I am a UK based artist and a true believer in Iain McGilchrist's evidence - based exposition of the connection of our brain structure, the modern mind and the world it creates.
I recommend Rhonda Leiberman reads the book; if she does, she might be a little less flip, be more charitable towards Iain McGilchrist's take on art and understand the scale of his project.
Few people are able and/or in a position to write a book of this breadth and I admire his courage to specifically address so many areas of human activity. The book encourages you to join dots and revisit your own understanding and though some areas are a little shaky (abstraction is summed up too briefly and lacks visual understanding) he presents us with a view of the world (of which art is a small part) that is profound and right under our noses.
The first paragraph of the previous article by Katy Siegel (“now what?”) was a priceless, spot-on observation of the world art has become. It seemed as though she has read the book, which I suggest everyone should
- it changes everything.
