Multimedia artist Tamlin Blake explores the boundaries between fine art and what have been considered the more domesticated artforms of weaving, sewing and beading. She constantly questions the expectations of and boundaries between medium and concept.
Her current body of work, ‘Tapestry Sketches: 40 Degrees in the Shade’, examines the avenues available for artistic spontaneity in the generally time-consuming process of weaving, and also reflects on life during summer in the drought-stricken Riebeek Valley.
Tamlin has had eight solo exhibitions, the most recent at Circa on Jellicoe in Johannesburg. She has exhibited in group shows nationally and internationally, and her work can be found in various public and corporate collections.
Tamlin holds a Masters in fine art from the University of Stellenbosch.
