Overview

The articles collected in this volume have been selected and edited by Scott Eastham from over twenty years of Eric Wesselow's lectures and writings. They center on art and spirituality but also encompass linguistics, philosophy, communication studies, and education. In these essays, Wesselow demonstrates an uncanny capacity for allowing the reader to witness the processes of art from the inside. He lets us stand by him as he takes in hand various materials and attends carefully not only to what he can do with them, but to what they do to him and what there is to learn from each. Eric Wesselow shows us that the visionary dimension of art brings us not a vision of some other world, but a reawakening of the artist in each of us, graced with the gift of seeing this very world in all its radiance.
