Intuition: The Photo Version

As insistent as I have been that this amazing exhibit, Intuition (which ends today after a six month run at Palazzo Fortuny in Venice) cannot be reasonably captured in either words or images, I can’t stop trying to share some traces of its magic.

There are a lot of images included here. This is a gesture that honors those friends who have insatiable eyes.

I hope you can find some moments that give you an inkling.

Note:
My previous post, Intuition and the Irrational Elsewhere, is a word-based introduction to this exhibit. Also, a thank you to my son Bryce Aragon who contributed some of his photos to this trove.

  1. Thanks so much for your beautiful words in your earlier post and your stunning photos in this post. I would have also spontaneously gone to Venice to see this show if I’d known of it earlier. What an experience! The work in such a setting is so inspirational. I think it would be a transforming experience.

      Thank you Janice. I so appreciate your words. Just last week I read a post by you that I thought was very well done. Glad we are connected.

    Otherworldly, magnetic, inspirational, this exhibition reminds me strongly of ‘Clew’, your show at Philips Exeter Academy last January. I have no doubt that your work from that show would have been at home among the wonderful paintings and objects at the Palazzo Fortuny.

      Thalassa, that is what struck me immediately and made the trip to Venice so necessary. Thank you for sensing that as well.

    More wow! And more for “insatiable eyes.” Deborah, I always look forward to quiet time to read — and think about — your writing. A gift beyond your paintings.

    Do you know the artist of the “screen” of clounds

      I went through the catalog and through my photos but I cannot find the name of the artist who did those “screens” of clouds. I’ll check with a few other friends who were there and see if they wrote it down. Thanks for your comments!
