"Do you realise that every blade of grass is a different shade of green?" - from My Voice Will Go With You
bloody marvelous. Bring on the annual sparkler obscenities!
I prefer yours to his.
not verry origional, done that tipe of stuff b4 but meh
crikey, what a wit you are and so creative
sly. he is great, your not.
"You're", not "your"
mat = mat
Hahaha 'You're not your' nice!!!
Obviously you're not very talented... you remind me as the type who would bully. Clearly, you cannot accept criticism either.
you correct the guy that say's 'your' instead of 'you're' ...yet your name is spelt 'Mat' ?
You mean "says", not "say's"
This is such a tragically bland attempt at humor. :(
hahahahahahahahahhahhahahahahhahahahaa you're just so funny!
You must have a very sad life if this is what you spend your time on.
yeah because this stuff takes forever
Ok the words are sad but the idea behind it is gd ( i mean that if you spelled love or soming )
This made me laugh, you seem to have upset a lot of people with a few leaves... well done :)
My favourite bit was when you spelt out words with leaves.
And when people got upset about it.
Clearly you're a great artist of your generation. Keep up the good work! :D
who do U fink U r!
tlkin filth bout ma man.

GET A LYF LOOSA!
I think that might be the best comment ever left anywhere on the internet.
i hope u lrn from ur mistakez mat. u F00l!
Rather disturbing words to send to a good artist. Although your purpose of building the art was stupid, I really appreciate the artwork.
i saw this and it made my day. I totally agree!
Oh, wow. So mature. I can see your rivalling inspirational artists by writing obscenities in leaves
Art Troll Win!
I love Goldsworthy's work, but I love skewering sacred cows (like the "sanctity" of art!) even more. Well done.
I love Andy Goldsworthy's work, but this actually made me laugh. :P
This is just stupid. Goldsworthy's work is awesome by the way. :)
Ironic that you're trying to criticise Goldworthy's work by mimicking it.
If you don't like it then why bother wasting your time?
I'm a massive fan of Goldsworthy. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and so on.
I could never create anything as beautiful as his work, but I can at least make something that makes me laugh. What's even funnier is the amount of people who didn't get the joke, and then bothered to tell me so.
What makes the joke more impressive is that all these comments have just pushed this page up the results from google images.
Im studying Andy Goldsworthy.. his work is so amazing yet you seem to disrespect him and his work for a small bit of humour. I don't see how you can't get inspired by his work like me and use his inspiration and the depth into his art to do something amazing e.g. write songs, poems, draw
HAHAHA! These pictures made me smile :) Though it actually worries me the amount of people who can't take a joke... :/
Oh sweet jesus christ in a handcart.
I was always moderately fond of young Goldsworthy's stuff but having read some of the comments from his fanboys & girls here, I find I'm rather put off him. I know it's not fair on AG but one simply doesn't like to feel any affinity with such humourless hagiographers.
What Mat's doing is a hoot. It's a little like repainting the Mona Lisa but making her topless. Wouldn't mean that you're saying da Vinci is a talentless git.
So, how many works do you have Mat?
besides the flower petals
I hate to be hoggin', but, really, you find this to be funny? I cannot believe you didn't make it on the comedy circuit!!!! You are so freakin' funny!!!! Your jokes are so clever and hilarious!
I feel it's probably worth pointing out that I have a friend who knows and works with Andy Goldsworthy, and she thought that he would likely find these pictures amusing. It's entirely possible he's seen them already.
Not certain if some of the comments would go down so well.
I bet Mr Goldsworthy's made a penis out of leaves in his time. Or perhaps a vagina made of pebbles.
I'd never heard of him before this thread but his followers have put me off wanting to find out more.
No, please don't let them spoil it. Goldsworthy's work is stunning, beautiful - well worth checking out.
OK mat : )
Like Twiglet, I'd never heard of him before. Reading the comments, I wasn't too impressed by his fans. Thanks for the link though, Mat. His work is evocative and intriguing.
Superbness! (Be damned funny if Andy used some of his own pooh and spelt out Mat.)
i loved the way you reacted to all these so called Andy's "fans". you stayed calm and dealt with them nicely. after a few dozens of not very nice comments, i was expecting cusses and capital letters from you. and when you said "no, please don't let them spoil it" i laughed my head off. obviously these people are not successfully defending andy goldsworthy at all. anyways liked your work mat. keep it up! :)
also, this is the first time i've ever seen anybody pointing out the 'you're not your' thing. i've been annoyed by this but never had the guts to point it out.
Ugh. The Google image search really does lead me down idiotic roads every once in a while.
You do realize that Andy Goldsworthy's work consists of much than just configuring leaves into cusswords, right? He is a planner, a visionary, and a man who has great respect for the natural world.
I hope you're about fifteen years old or so. If so, I'll give you a pass based on youth-based ignorance. If not, you're pathetic.
You know what was most interesting about doing this?
Just how hard it was. Even to produce something so simple, such a pale shadow of the artworks I love so much, was incredibly difficult. Each of these pictures took a lot longer to set up than you might imagine. The simple act of looking through some leaves to find ones which could sit next to each other showed me just how much variation one tree could produce on the same theme, how much the effects of sun and rain, wind and decay could change something from it's neighbour.
Getting hands on gave me a whole new level of respect for Goldsworthy, and his work, something I haven't got in the many years of just looking I've done.
dude this is epic thanks for the entertainment p.s those people whingeing need to get their heads out of peoples arses and get a sense of humor... FACT
peace out brahhhhh xD
If it brought a smile to your face and a little giggle under your breath, like it did me, then this is a good thing folks..lets all lighten up!.
Listen, I understand if you think it is fun to parody artists, but you sir, have gone too far.
Come on man! even Andy would have to get a chuckle out of this.
Just reminds me of what I've always said: There's nothing so beautiful that some idiot somewhere doesn't want to ruin it.
omg after hours of homework having to research this guy, this is the only thing to make me laugh I LOVE YOU
I love the way this has run and run. I'm still not sure if Mat is a visionary or history's greatest monster.
neither.. he is irrelevant... these images are irrelevant
this is just a silly/amusing internet spoof... totally unworthy of this much attention...
I love Andy... but I was looking for pics and this made me crack. Up. It's funny!
...I still love Andy Goldsworthy... just it was a break from doing hours of resaerch for a stupid brochure I have to make.
people take temselves to seriously. what a bunch of bores. goldsworthy=greatness. potty humor=goodness. wonder how many of the dumbasses that are freaking out over this are products of higher education. 'TARDS...
wow. the more comment i read, the more that i am convinced that YOU ARE ALL TARDZ.
leaves leaving live living leave life
And it still continues to raise a remark, well done mat :D
(P) what's this?
