Brits in Saint Louis

Now here's a contemporary British artist whose work I've been following with interest for 20 years: Andy Goldsworthy OBE. He began with ephemeral works of carefully arranged berries and slivers of leaves, but has progressed to massive stone sculptures. This photo gives a glimpse of his latest work Stone Sea (2012), a site-specific limestone sculpture at the Saint Louis Art Museum in the USA (CLICK). These arches are in a new courtyard that joins the Museum’s Cass Gilbert-designed Beaux Arts Main Building and the new East Building designed by British architect Sir David Chipperfield (CLICK). Stone Sea and the East Building will open to the public during the Museum's 2-day celebration on 29-30 June 2013.
