Blackwell North Amer
British artist Andy Goldsworthy, known for creating art outdoors and from natural materials, has now built a 2,278-foot stone wall at Storm King Art Center, a sculpture park on the Hudson River in Mountainville, New York. This sensitive and detailed response to the land - former farmland in an area rich in stone walls - is one of his most impressive and important sculptures.
The book's stunning color photographs show the wall from every vantage point and in all four seasons, and document ephemeral work made around it. Kenneth Baker's essay considers the Storm King wall in the context of Goldsworthy's previous work, in particular the other walls he has made in the United States, France, and Britain.

VERY GOOD 92 pg book with LOTS of excellent photos documenting Goldsworthy's terrific Storm King winding rock walls built 1997-98. The book is an excellent addition to the DVD documentary "Rivers and Tides" which came out in 2000 (also available from KCLS) which celebrates Goldsworthy's painstakingly intricate masterpieces made entirely of materials found in Mother Nature.
