Procrastination Vs. Motivation

Artist & Sculptor:

Anna Gillespie

“Taste the Rain”

"We have to learn to love nature, to acknowledge we are part of it. This calls for a new, co-operative spirit to replace the old, exploitative relationship, which was the corollary of feeling separate from nature. Even speaking of ‘nature’ as something distinct from the human race suggests an artificial separation. We are all part of the natural world. Collecting beech nuts and acorns for sculptures, made me realize that every one is the same and yet different…just like us. Nature is so prolific.

"I feel I’ve got a long way to go personally in drawing closer to nature. Art for me is an approach to that, a way to fuse with where we have come from and what we rely on, what sustains us."

from: Somerset Life

"Taste the Rain is part of an on going series of work using material that has fallen from trees: acorns, beechnut casings, leaves, bark, sycamore keys," she tells us. "For this piece, I found the bark in a wood near my home in the south west of England, from a fallen tree. All these works try to express a moment of connection to nature and this particular piece is about trying to draw the viewer into recalling what it feels like to stand out in the rain and engage their senses."
