If I had to pick one artist right now, in this very moment, it would be Andy Goldsworthy. He is such an inspiration to me because of his sensitivity to both materials and his surroundings. His work actively energizes and creates spaces where the negative is as important as the positive. There’s a great sense of tension and dynamism despite the simplicity of the concept. Goldsworthy’s work is fragile, delicate, and truly ephemeral in a way that has me saying “Why didn’t I think of that?!”

The connection with the outdoors and sense of soul-searching resonates with my own process. The simplicity of construction and placement also gives me a sense of familiarity. I love reading his materials lists that often include items like found rock, fresh leaves, or spit on poppy petals.

Knowing that his earlier work is temporary makes it very precious, much like our lives, which we often think of as eternal. It’s a fierce reminder of our impermanence and the exquisite beauty that surrounds us daily if we only stop and reflect and are willing to acknowledge its statement. – Martin Blank 2018
