it was amazing
Read in November, 2010

I really liked this book. It was somewhat hypnotic - inviting the reader into what we might imagine was the transcendental state of the artist at work. Clarice Beckett was interested in theosophy and transcendentalism and it is not a far stretch to imagine her using altered states in her creative process. This is certainly how I feel when I look at her paintings. The book is also funny and observant and very moving. I wished it was longer, but that's the power of minimalism - to leave a sense of yearning.
