I have had the pleasure of walking the length of the Storm King Wall. It is an astounding piece of work.
Also, since I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, I have many times seen his work at the entrance to the De Young Museum -- a series of cracks in the entryway. See sfciviccenter.blogspot.com/2006/02/de-young-museum-1-earthquake-crack.html for photos. Remarkable work.
For these two works, the museum entrance and the Storm King Wall, no, they're not photoshopped!!!

Rina
Wonderful! Great job!!

True to form = an artist's thinking is outside the box and brings a smile to the Creator . . . Good job Andy, find me - inspired!

By far the best artist I've ever seen.

I did a report on Andy Goldsworthy a few days ago actually...

Irene
Wow, awesome! smile

This is ART...no matter how it is accomplished...one can sit back and enjoy and feel these pictures for what they are....ART.
Very satisfying to the eye; wonderful textures, colors and mediums. Kudos to the artist, NOT the poster!

incredible stuff!!!

Mark
This is pretty damn amazing! Visual and constructive artists, true artists that is, astound me especially since I know that I can never do what they do. I do wish there was a credit given at the beginning of this post. Thanks to all here for crediting Goldsworthy. I'll have to look into his work more.

Oh, and Matthew, concrete is as natural a material as bread. It's made up of three basic ingredients gravel, sand and water. Give the Romans their due.

colette
credit the artist. andy goldsworthy.

Really amazing. The creature of this piece of art has a creative and very intelligent person. Andy is the best! Give credit to him.

Cindy Shepard
Yeah..he does incredible stuff....I like the way his mind works..and I did see the documentary.....very interesting!!

boodie
wow, those are amazing, thanks to everyone who mentioned the Artists name, now I can go look at some more of his stuff.

cereal
saw a documentary about this guy wink he doesnt use any tools (like GLUE) its amazing...

Ben
I had to study this artist for year 11 and 12 art, and i love his work. it's just so good.

luminous
Andy Goldsworthy is an amazing artist ..the documentary Rivers and Tides was enchanting

jerkface
To the poster who said it was self indulgent... Art often is. what have you built lately?

Michelle M.
Screw all of you that are still convinced this is photoshopped. Sorry, but people actually do have talent in this world and Goldsworthy is one of them. He needs to be given credit so iggnorant people can stop saying it is "shopped".

anon
haha "shopped" ....No human could do something that good, it's obviously fake.

Andy Goldsworthy is an amazing artist, it's great to see that enough people know about him that an uncredited post such as this can generate enough righteous anger and due credit.

Doug
Not only have you not credited the artist, Andy Goldsworthy, you have the cheek to imprint all the images with your own web address. That stinks. The images and the original work are wonderful. You should either credit and apologise or withdraw.

anon
SHOPPED!!!

mooph
"Use" is stretching it a bit. More like artistic masturbation.

I like it ... but it's still pretty self-indulgent. wink

Matthew
If the category was man made objects from natural objects, I am surprised there aren't photos of the pyramids and Greek ruins (the Romans would be out for the most part because they used cement) as well as those of the Central and South American stone builders.

Chris
I honestly think andy really doesnt give a crap about a blogger not crediting him. If youre and artist you understand.

CR
Agreeing with everyone else here...there's nothing worse than blatantly ignorant blogger. Credit your work, son!

r0r
I love Any's work, I hate whoever it was who gathered all the images, bunged them together, and didn't even bother to credit the orignal artist. Where's the point? Collecting pictures and being a cunt takes little effort, balancing rocks and the other incredible things he does takes a LOT of work, and I mean actual work, not blog shit. Fuck man, where's it all go so wrong, why can't people understand sourcing or crediting these days?

youhoo
Andy Goldsworthy is the tits...still

Eric
Yeah, seriously, give credit for this to Andy Goldsworthy. It's not enough that his name has been mentioned a million times in the comments, here. angry

Anybody else interested in Andy Goldsworthy's work, please watch the documentary film, "Rivers and Tides."

Dave M
No crop circle?

metholustusius
reiteration
creedit andy goldsworthy, prick

Kat
Seriously. Credit Andy Goldsworthy. I recognized this work at once as his, yet his name is not mentioned on this page. I know I'm not the first person to whine about this, but still...

Elizabeth
I love the arch that is, I think, third or fourth from the top. It is earthy, graceful, and inspirational.

maggie
the best thing is that they are so "simple " you believe you could create something similar but of course one can not. This is so very impressive and truly inspiring. I especially like the whole thing, lol..

Gill M>
brilliant, it makes you think 'art just can't go back to the drawing board'.

I agree with the poster about credits. Please credit Goldsworthy here. Otherwise, they're completely out of an important significant context.

anonymous
man: they're by andy goldsworthy.
as a side note, you should:
a) credit any work you repost on the internet that is not your own
&
b) recognize good work when you see it and not reproduce pathetically small, low quality pics. they are meant to be large so you can appreciate his enormous talent.

Mehreen
amazing! smile

Thomas S.
