291 – Snow Blocks Mandala

Snow Blocks Circles
Snow Blocks Circles

British sculptor, photographer and environmentalist, Andy Goldsworthy, created this delightful nature sculpture using blocks of snow to forms these amazing circles. I appreciate the “cool-ness” of his art and at the same time I’m in awe of how he managed to create not just one but four of these pieces. How did he keep them from collapsing in on themselves?

Said about Andy from Melt:

“Andy Goldsworthy is an extraordinary, innovative British artist whose collaborations with nature produce uniquely personal and intense artworks. Using a seemingly endless range of natural materials—snow, ice, leaves, bark, rock, clay, stones, feathers petals, twigs—he creates outdoor sculpture that manifests, however fleeting, a sympathetic contact with the natural world. Before they disappear, or as they disappear, Goldsworthy, records his work in superb colour photographs.”

How fun to be able to co-create some art with nature. As a kid growing up in the Northeast, we played a lot with snow making the usual stuff: snow balls, snow angels, snowmen, and a snow fort. Fun times!

If it manages to snow here this winter, I’m inspired to create something new while out playing in the snow.

Happy Coloring!
