Woven Branch Arch, 1986
While browsing through photos of Andy Goldsworthy’s sculptures, I remembered that I have actually seen a documentary about his work! It was a few years ago. but I remember thinking “man this guy must be super OCD”. Anyway, I think a lot of his work represents a very well-thought out precision that must take a lot of insight into how pieces fit together to make a hole.
I chose this photo specifically because it reminds me of Pan’s Labyrinth. It looks scary and pointy and sharp, but at the same time is very open and welcoming. It is amazing how Andy Goldsworthy makes each branch balance perfectly. It seems to defy gravity. I wonder how many times he has messed up a project and gotten really really frustrated.
