The Other

“Art has something to do with the achievement of stillness in the midst of chaos. A stillness which characterizes prayer, too, in the eye of the storm… Art has something to do with an arrest of attention in the midst of distraction.” 

 

Saul Bellow (The Nobel Prize in Literature 1976, no date)

The Gap 2020 Digital Gif

Midsummers night 2020 something caught my eye as I looked over the water, through the trees to the buildings beyond. Heavily scented night air carried the sound of the bells as they chimed 9 o'clock.

I am interested in the way an image may transport you back to a time and place that has passed. It is not your memory if you were not there, but you experience it and it leaves you changed. You have acquired something, not exactly knowledge but a sort of knowing.
