Bio

My name is Bethani Blake and I am currently pursuing my B.F.A in Painting at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia. Born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, it is my intention to manifest my everyday observations through the form of both visual and performing arts. 

 

Artist Statement

I translate a present day world that is infected with personal nostalgia, recontextualizing appropriated and personal images. My fascination with 90s and early 2000s imagery began with the influence of my older siblings. From an early age, I was a silent observer of my brothers and found myself connecting with the fads and icons of the millennial generation more so than those of Generation Z. This connection moves me to translate my experiences in contemporary society with subject matter rooted in cultural movements specific to the turn of the 21st century. I base my practice around seriality and accessible imagery to draw the viewer in with the hope that I can inspire recollection.

Alternatively, I'm a comedian and the only one who's laughing.
