Exploring Land Art at the Sun Valley Center


By DANA DUGAN
Express Staff Writer

Andy Goldsworthy and David Nash are both internationally known artists recognized for their work with natural materials. They have been among the forefront of a movement casually known as Land Art.

Goldsworthy builds transient sculptures, takes photographs of them and bids them goodbye. He says that he uses nature as a partner. There are four large coffee table books of his art, and he has been featured in countless exhibitions.

As for Nash’s largish sculptures, he uses wood only from trees that are already condemned to fall. He considers his way of working to be a form of recycling.

An exhibit of their works, "The Ephemeral and the Organic," is currently on display at the Sun Valley Center for Arts and Humanities in Ketchum.

Kristin Poole, artistic director of the Center, will present a free lecture, "Art, Ecology and the Land," Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Center. She offers an historical context for the exhibition of Goldsworthy and Nash’s works, beginning with an overview of traditional approaches to the landscape and an examination of how contemporary artists are using the land.

Other artists who will be discussed as part of the slide presentation are Thomas Moran, Alfred Bierstadt, Georgia O’Keefe, James Turrell and Robert Smithson. For more information, call the Center at 726-9491.
