More Info

Haines Gallery proudly presents Drawing Water Standing Still, a solo exhibition of recent films and photographs by acclaimed British land artist Andy Goldsworthy. Goldsworthy’s first solo show at Haines Gallery in seven years, Drawing Water Standing Still marks the artist’s return to a city that has long played an important role in his creative development.

Working with natural materials such as dust, rock, ice, water, and kelp, Goldsworthy is well-known for creating ephemeral moments of striking formal beauty that often originate from and illuminate the inherent character of the local site. The artist’s latest recent single- and multi-panel photographs often reflect transformations that have taken place over time, in both the natural and built environment. Drawing Water Standing Still also features several new videos, all on view for the first time on the West Coast. While video works are an integral part of Goldworthy’s oeuvre, this is the first time that they comprise such a significant part an exhibition at the gallery, signaling a subtle transformation in the artist’s practice.

The exhibition Drawing Water Standing Still is being present¬ed in tandem with Leaning into the Wind, a new, full-length documentary film exploring Goldsworthy’s practice, which made its world premiere at the San Francisco International Film Festival this April.

Haines Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.
