"...Andy Goldsworthy's original works are not really suited to handling or dealing as conventional works of art, which is perhaps why he photographed them. There is, however, an obvious but important difference in meaning between the photo-pieces and the actual works... Although paintings seek such life in the confines of their illusionistic space, it is clear that Goldsworthy's work is a photograph of Nature in its actuality, and we are able to see the anti-pictoriality of the elm leaves and grass stalks themselves, on solid earth. In other words, my ability to detect the unreality of what is regarded as "Realistic" painting, and my innate recognition of physical space, clash when I look at this photograph. I am thrown into confusion, but my surprise is pleasantly refreshing and gives me a re-awareness of the things which govern my understanding of what I see. After all, paint and canvas are surely no more than two of Nature's raw materials: elm leaves and grass stalks are no different..." Seiji Oshima, Director of the Setagaya Art Museum, Tokyo.
