“I enjoy the freedom of just using my hands and “found” tools – a sharp stone, the quill of a feather, thorns. I take the opportunities each day offers: if it is snowing, I work with snow, at leaf-fall it will be leaves.”
Abstract leaves filled our desks this week. The bright colours of fall were first scraped across our paper mixing bright yellow, rich orange and crimson making a stunning background for our pieces. Next we painted in the negative spaces surrounding our leaves with black acrylic paint and finished with a few colourful details.
Andy Goldsworthy inspired our art, he is a British sculptor, photographer and environmentalist producing site-specific sculpture and land art situated in natural and urban settings.
