Jeremy Blake

Jeremy Blake is a digital artist and painter born in Fort Sill, Oklahoma. He got his BFA in 1993 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and his MFA in 1995 from the California instate of the arts. In 2000, 2002 and 2005 he was selected to be part of the Whitney Biennial.He is most famous for his “Winchester” series which is inspired by the Winchester Mystery House, and his digital C-prints. Two of my favorite C prints from him are “The Witches Cap” done in 2004

2004

and “Sodium Family Values” done in 2005.2005

Both of them speak to me in an aesthetic level. I Think the colors are extremely well balanced.  Neither are too bright or too dark. His paintings are also really cool. They are very hyper realistic which I love. My favorite is “Sodium Ancestor.”

It looks like a photo that was just blurred out a little on Photoshop. Very realistic and very cool.
