Rivers and Tides

rivers-and-tidesInteresting look at a somewhat unique artist. Andy Goldsworthy creates works of art using only natural materials. Many of these pieces are ephemeral – a sculpture of ice that lasts only until the sun rises, or an arrangement of driftwood pulled apart by the rising tide. Some of them are quite permanent – a wall of rock inspired by a serpentine river. While the pieces were interesting, I had to wonder… how to do the finances of this work? When the artist is out stitching 500 leaves together & sending them down a whitewater stream, is someone paying him for that? Sure, he does get commissions, and probably publishes some stuff… but is that enough to raise 3 kids on? I just wish I knew the full story about some of these people. I mean, more power to him, but… really?
