This catalogue was published to coincide with the artist's solo exhibition Fictional Spaces, 24 October - 23 November 2003. The publication includes an introduction by Hugh Stoddart, who writes: As he puts it, 'it creates a shift in another direction. It becomes a gateway to another space, it opens us up to thinking about how the painting feels.' We think about the feeling we derive from one painting as opposed to what we derive from another...This is the fictional space to which Blacklock refers in the overall title to the exhibition.
