Description

Natural Wonders: the Sublime in Contemporary Art will showcase the work of thirteen American artists who engage nature in all its fierce magnificence.  Beyond just highlighting nature’s beauty, the featured artists—Suzanne Anker, Lauren Fensterstock, Patrick Jacobs, Maya Lin, Roxy Paine, Miljohn Ruperto & Ulrik Heltoft, Diana Thater, Jennifer Trask, Mark Tribe, Kathleen Vance, T.J. Wilcox, and Dustin Yellin—also hint at the more disquieting aspects of the natural world. As such, the works in this exhibition can be viewed as a type of neo-sublime, mixing the beautiful and terrifying to produce awe in the beholder in accord with tenets of eighteenth-century philosopher Edmund Burke.  And not unlike nineteenth-century sublime landscapes of the Hudson River School or the Romantic era, these recent works conjure the raw power and unruliness of nature along with its harmonious effects—a state at once captivating and unsettling.  Indeed, a menace can be found lurking within most of the work in Natural Wonders, and this danger often stems from human intervention. The exhibition is organized by Brandywine River Museum of Art.  Suzanne Ramljak is the guest curator.
