Blaise Thompson
Opening Hours

Doors, caves, letterboxes, windows & pockets.  Portals of every kind provide the inspiration for new work by local artist Blaise Thompson.

Exploiting images from his collection of drawings, photographs & Instagram account @mereportals,  Blaise has produced a collection of sumptuous paintings on canvas. Sometimes the origin or starting point is clear & at other times less so.  Colour & texture are created through a mixture of working methods, including collage & pochoir. Working for many years as an illustrator has given him a strong affection for graphic symbols & typography. “A lot of my painting is a reaction to my illustration work” says Blaise, “I want the surfaces to move & change when you pass. Not be flat & still.”
