The beauty of art is that it needn’t be permanent. Capture the changing seasons to create something pure Goldsworthy.

Contemporary British artist, Andy Goldsworthy, uses and responds to natural materials and surroundings to create art forms. He works mostly outdoors throughout the different seasons of the year, using materials such as leaves, wood, clay, ice and stones. As his artwork is ephemeral, he photographs it before it is changed by the elements. Examples of the beauty and sensitivity of his work can be seen by typing his name into Google Images.
