Transformations into the Sublime

Aesthetica, September 9, 2016

'We are flooded by talk about “the cutting edge.” I believe that work in any medium, all types of work, can be at that edge. It is not about using new materials; rather it is about pushing the materials and forms you are using to their limits. Extending the frontiers of the way you have chosen to work – as a painter, as a sculptor, as a poet or writer. It is about knowing the tools and techniques, about honouring the history and tradition, and then by infusing the energy and originality of your own into the work, transforming it and extending it into another sphere.'
