The interview starts at approximately 48:50
This week on Forum, we will be talking to Jeremy Blincoe, an artist whose multifaceted practice encompasses, photography, sculpture, drawing, video and animation.
Jeremy is a visual storyteller whose purpose is not to reflect the world we see around us, but to explore the inner world of the mind of individuals, the community, and the shared imagination of the group.
Like peeling the layers of skin from an onion, it is a slow process of gradual steps as Jeremy digs deeper into imaginative psychological spaces.
While Jeremy’s work often springs from the personal, in the process of becoming an artwork, the content becomes reformed in a mythic visual language, that others can share.
‘If these are myths, in that they use narrative to describe possible ways of thinking about the world, they are not fables or parables; they do not have a simple moral lesson they seek to impart. Each visual story remains open, inviting viewers to journey into the mythic space and find, perhaps, their own personal answers or empathic resonance.’ (Excerpt, ‘The Honest Mythmaker’, PhotoWorld China interview by Dr Alasdair Foster).
In 2006 having completed a degree in Photography at Massey University in New Zealand, Jeremy has since held fifteen solo exhibitions including Korea, Switzerland, and New Zealand. He has won prestigious prizes including the Brisbane Art Prize (2017), Fisher Ghost Arts Prize (2017), Kaipara Wallace Arts Trust Award (2016), and has work in the collection of Gippsland Art Gallery.
Current exhibition. ‘Nocturne’, with Natalie Ryan at the Stockroom, 98 Piper Street, Kyneton.
