With foundations rooted in a search for a contemporary sublime based on traditional aesthetics and the psychological theory of Escape, this body of work takes a deeply personal approach to the role of the female artist existing within, yet desiring to escape from, the domestic space. Taking an experimental approach and focusing on the materiality of the photographic medium as methodology, the resulting narrative follows the ebbs and flows of such a reality. A craving to escape domesticity, with an ever-increasing inclination to summit the mountain; this is metaphor in practice. Experience in the landscape provides an endless sum of configurations and potential endings to the chronologies produced by our minds; where the infinitude of the sublime authentically exists.
