Blake Conroy - Visual Artist
"We can't regard a thing as valuable if we can't see that it's unique. For that, we must get close & examine the layers. I magnify and defend the individualities in nature threatened by our normal, heedless distance."

Blake Conroy

2018 Executive Fellow

In a world that commodifies nature, Blake Conroy shows us the individuality of every living thing. After drawing and laser-cutting images of the same subject viewed from many different perspectives, he layers these multimedia sheets atop each other, forcing the viewer to look closely enough to recognize minute differences. Blake applies Aristotle to ecology, and disseminates his message through art: we must preserve and protect the richness of our world—replete as it is with unique, particular things.
