Kant's Sublime Shortlisted

It has been a good year so far for Kant's Sublime as it was shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and National Open Art Competition.

The Kant's Sublime was inspired by a lecture. Studying extracts from The Critique of Judgement by German Philosopher Kant I was fascinated by his theories on art; ways of seeing, interior and exterior mapping in the mind. 

I became transfixed by the marks on the edges of the photocopied lecture handouts, making copies of these copies. I cut them up, collaged them and photographed them over again.

A simple photocopy sent me thinking about Kant’s philosophies in the everyday. These prints are a visual outcome of his theories on perception. Hundreds of years later his thoughts have both informed and become part of my landscape.
