I have just started reading the book Art Objects, a collection of essays written by Jeanette Winterson about art. I can tell already this book will stimulate my mind, and give me a fresh perspective on all things art. The first essay is about learning to see the art object before you, how it takes time to see things fully and how said object can open the heart of it’s viewer. It reminds me of how little time I spend visiting real live galleries these days, and instead take in most of my “art viewing” via the internet, where my viewing time for things is less than a minute. Shame on me.
