Book Buzzin'--Art and Intuition

Art and Intuition: Borderlines and Boundaries: Reflections and Refractions of the Gaze in Painting Today by Pat Paxson. I work with the amazing Pat and thought her book looked interesting. Here's a blurb and link to her blog. Let me know what you think!

What is intuition, where does it come from, how does it interact with  making and viewing art, how can it be encouraged? These are questions raised by Pat Paxson. She uses ideas of Sigmund Freud,  Jacques Lacan, Anton Ehrenzweig and others,  braiding them together so that  they dovetail in a surprising and informative manner. This results in  helpful ideas for encouraging the emergence of intuition, that intriguing  but invisible mental process.
