Tess has led a series of discussions on the Philosophy of Art over the last year or so. With a solid background in the subject Tess leads us expertly through the big ideas in Aesthetics enabling us to question our own beliefs in the meaning of art and the making of it.
In this group we will discuss some of the main philosophical theories of the sublime in the writings of (amongst others) Burke and Kant and also look at how artists past and present have captured the concept of the sublime in their work. This is a wonderful topic and hugely relevant to both the creation and appreciation of art.
These discussions are very informal and inclusive. Attendees are obliged to read the notes in advance so as to be able to bring their own ideas to the evening.

“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.” – Aristotle
