Gail Jones Quotes: It Was Hard To Imagine The Icy Water

It Was Hard To Imagine The Icy Water Thawed And Re-sealing, Or The Sky Returning To A Lively Blue. She Had A Sense Of Contraction, Of Huddling Against The Weather. Later, It Figured In Her Mind As Stalinist Classicism, The Wind Tunnel Of The Vast And Inhuman Karl-Marx-Allee, And The Shapes Of People In Padded Jackets Bending Against The Cruel Air. A Scene From Eisenstein, Perhaps, With A Gelid Lens And The Special Effects Of Monumental Vision, Swollen By An Aerial View And Historical Misery. Black Outlines On White Snow, Impersonality, Extinguishment. Exaggeration Of This Kind Was Irresistible. In That Early, Fierce Cold, Berliners Coped Better.
