Sublime Landscape, 2018
This waterless lithograph print continues the exploration of a recurring motif which has been prevalent in my 2-dimensional work since arriving in Scotland. Every iteration sees an abstracted image reminiscent of the solidity of the landscape juxtaposed with impermanence as the visual weight dissipates into the atmosphere.
This duality of solid and fluid speaks to my interpretation of the feeling of being enveloped by the landscape. I believe this feeling is the best expression of the concept of sublime.
However, to be enveloped is not to be overwhelmed by what surrounds you, instead it is deeply tied to the concept of interconnectedness. It is not about feeling small and insignificant, but to feel a deep and boundless connection to the universe and everything in it.
