'If you study a great work of art, you'll probably find the artist was a kind of genius. And geniuses are different to you and me. So let's have no talk of temperamental, self-absorbed and petulant babies. Being a good artist is the toughest job you could pick, and you have to be a little nuts to take it on. I love them all.' (Charles Saatchi)

Giving Shape to a Secret

I am reading 'Memories, Dreams, Reflections' by C.G. Jung at the moment. One of his early childhood memories is having made a little wooden figure with a stone. He calls this a first attempt to give shape to a secret.

I can really relate to this. When I am making a sculpture I feel I am giving shape to an idea. The 3D form can express concepts succinctly where mere words would fail to convey them. The idea becomes manifest.
