Michelle Manley Paints the Sublime

Michelle Manley paints sweeping landscapes where the sky, rather than the land, is the focus. Huge, billowing clouds circle above like large predators, eager to devour the Earth below as the storm ensues. Manley is interested in the extreme shifts in the environment as a result of climate change. Her work depicts the sublime aspects of nature, recreating the sensation of realizing one's smallness in comparison to the universe. Take a look at some of Michelle Manley's work after the jump.
