Out of Time

Out of Time was the first work started for the research and the last one to be completed. Over the course of its development, it became clear that the initial compositions were, like The Shoggoth and partly in homage to Lovecraft’s baroque writing style, too complex, overwrought, and literal, none of which seemed to facilitate the engendering of the Sublime. Similarly, the complex layering of textures, images, symbols, and painted elements detracted from a Sublime encounter because they are as barriers to the initial confrontation between the viewer and the immeasurable.
