Karsten writes: "Weight's paintings are captivating for many reasons - his color sense is perfectly in tune with his mysterious imagery, his realism is modified by the emotions of fear and anguish, and his compositions reveal a deep understanding of 2-d image structure... It isn't mastery over materials that keeps me looking at Weight’s work though - it's his crazy, compelling, haunted voice, and how he gives us a frank look at the unknowable world of individual emotional lives."
Paul Behnke posts an image gallery of paintings by British artist Carel Weight (1908-1997). According to the Tate Collection "[Weight] painted landscapes and portraits, but much of his work captured a mood of melancholia, evident in the mysterious presences in his ghost paintings set in the unassuming urban settings of west and south London most familiar to the artist."
