publication of the International Sculpture Center
in print version available at fine newsstands and through subscription.
This late spring/early
summer issue of Sculpture includes two articles on Andy Goldsworthy, one
emphasizing a project of continental scope in the United States and the
other featuring several recent projects in Britain. These articles recognize
Goldsworthys unique ability to reach large mainstream audiences
(as can be seen in the reception of the current film on his work, Rivers
and Tides, which is playing in movie theaters rather than art museums)
while doing work that is significant in the context of contemporary art.
A central aspect of Goldsworthys work (and its public appeal) is
his use of natural materials, and Brooke Kamin Rapaports article
in this issue deals with a group of younger artists also using plant materials,
though in very different ways. Margaret Sheffield offers an overview of
three distinctive sculpture parks, each offering both natural settings
and appealing public venues for contemporary sculpture. Karin Giustis
work has more to do with sign systems than natural materials, but her
best known work, White House/Green House, is an evocative use of plants
(roses) in an environment that blends nature and artifice.
