jeremy blake

here are some works by artist Jeremy Blake who mysteriously committed suicide in July 2007 after after his girlfriend of twelve years committed suicide in new york. Blake was an American digital artist and painter. in months leading up to his death, Blake and his girlfriend were said to complain continually of being harassed by Scientologists. Blake created a myriad of short films, paintings, and new media pieces in addition to doing the artwork for Beck's 2002 album Sea Change and the hallucination dream sequences in the 2002 film Punch Drunk Love. If you're curious, Vanity Fair covered the piece about Blake's mysterious suicide (as did every other major online syndication).
