O Circle

Clip from Rivers and Tides documentary about artist Andy Goldsworthy

I was watching this film again tonight and I remembered how much his art, and his process, influenced mine. He mostly works with his hands and without tools (the odd knife or hammer is sometimes used to work with tough plants like bracken or media like stone), and it reminded me of why I use my fingers instead of brushes.

I also felt a kinship with his fascination for circles and cycles, for the rhythm and flow of life.

The film is very meditative. I enjoyed it thoroughly, like a warm pot of tea.
