Romanticism and the Sublime
Au Centre de la Terre I, Nadege Meriau, 2011
Romanticism emerged in the late 18th and early 19th century in reaction to academic art's rigidity and the Enlightenment's cerebral outlook, with artists communicating their emotional response to the world. Artists continue to create works that engage with the natural world’s beauty through works which engender heightened responses or draw attention to smaller details, and that reflects the awe it stirs as well as works which could provide viewers with transcendental experiences. Participants include Ambrosine Allen, Mohammed Qasim Ashfaq, Gordon Cheung, Susan Derges, Nicolas Feldmeyer Calum Mclure, Marten Lange and Nadege Meriau.
