Drawing is at the core of Blaze’s practice, seeking out subjects for her work in ancient woodlands and recording her experiences in sketches and photographic diaries. Working primarily in graphite, charcoal and printmaking techniques to achieve textural monochromatic images of natural landscapes and ancient trees through research and direct interaction with the landscape. Her images dramatize the age and scale of the subjects evoking a connection to dark and mysterious Northern European folk tales and a deep appreciation of environmental aesthetics, as well as exploring the visual representation of non-human timescales.
