Amy Brookes is a 3rd year student, studying Fine Art within Manchester School of Art. She explores contemporary ideas of the sublime within nature, which captures a romantic sensation of infinite space and our insignificance within the universe. She creates colourful, ephemeral paintings that bring the external world into the gallery space, giving the illusion of depth to create windows into other realms. These ideas are produced by thoughts of society’s unsatisfactory, mediated experiences of nature due to our dependence on technology. Within her art practice, she is attracted to the use of colour, light and energy to create gaseous compositions.
