Sandra Guy’s arts practice has, for many years, focused on examining the notion of the ‘sublime’ as it relates to her experiences of the landscapes of Regional NSW. Sandra has lived and worked in the Blue Mountains, the Snowy Mountains, the Mid-North Coast and the Northern Rivers of NSW, where she currently reside. Sandra has also found inspiration in the vast desert landscapes of Broken Hill.
Prior to moving to the Northern Rivers 10 years ago, Sandra Guy’s artwork was principally inspired by the ‘sublime’ in the natural environment and rural landscapes held little interest or power. However, since living in Northern Rivers, what was initially rejected as subject matter for her artwork became familiar, inspiring, surprising, intriguing and contrary to previous thought, powerful and often ‘sublime’.
Sandra Guy’s arts practice has subsequently focussed on a re-examination of the nineteenth century Romantic aesthetic notion which divides the world into categories: the ‘sublime’, the ‘picturesque’ and the ‘pastoral’. For the Romantics, the ‘sublime’ was wild, vast, powerful, inspiring awe and terror, but was differentiated from a pastoral landscape. How Sandra views the landscape of the Northern Rivers is a very personal experience and this experience led her to question these notions and conclude that ‘sublime’ moments can be experienced in any environment.
