Show RCA 2019

Francesca Blomfield

Show RCA work

Major project:


  • The atmosphere of night creates the condition from which I synthesise drawing, painting and writing. This temporality of night allows for a multiplicity of space that has the potential for different transgressions enacting a descent into the subconscious to form a type of psychic self-surgery.
