Jeremy Blake


The dreamlike, psychological investigation that is characteristic of artist Jeremy Blake‘s work has developed since his short film “Reading Ossie Clark” in 2003. Blake is well known for his DVDs, C-prints, paintings and drawings, all of which present visual narratives that are broken by psychedelic and hallucinogenic imagery. In 2002, the artist was invited by director Paul Thomas Anderson to create a digital series of abstracted sequences for the film Punch-Drunk Love, featuring Adam Sandler. Blake will be featured in the new issue T of art and design magazine Beautiful Decay, which is available now. Regretfully, before that issue’s release, the art world lost Jeremy Blake and his romantic partner, filmmaker, critic and video game artist Theresa Duncan in a tragic series of events. Blake, a graduate of the California Institute of the Arts, was selected three times in a row for the Whitney Biennial (’00, ’02, ’04). His “Winchester” video series was presented at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMoMA). Other works have been acquired by the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in NYC and the Centro de Arte Caja de Burgos Museum of Contemporary Art in Spain.
