The inspiration that I get from contemporary art comes from the work of Andy Goldsworthy. He is a present day artist very close to my heart. His short-lived pieces made up of materials borrowed from nature, which he in turn, picks out and reworks, exert a strong suggestive influence on me. I especially admire the input of energy and creative power concentrated on the completion of an easily transient work that can, in the blink of an eyelid, revert back to nature due to a breeze or a slight rise in the ambient temperature. The work can, in the economic sense, not directly influence the re-numeration for the input and is thus not subject to classic marketing through the art business. For me this makes him an absolutely exceptional artist.
