About the work

Blake first garnered attention in the late 1990s with his large-scale, semi-abstract digital C-prints that rendered the appearance of being paintings and photographs. His visually dense images often incorporated both abstract and representational expressions through the language of Modernism and voices of Film Noir. Blake's aesthetically stylized works addressed a range of subjects from violence to glamour and decadence to metaphors of architectural spaces to profiles of cultural personifications. Blake dissolved the distinction between object and time-based art while combining abstraction and representation in fresh and exciting ways.
