Blake M Conroy is from Aberdeen, Maryland. He holds a BFA from Maryland Institute, College of Art, graduating Magna Cum Laude. Blake is a recipient of a Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Award. In a world that commodifies nature, Blake shows us the individuality of every living thing. After drawing and laser-cutting images of the same subject viewed from different perspectives, he layers these multimedia sheets atop each other, forcing the viewer to look closely enough to recognize minute differences. Blake disseminates his message through art: we must preserve and protect the richness of our world—replete as it is with unique, particular things. Blake enjoyed an artist’s residency at Glo’Art in Belgium in April 2018. Blake is represented by the Carla Massoni Gallery in Chestertown Md. Selected shows include: Solo shows at Hardesty Arts Center in Tulsa Ok, Bloomsbury University, Bloomsbug Pa, Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati Oh. He has also shown at McNeese State University, Lake Charles, La., Masur Museum, Monroe, La (People's Choice Award), UH Hilo Art Department, Hilo, Hi., and The Bennington Center For the Arts, Bennington, Vt.
