Carolyn Blake creates an event in every day is in a sense to recognise that even the everydayness – the daily activities of living and functioning are a continuum. These can often be easily overlooked, however, everything has humanity and memory. These small moments in the everydayness of our lives are opportunities to reflect on and through photography captures something special in a millisecond, the painter has the time to dwell, intervene and then respond and with a lifetime of knowledge and historical references. Blake soaks up the atmosphere and the event of making a painting with paint gives me permission to create interventions to let go and enjoy.
