More important than roast rabbit?

Kiga Koyata, from ’13 Assassins’ by Takashi Miike.

 

henry moore worked from nature – small sketches drawing from bones, stones, people and landscape

[not very fashionable.]

not all by the bizarre number of pieces of work he had scaled up deserved it – probably very few of them deserved it. at pery green the landscaping doesn’t help; there being a determined eradication of ‘wild’ so the savagery & weirdness that moore himself brought out in his work cannot harmonise with the landscape. becoming more eccentric detritus divorced from their surroundings – art objects.

it is wonderful to see his workshops – full of his small models, and the objects of inspiration; scattered about in personable, functional outbuildings. the countryside around is beautiful.
