"Whatever the subject I try to get myself out of the way so that the truth of that subject can come through me into the work. As Brancusi said: It's not difficult to make a work of art. The difficulty lies in being in the right state to do it."
Artist Maggi Hambling
This quote comes from a book, The Aldeburgh Scallop, which charts the making of Hambling's wonderful piece, Scallop, that sits on Aldeburgh beach.
If you’ve never seen Scallop you can check out my photos of it, here.
