From the Editor


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 Goldsworthy’s 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 Goldsworthy’s work (and its public appeal) is his use of natural materials, and Brooke Kamin Rapaport’s 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 Giusti’s 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.
