Art is something that we can see and touch. It can also reveal to us the touch of God.
In this interview with Fr. Mike, Joseph Aspell reveals that to him art is part of life. It lifts his mind and heart to God and so he becomes good friends with this God. He calls the development of his artistic ability a “personal emergency”. He had to use this gift. Again, for him, life stops or can’t continue unless he uses this gift of art. Art opens up the door to mystery in many ways.
He tells the story of a sculpture he did for a church, entitled Mary, Seat of Wisdom.
We get an insight into this man who creates sacred art .This interview gives a glimpse into the heart of “authentic” spirit of the artist.
