SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- Haines Gallery presents Incidental Objects, an exhibition exploring the conceptual process of British installation artist Andy Goldsworthy. Though popularly known for his ephemeral pieces that disappear over time, Goldsworthy has dedicated a large percentage of his focus toward the completion of over 120 commissioned, permanent installations over the past 25 years. For the artist, these permanent and temporary works function symbiotically, with temporary or experimental works often aiding in the development or realization of these commissions. Goldsworthy’s exhibition at Haines Gallery highlights some of these “incidental” works, providing a rare view into the conceptual nature of the artist’s process. Works in the exhibition include proposal drawings for several permanent commissions, including Spire (a recently completed work in the Presidio Park of San Francisco), Wood Line
