"An Artist Is Like God." Nigel Goodwin Podcast: Live At Hales Segment 1 of 3
Filmmaker Ingmar Bergman is known for his explorations of disbelief in film. Yet recently Bergman wrote the following. "Art lost its basic creative drive the moment it was separated from worship. It severed an umbilical cord and now lives its own sterile life, generating and degenerating itself. In former days, the artist remained unknown and his work was to the glory of God. He lived and died without being more or less important than other artisans: eternal values, immortality and masterpiece were terms not applicable in his case. The ability to create was a gift. In such a world flourished vulnerable and natural humility." In this podcast we discuss "An Artist is like God," with Nigel Goodwin. Nigel's career as an actor started after graduating from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, famous for graduates Laurence Olivier, Albert Finney and many more. His career was interrupted by an encounter with God, which shaped his lifelong pursuit of understanding how God and art relate.
