Event description

Description

Discover the mysterious and mythical world of Jeremy Blincoe at the latest Carlton Library Light Box Program exhibition. The Myth of Progress will be on display from 20 March - 20 September 2018.

“The photographic artist Jeremy Blincoe is a visual storyteller. His purpose is not to reflect the world we see around us, but to explore the interior world of the mind. The mind of the individual, but also the mind of the community, the shared imagination of the group. Like peeling the layers of skin from an onion, it is a slow process of gradual steps as he digs deeper into these imaginative psychological spaces. While his images often spring from the personal, they seek, though the process of becoming artworks, to be reformed in a mythic visual language that may be shared by others.
If these are myths, in that they use narrative to describe possible ways of thinking about the world, they are not fables or parables; they do not have a simple moral lesson they seek to impart. Each visual story remains open, inviting viewers to journey into the mythic space and find, perhaps, their own personal answers or empathic resonance.”

Dr Alasdair Foster
