 Paul Blomkamp’s ‘Summer Ciphers’ / Opening 18 October

A new solo exhibition by respected painter Paul Blomkamp is set to launch at The Melrose Gallery on the 18th of October.

Paul’s detailed works reflect intimate details of electrical activity, layered in colourful intricate patterns and details. Blomkamp experienced a near death experience at a young age and a ‘sea of electrical activity’ where light presented itself as an immensely bright entity.

Blomkamp’s deep seated relationship with Quantum Physics developed out of a dire need to understand and become closely affiliated with the ‘electric essence’ he experienced and to successfully translate his meditative states into a visual format of understanding. Blomkamp’s paintings are celebrations of energized lines, shapes and spaces that throb and glow with pure, strong colour, existing solely for ways to illuminate the dark and the unknown.

The Artist’s relationship with colour and energized line is an attempt, he maintains, ‘to confront the subconscious, and to expose and bring into the light that mystery, that primal force, that may give us clues, affirmations – that existence on our little planet, spinning in this perplexing Cosmos, is worthwhile and meaningful, after all’.
