Interview with Tom Blake
'the churchie' 2020 finalist
2 December 2020
Join Tom Blake, finalist in the churchie emerging art prize 2020, in conversation with exhibition curator Talia Smith, exploring the themes and ideas embedded within his practice.
Tom Blake’s solo and collaborative practice contemplates the psychological, architectural, and technological frameworks that surround us through fragmented moments, looped imagery, and recurring motifs. Drawing is the starting point for many of Blake’s works, over time becoming fragmented, transposed, and re-composed.
Blake has exhibited in Australia, Japan, and Italy, been a finalist in Fremantle Arts Centre (FAC) Print Award, the Fisher’s Ghost Art Award, the CLIP Award, The Blake Prize, and has been awarded a Clitheroe Foundation Emerging Sculptor Mentorship. Blake’s work has been exhibited at Artspace, AGWA, FAC, Perth Institute of Contemporary Art (PICA), Murray Art Museum Albury, c3 Contemporary Artspace, Firstdraft, and KNULP. Blake is also part of momo doto, an ongoing collaboration with Dominique Chen.
