Locating the sentiment of sublimity
Jennifer Robin Caras
$3,750.00


Artist statement: At what point do we leave space −aesthetic detachment, also inadequacy− for insurmountable bound-boundless, shape-shapeless, phenomenological events surpassing empirical experience indistinguishable from compensatory natural cycles, fluxes, aftershock; accrued echo results of humanity’s piracy of ecosystems? May we capture a presentiment of ulterior consequence? What form of mediation of immediacy arises? Irrevocable, ethically attainable in a sensuous way? An agitating imperative to act upon?

Artist statement: My interest in photography stared at a young age when I first borrowed my sisters Kodak Brownie camera. I found I could tell a story with photos and photos could tell me a story. What joy! While working at the Worcester Art Museum, I had the pleasure of walking among the "masters" which couldn't help but awaken my creative juices. Photography became my outlet for creativity.
