From the Sublime to the Concrete
From the Sublime to the Concrete is an exhibition about the landscape. It is the outcome of a conversation with the visual artist Derrick Guild, which led to the invitation to curate a show for us. Guild sees landscape as poetic and intellectual environment, a paradigm for the creative experience from which the artist draws inspiration across media and subject. Today landscape continues to provide inspiration and current Academicians are inevitably included in an exhibition which celebrates a genre which extends beyond the physical into the metaphysical.
