upward toward the head

James Elkins, from Pictures and Tears:

I love history, and I wouldn’t give up any of its richness. But paintings can also work differently, in a way that isn’t easily put into words, that slides in and out of awareness, that seems to work upward toward the head from somewhere down below:a way that changes the temperature of your thinking instead of altering what yousay. That other kind of experience can tunnel into your thoughts and bring tears to your eyes.

Here, here.
