Shades of the Sublime & Beautiful
Shades of the Sublime & Beautiful explores issues of sublimity and beauty, contemplates the aesthetic and the transcendent, and examines nature and the artificial/made. From the small to the large, from the soothing aesthetics of shape and form through to what constitutes ‘ugliness’ or ‘terror’, it challenges our preconceptions and often finds the beautiful in the ugly, the ugly in the beautiful, or calm in the tempest, and tempest in the more benign moments.
