Jeremy Blincoe: embody kinship through enigmatic photographs and carved watery sculptures. His latest work explores the natural forms of trees., “I draw and map the tree with my camera, its leaves, branches, bark, roots and its entanglement with the broader ecology,” Blincoe states. “I then moved to mimesis, tuning my body and the camera into the trembling of its leaves with the morning breeze. The camera has become an intermediary to a mode of encounter with another being. Whilst the great numinous unknown of the tree remains present, the durational process has created an intimacy and kinship with the tree; and a widening of community that embraces it.” A New Zealand-born, Melbourne-based contemporary artist, Blincoe studied photography at Massey University in Wellington, followed by years working in advertising honing his craft. He completed his Masters of  Contemporary Art, VCA, in 2019. His recent solo exhibitions include 2019 Nocturne, Stockroom, Kyneton, Melbourne, (2019), Wander, OREX Gallery, Auckland, New Zealand (2018) and The Burden Of Tradition, Loiegruebe, Solothurn, Switzerland (2017). He is the recipient of the Fisher Ghost Arts Prize 2017 (Photography).
