Environmental – earthworks

Earthworks is a category of mixed-media that relies on using natural materials and assembling them into forms of the artist’s conception. It is also a non-destructive and environmentally conscious means of creating art that simply disappears back into the natural environment. The most famous exponent of this method of work is the Scottish artist, Andy Goldsworthy.
