Using Nature's four elements; earth, air, water, and fire, Andy Goldsworthy explores the ephemeral nature of art and life. Born in Cheshire, England, Goldsworthy travels the world creating harmonious and inspiring environmentally based works from nature. In his creations, Goldsworthy enhances nature's forms, whilst ensuring not to disturb the natural surroundings, in order to remind the viewer of nature's unadulterated beauty. Because of the transient nature of his art, the fact that the wind eventually blows away the leaves or the tide rises to wash away the sand, the majority of Goldsworthy's creations are recorded through photography. Andy Goldsworthy's works have been the subject of major museum exhibitions, such as Andy Goldsworthy on the Roof at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2004, and are part of the collections of institutions, such as the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
