The Stillness of Colours



The Stillness of Colours Through A Visionary Eye

The sculptor Alison Wilding talks about a psychological hill which she has to get over with each piece of work. This impasse, she says, is closely followed by a feeling of elation and invincibility.


For me, when a piece is going well,  I enter into a very still and effortless zone of contentment and absorption. Alison describes the feeling as one of flying, for me it is more akin to floating. A subtle difference, perhaps, which has something to do with stillness and speed, direction and flow. Flying or floating, water or air, the creative current is buoyant and magical.
