In The art that made me, artists discuss works in the Art Gallery of NSW collection that either inspire, influence or simply delight them. This selection by Khaled Sabsabi first appeared in Look – the Gallery’s members magazine.
‘These speak to me because I’m not an art historian,’ says Sydney artist Khaled Sabsabi of his favourite AGNSW collection works. ‘I’m not an academic, or a theorist, or a critic in any way. It’s about finding similarities and inspiration or parallels with your own practice. I can see my work in Mona’s work. I can see my work in Hossein’s work, and Mr Bennett’s work, and Brook’s work. And I hope that they would feel the same way as well.’
