Barbara Hepworth's Spiritual Vitality

I've been staying a stone's throw from Barbara Hepworth's studio and museum in St Ives. So, before the crowds arrive each morning, I slip alone into her extraordinary garden - a captivating blend of sculpture and exotic planting. Her working spaces lie undisturbed as if she has just popped out for a moment to fetch milk for morning tea, or perhaps in her case a packet of cigarettes. The early morning light in St Ives is clear and full of promise, with a hint of the as yet unknown mystery of the day ahead. I find the garden, most unexpectedly, has a similar effect on me as a monastic retreat place. It feels serene, creative, authentic, purposefully walled in to encase the arena of sacred work
