The Vertigo of Eros by Roberto Matta, 1944. Oil on canvas, 6.5’ x 8.3’. The Museum of Modern Art.

from MOMA:

In the late 1930s and early 1940s Matta had produced works he called “inscapes,” imaginary landscapes that he imagined as projections of psychological states. The Vertigo of Eros evokes an infinite space that suggests both the depths of the psyche and the vastness of the universe.

The Windhover

I caught this morning morning’s minion, king-
dom of daylight’s dauphin, dapple-dawn-drawn Falcon, in his riding 
Of the rolling level underneath him steady air, and striding 
High there, how he rung upon the rein of a wimpling wing 
In his ecstasy! then off, off forth on swing, 
As a skate’s heel sweeps smooth on a bow-bend: the hurl and gliding 
Rebuffed the big wind. My heart in hiding 
Stirred for a bird,—the achieve of, the mastery of the thing! 

Brute beauty and valour and act, oh, air, pride, plume, here 
Buckle! AND the fire that breaks from thee then, a billion 
Times told lovelier, more dangerous, O my chevalier! 

No wonder of it: sheer plod makes plough down sillion 
Shine, and blue-bleak embers, ah my dear, 
Fall, gall themselves, and gash gold-vermillion.

Gerard Manley Hopkins 1918

Inscape By Stateless 

We wake with our forms all tangled up

Frozen in silence, no sound save breathing
I can feel your skin on my skin
How did it get so cold in here?

Like tears we fall on to the ice
We lay entangled, ice against skin


Inscapes: In visual arts, usually conveys some notion of representing the artist’s psyche as a kind of interior landscape. The word inscape can therefore be read as a kind of portmanteau, combining interior (or inward) with landscape.

My own analysis on Naruto 698

Did you see that change in Sasuke’s eye before trying to kill Naruto?

He hesitated. And he closed his Sharingan so that moment won’t impregnate in his mind, because the sight of Naruto’s death would cause him pain, Naruto being his family. 

We know that Sharingan is named also ”Copy Wheel Eye” and ”The Eye that reflects the heart” and grants the user the ability to copy and memorise everything.

And Naruto saw the change in his eyes (heart) and he knew that is not too late to save him from darkness.  ”That gaze is inscapable” - on the first page form Naruto 698

And that’s why Sasuke is smiling. He’s glad that he lost, that he didn’t kill Naruto. He’s glad because he didn’t lose any important person (like Itachi). Maybe he knew from the begginning that Naruto will win, that he couldn’t do it.

He didn’t want this to happen again. Because he loved Itachi and he loves Naruto. And for him, they represent his family.
