Space and Place

T Street re-opens to the public with Carolyn Blake's solo show.

“We move constantly in and out of our own space and non-space (trains, buses railway stations etc) and even when we are in those non-spaces, we bring to them our own presence.  We soak up their atmosphere, even create our own corners of containment within them and they momentarily become ours.  These moments of recalled memory are held frozen in the pigment and medium.” Blake 2020

 

Painter Carolyn Blake lives and works in Birmingham.  Blake evokes a sense of place within the compositions she recreates from her travels. Capturing her scenes with her camera or smartphone, Carolyn works on composition that detaches itself from the detail of the entire scene and focuses on retelling the memory of the moment.
