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.
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.
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.
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.
