“Painter Kathryn Brimblecombe-Fox has been delving into the tantalising seductions of perspective, literal and metaphoric, for years. Cosmology, the scientific study of the Universe [possibly Multiverse] is a major influence. Its revelatory processes, that encompass the quantum to the vast in scale and time, demand attention. Exploring the potency of perspective provides clues to how we observe and relate to things. In the 21st century cosmology is perhaps demanding us to develop abilities in ‘seeing’ multi-perspectives, even simultaneously. In her paintings Kathryn attempts to engage with these perspectives by playing with orientations of objects and observers [human or technologically mediated or other] in multi-dimensional ways. She uses landscape as her ‘launching pad’ taking horizons beyond Earth into the cosmos. By untethering ideas of landscape from Earth, new perspectives of the planet, humanity and the Universal [maybe Multiversal] environment are revealed. For example her ‘Pale Blue Dot [After Carl Sagan]’ may be Earth, but nearly 25 years after Voyager 1 left the solar system and turned its camera back towards Earth to take the famous photograph ‘Pale Blue Dot’, Kathryn imagines leaving our Universe to explore the Multiverse, thus her painting could be our Universe…yet it could be an atom, a drop of water or even a thought.” www.kathrynbrimblecombe-fox.com and www.kathrynbrimblecombeart.blogspot.com
