Yorkshire Sculpture Park - Andy Goldsworthy
I have several of Andy Goldsworthy's books but had never seen any of his work in real life so was thrilled to realize he had some pieces in the park - not the strategically balanced temporary installations he often does but permanent ones using dry stone walls. This pic shows one of 3 enclosures with a tree hanging in the centre created along the run of a really long stone wall. The stones were built around the branches with typical Goldsworthy precision. The whole work is titled "Hanging Trees" - an obvious choice! Enlarge for a better view.
