Critic Reviews for Rivers and Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working With Time
A beautiful, probing art documentary.
Most of Goldsworthy's work is impermanent, but Rivers and Tides captures, permanently, both the art and the artist, showing us a creative, productive life in the process of being well-lived.
The artistry of Thomas Riedelsheimer's film perfectly compliments Goldsworthy's art.
[Goldsworthy's] art is meant to be evanescent, like the nature he reveres. We are privileged to see it documented by the filmmaker's camera.
Mr. Goldsworthy's work is meant to be photographed -- 'photography is the way that I talk about my sculptures,' he says -- and Mr. Riedelsheimer rises to the occasion.
Audience Reviews for Rivers and Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working With Time
[font=Century Gothic][color=sienna]"Rivers and Tides" is an interesting, low-key documentary about Andy Goldsworthy, a Scottish sculptor who works in nature while using material that he finds. The documentary captures his working at home in rural Scotland and abroad in Nova Scotia, New York and France. Goldsworthy is not sure what his sculptures will turn out due to the very unpredictability of what he is working with. Some of them are designed to be carried away by the rivers and tides. Thus, he illustrates how nature is ephemeral. It's very different seeing artwork that is not permanent and hanging in a museum.(I was thinking about the temporary paintings that were created only for "The Mystery of Picasso.") Goldsworthy captures these temporary sculptures by photographing them. [/color][/font]
Another documentary about a kooky artist. This one manufactures art of nature and watches as nature washes it away. It's kind of like those little stick forts that you made as a kid that washed away eventually down the drain. This guy never stopped making those forts.
