Installation view of Fragments. April 9 - 15, 2021. 400 West Rich, Columbus, OH 43215.
Inspired by appropriation and imagery found online, Fragments recontextualizes eleven reproduced images in the form of acrylic paint on yupo paper. The work features various celebrities Blake uses as vehicles to describe her relationship with online echo chambers. The exhibition is achromatic with a strong emphasis on not only black and white, but the grey area in between which she finds much more interesting. Rather than giving the viewer a definite reason for the given imagery, Blake hopes that they can independently seek out the correlations between the crossover of information she has provided.
