Andy Goldsworthy <3 one of my FAVS!!! --- I think that there are many things to learn from this artist... conservation, appreciation of nature, the cyles of the seasons, abstraction, composition, and yeah. :) *happy* The kids are doing 4 separate projects, at the end of the year we will put each of their "four seasons" in a frame. At the end I hope they just appreciate nature even more, and also the vision of an artist that is different than those they know.
EL ANATSUI El Anatsui is one of the most exciting contemporary visual artists of our time. Emerging from the vibrant post-independence art movements of 1960s and ’70s West Africa, he has gone on to receive widespread international acclaim for his sculptural experiments with media, form and tradition. October Gallery has been working closely together with El Anatsui since 1993.
South African calligrapher Andrew van der Merwe has developed various wedge- and scoop-shaped tools to allow him to carve letters out of beach sand. This is a picture of one of his creations, on a beach in Belgium.
