ANDY GOLDSWORTHY In a diverse career spanning five decades, Andy Goldsworthy has become one of the most prominent and iconic contemporary sculptors. In photographs, sculptures, installations, and films, Goldsworthy documents his explorations of the effects of time, the relationship between humans and their natural surroundings, and the beauty in loss and regeneration.
Recent permanent site-specific installations by Goldsworthy include Walking Wall, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Missouri; Hanging Stones, Rosedale, North York Moors, UK; Watershed, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Massachusetts; Arundel Street, London, UK; Stone Sea, Saint Louis Art Museum, Missouri; and Chaumont Cairn, Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire, France. Other permanent works can be seen at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; de Young Museum, California; Museum of Jewish Heritage, New York; Albright Knox Art Gallery, New York; Storm King Art Center, New York; Stanford University, California; Haute Provence Geological Reserve in Digne-les-Bains, France; and The Presidio of San Francisco, California, among numerous other sites.
The artist was born in Cheshire, England, in 1956, and is now based in Scotland.
In lieu of our Annual Gala in New York City, we invite you to participate and support Storm King in a new way this fall. From October 1 – 15, we will celebrate our 60-year commitment to art in nature with free virtual programs featuring Storm King artists, curators, and collaborators, plus an online benefit auction on Artsy featuring works generously donated by Storm King artists.
