Observations of the Beautiful
and Sublime

The sheltered locations and expansive views of these West-Coast landscapes come to serve as methaphores in this body of work. They form the basis to explore notions of aesthetic phenomena such as the Beautiful and the Sublime.The concept of beauty here resonates with the german romanticist idea of harmony in a multiplicity of things. The Sublime maintains its contradictory sense in a range of meanings; from awe-inspiring and powerful to ungraspable and unimaginable.
