As a way of offering a new interpretation of Garicault's art I worked on a largely neglected area of his oeuvre - his paintings of horses (an archetypal Romantic theme).For the exhibition, 'The Ink Jetty' I exhibited, in collaboration with Catherine Yass, a colour photograph 'Horse's Rear; After Garicault'; informed by my reading of Garicault's 'Les Croupes'. In this way the image helped disseminate my understanding of Garicault's work while also providing an historical frame to a contemporary image.

Continental aesthetics and philosophy from Kant to the present. Nietzsche and post-Nietzscheanism. The art of Géricault. Contemporary art and theory.
I am currently editing an anthology of writings by philosophers on aesthetics and art which assembles the primary sources referred to in my previous book 'Introducing Aesthetics' (Icon Books Ltd., 2007). This anthology is entitled, 'Philosophers on Art: From Kant to Postmodernism, A Critical Reader' (Columbia University press, ISBN 0-231-14094-0; 0-231-14095-9, due to be published in 2008). Both books focus upon Nietzsche's revaluation' or 'overcoming' of metaphysics and its implications for understanding subsequent Continental philosophy, aesthetics and writings about art. At the same time I am involved in ongoing research into the art of the French Romantic artist, Théodore Géricault. In this connection I am writing an article expanding upon my paper given at the Art Historians' Conference (2001) entitled 'Géricault, Fetishism and Abuse'.
