Artist of the Day- Lynn Chadwick (click on image to see more)

Lynn Chadwick is a well known British artist.I love what he says about his process. It seems really honest and direct.

“I have never really been attracted towards clay as a material to work with because it’s too nebulous to me and it’s too soft. I can’t think of any shape that clay ought to be, I mean it can be any shape therefore I don’t know what to do with it. Whereas , if I make my constructions which are made out of iron and straight lines, I can do a drawing, a three-dimensional drawing, in this material, which has a very definite shape” Lynn Chadwick, British Library National Sound Archive, 1995.
