What is it about a particular work of art that seizes your attention? That holds your gaze then pulls you back time and time again?

In LOOK THIS WAY seventeen writers - novelists, poets, essayists, a lyricist, a dramatist, a comic book writer and artists - answer these seemingly straightforward questions, each writing on a New Zealand artist of their choice. They tell stories, find treasures and make connections but above all they look hard at the art works and engage with artists, while inviting the reader to share their perspective. Their responses show how works of art can play upon the senses, the imagination and the memory of the viewer.

Here we encounter the 'weird loveliness' of Tony de Lautour's roughed-up colonial landscapes as described by Mark Williams; the 'carnivalesque biology' of early works by Bill Hammond as seen by Ian Wedde; the roaring decibel level of a John Reynolds painting as seen - and heard - by poet Anne Kennedy; and a host of other birds and beasts, narratives, reminiscences, evolving impressions and new readings.
