There’s always been a lot to admire about Tilda Swinton. And now there’s this as well. A wonderfully moving speech, about the light and dark of Art, and how it feeds the soul, how it lets us know we have souls, how in many ways, it is the stuff of life. Paintings, writing, music.
Discovering the landscape of a world inhabited by artists has been one of the miracles of my life — TILDA SWINTON
It’s a wonderful speech, made my eyes prickle in parts. I hope you like it.
Blog post giving the context of the speech, and the text of the speech itself.

She’s a fascinating woman. Love that she takes such a variety of roles. Did you see her in We Need to Talk About Kevin? Sensational.
She is, and I do too. And I did. Amazing. Love her unconventionality, and how she lives in the north of Scotland. Sometimes I think I’d like to live in the north of Scotland too.
