Depicting the magical relationship between art and nature while painting a visually intoxicating portrait of artist Andy Goldsworthy, RIVERS AND TIDES follows the bohemian free spirit all over the world as he demonstrates and discusses his creative process and artistic philosophies. From his long-winding rock walls and icicle sculptures to his interlocking leaf chains and multicolored pools of flowers, Goldsworthy’s painstakingly intricate masterpieces are made entirely of materials found in Mother Nature – an unpredictable “critic” who threatens and often succeeds in destroying his art, sometimes before it is even finished. RIVERS AND TIDES is a mesmerizing cinematic experience that helps us to appreciate design and nature in new and enchanting ways
