was Rivers and Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working With Time. He uses natural elements like leaves, rocks, twigs etc to create temporary sculpture. What I like about him and his work: totally transitional, in tune with nature and meant to embrace its ephemerality. I do the same type of things in my paintings.
The idea has been around forever. Literally. I think God, while making the Earth with it’s ever changing looks and patterns, had that in mind.
Native Americans have sand paintings. African Tribes use paint on their bodies. Gardeners the world over use it in planning their masterpieces. How about chalk designs on the sidewalk, sand castles or forts at the beach, snowmen or even food. (Have you SEEN Iron Chef ? ! )
Sufficit to say, I enjoyed the documentary much. Andy Goldsworthy has an exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego running until August 26th of this year. Photos and drawings of his work are shown along with some sculpture.
Other news: the new column is up at Writers Monthly.
And the first issue of North with my photos in it is out as well. You’ll notice there is no link to the North site this time. Apparently, a disgruntled previous employee has held the site hostage along with all the email services. He had them registered in his name instead of the business name. People are so strange. In any case, if you happen along a copy of the magazine anywhere in North County, pick one up and let me know what you think.
quick recap for the kids:
can’t wait to see you this weekend.
love to you from me.
