New shrub….Andy Goldsworthy

Trinity College-new shrub planted - bright red branches.JPG

While I was walking through campus recently I was drawn to a newly planted shrub beside the College park. The branches were glowing a bright red against the dark brown soil – I had to take a photo. See image below.

When I returned to my studio when I was reviewing the images from the day I revisited this photo and realised that it reminded me of some of the pieces that I had seen by artist Andy Goldsworthy. So I dragged out my beautiful coffee table book of his entitled Wood. See below some of the images from the book.
