Intuition, Matter Shifts, features prints and installations from artists Amanda Lee (USA) and Sharon Lindenfeld (UAE) who both make work that exemplifies the material manifestation of intuition. The artists use repetition, of pairings and variations, to create an infinite time space where ephemeral moments, future past and present all exist in the same moment. Using intuition, a personal bank of knowledge and information, manifests the information making matter from non-matter – each artist accomplishes this with different visual devices.
Amanda bases the format of her minimal pieces on sacred texts and architectural elements. She uses these formats to allude to how rational knowledge is traditionally valued and transferred. Her photographs are purposefully ‘low-fi’, hand printed with visible halftones or noisy images and veiled with calm, light, colors infused with gestures, shine, and projected video. The prints posit how to transfer to a manifestation of intuition verses a documentation of rational knowledge.
Sharon’s large-scale prints enlarge small details from one to form the basis of the next, the knowledge of the first piece informing the state of the second. Deeply abstracted spaces allow for landscapes to emerge and transform as a direct result of her intuitive process. The prints convey emotions open to interpretation: sadness, contemplation, awe, calm, solitude, hope, or a sense of searching.
