CELIA PAUL AND OLIVIA LAING IN CONVERSATION

391

Dearest Gwen, I know this letter to you is an artifice. I know you are dead and that I’m alive and that no usual communication is possible between us but, as my mother used to say, “Time is a strange substance” and who knows really, with our time-bound comprehension of the world, whether there might be some channel by which we can speak to each other, if we only knew how.Celia Paul*

 

Join Paul and Olivia Laing for a conversation about the artist’s new book LETTERS TO GWEN JOHN, a communication across time with the late Welsh portraitist. See link below for details.
