Product story

Tess Jaray also reflects on the questions and preferences that motivate her own practice - how we apprehend beauty and the qualities of particular colours - returning often to the idea that artists are looking for patterns to make sense of the world. Jaray shares this modernist sensibility with the writer W.G. Sebald, who features in often in this collection and whose presence is felt throughout. In these essays Jaray approaches the mysteries of making art - where it comes from and what happens when we look at it, in our heads and in our hearts. 21.5 x 16.5cm, 126 pages, 42 illustrations.
