Tamlin Blake

Tamlin Blake is a professional mixed media South African artist.

She is interested in what constitutes and underpins each individual’s sense of belonging and identity in a country that is home to many varying cultures.

In her current work, she explores the making of memories and individual identity through inherited heirlooms, treasured objects as well as the spaces once revered by lost friends or family. Through loss and memory objects that were once simply interesting to look at acquire meaning and value beyond their mere physicality. Landscapes and mountain ranges too become emotionally charged, able to leave an indelible mark on one’s sense of self.

For Tamlin: “The Riebeek Valley will always be a place of wonder, enrichment and heartache.”
