Simon Callery and involving the viewer
moreSC: Well, it is possible to pick out literal aspects and I don’t really mind that too much. More important to recognize is that the physical qualities of the painting involve the viewer in a physical encounter. We do not just understand these works visually, we also need to understand them bodily. It is an intention of the work that we can get involved with all our senses and not just the eye, much like we do in landscape.
