circles, Richard Long and his art of walking, Andy Goldsworthy's natural, spontaneous, eco-friendly sculptures, Alice Aycock's mysterious underground mazes, Mary Miss's sunken pools and pavilions, Wolfgang Laib's delicate, luminous pollen spreads, Nancy Holt and her observation sculptures and the enigmatic floor sculptures of Carl Andre. Here are towers, stars, stones, pools, tunnels, pipes,maps, chasms, ladders, mounds, scars, mirrors, cones, furrows, mazes, circles, hills and gardens.

    The central fact and act of Richard Long's art is walking. His work is founded on the art of walking, the act of walking, the actuality of walking, and on walking as art, as act, as experience. His walks become 'artwalks', artwalks which become artworks.
    Richard Long is a British land artist and sculptor who works with and in the natural world, but also with and within the highly sophisticated, artificial and humanmade world of art and culture. 'I too wanted to make nature the subject of my work,' Long explained of his early work, 'but in new ways. I started working outside using natural materials like grass and water, and this evolved into the idea of making a sculpture by walking'.
    Richard Long is sometimes termed a ‘Romantic’ sculptor, and part of this book relates his art to British Romanticism, as found in the literature of William Wordsworth, Percy Bysshe Shelley, John Keats and others, and the British landscape tradition, as in J.M.W. Turner, John Constable, Thomas Girtin and other landscape painters. Aspects of British Romantic culture in 20th century and 21st century art also considered (such as the ‘New Ruralists’, ‘New Romantics’, ‘New Arcadians’ and ‘Neo-Romantics’). Malpas also explore some of the aspects of Romantic culture in Europe as well as Britain.
    In the course of this book William Malpas references many of Richard Long’s contemporary British sculptors (Tony Cragg, Bill Woodrow, David Nash, Barry Flanagan, Alison Wilding, Shirazeh Houshiary, Hamish Fulton, Stephen Cox, Philip King, Anthony Caro, Tim Head, William Tucker, Anish Kapoor, Anthony Gormley, David Mach, and Gilbert & George).
     Further chapters include: one on women, feminist, body art and performance sculptors, as a comparison with Richard Long’s art, which has a strong component of performance (even if it’s nearly always private). Also, a consideration of gendered sculpture and art. In the chapter on Minimal, Conceptual, Process and other 1960s and post-1960s art and artists, I’m interested in the artists (primarily European and American) who have most in common with Richard Long’s art: the great Minimal and land artists, such as Donald Judd, Robert Morris, Carl Andre, Sol LeWitt, Dennis Oppenheim, James Turrell and Robert Ryman, and the important Conceptual artists, such as Hans Haacke, Bruce Nauman, Yves Klein and Lawrence Weiner.

    Fully illustrated. Bibliography and notes.
    The new edition has updated and completely revised previous editions.

    AUTHOR’S NOTE: This is a revised edition of a book first published back in 1994. It includes information of the more recent exhibitions and artworks of Richard Long. The book has involved a good deal of research into Long’s art over the years, which has been updated in further editions. I hope that readers will gain some new insights into the artist’s work and that of his contemporaries.
     

    REVIEW ON AMAZON:

    Very satisfied with this book. It includes not only detailed information about Long's work, but also discusses other related artists, such as Barnett Newman, and other related topics, including sculpture, installation and text in art. All in all a very interesting book.

    Richard Long: Pocket Guide

    ...

    A new book on Richard Long in a handy pocket size. The new edition has been completely updated and revised.

    Richard Long is a British land artist and sculptor who works with and in the natural world, but also with and within the highly sophisticated, artificial and humanmade world of art and culture. 'I too wanted to make nature the subject of my work,' Long explained of his early work, 'but in new ways. I started working outside using natural materials like grass and water, and this evolved into the idea of making a sculpture by walking'.
    This book also considers topics such as contemporary and postwar art and sculpture; Richard Long’s contemporaries, including fellow British sculptors; and land art.
    In the course of this book William Malpas references many of Richard Long’s contemporary British sculptors (Tony Cragg, Bill Woodrow, David Nash, Barry Flanagan, Alison Wilding, Shirazeh Houshiary, Richard Wentworth, Boyd Webb, Hamish Fulton, Stephen Cox, Philip King, Anthony Caro, Tim Head, William Tucker, Anish Kapoor, Anthony Gormley, David Mach, Peter Randall-Page, Nicholas Pope and Gilbert & George).
    Further chapters include: one on women, feminist, body art and performance sculptors, as a comparison with Richard Long’s art, which has a strong component of performance (even if it’s nearly always private). Also, a consideration of gendered sculpture and art. In the chapter on Minimal, Conceptual, Process and other 1960s and post-1960s art and artists, I’m interested in the artists (primarily European and American) who have most in common with Richard Long’s art: the great Minimal and land artists, such as Donald Judd, Robert Morris, Carl Andre, Sol LeWitt, Dennis Oppenheim, James Turrell and Robert Ryman, and the important Conceptual artists, such as Hans Haacke, Bruce Nauman, Yves Klein and Lawrence Weiner.

    AUTHOR’S NOTE: This is a revised edition of a book first published in 2007. I have updated the study with information of more recent exhibitions and artworks of Richard Long. The book has involved a good deal of research into Long’s art over the years, and I hope that readers will gain some new insights into this inspiring artist’s work.

    Land Art

    A Complete Guide To Landscape, Environmental, Earthworks, Nature, Sculpture and Installation Art

    ...

    by William Malpas

    A fully illustrated guide to land and environmental art. A newly updated and revised edition of our best-selling book. </P>

    For the land artist, the whole planet is an artist's studio. The land artist ranges over the whole globe. A desert, a beach, a field, a forest becomes a studio, a place of creative activity. This means the very texture and colour and shape and dampness and springiness and strength and size of moss, for instance. Or a stone. Or a crevice in a rock formation. The way the light falls on a patch of grass, the little bits of dead, yellowish grass on top of the newer, green grass. Pine cones, closed-up. Flowers turning sunward in the late afternoon. These are the things land artists deal with in making art. These are the actualities that artists employ when they create artworks.

    This book explores all of the major land, environmental and earthwork artists of the past 40 years, including James Turrell and his vast volcano site • Hans Haacke's Conceptual art • Michael Heizer's Mid-West earthworks • Robert Smithson and his giant spiral, entropic earthworks • Christo's wrapped buildings and islands, • Robert Morris's environments • Walter de Maria's Romantic Lightning Field • David Nash's stoves, stones, trees and North Wales environments • Hamish Fulton's walks and words • Dennis Oppenheim's concentric snow circles • Richard Long and his art of walking • Andy Goldsworthy's natural, spontaneous, eco-friendly sculptures • Alice Aycock's mysterious underground mazes • Mary Miss's sunken pools and pavilions • Wolfgang Laib's delicate, luminous pollen spreads • Nancy Holt and her observation sculptures • and the enigmatic floor sculptures of Carl Andre.
