Known and Strange Things

Stephen Carter

In a collection of essays by Teju Cole called 'Known and Strange Things' and writing about W.G.Sebald he says : -

"Sebald had a special love for paintings; they are half object, half window into another world."

This simple observation resonates with me and while it might be applied to painting generally - I think it has a very particular bearing on my approach to painting.
