And so should we.
I watched this terrific documentary (available on Amazon prime) about the sculptor Elizabeth King. Similar to the Bill Cunningham documentary I wrote about and loved, it’s all about an artist’s process and how one is called to something. Combining intimate figurative sculpture, stop frame animation and the ritual of theater is her vocation. Clearly she’s not doing it for money or accolades. Even her choice of materials is not “efficient.” But it’s what she sees in her head and is compelled to make. Watching her process is riveting.
My favorite part occurs at the end. She stops mid-sentence when talking about her work to observe a Red-tailed Hawk flying above. Her joy at seeing it is infections and talk about being in the moment!
