Blake Daniels (b. 1990 Cincinnati, USA) is an American artist living and working in Savannah and Johannesburg. His paintings depict bodies and spaces that are constantly being altered, dislocated, and fragmented through the internalization of the socially built history they experience. Reconfiguring figure and ground relations on the painting surface, Daniels is able to account for the inherent hybridism that has arisen between representation and abstraction. This shift within Daniels paintings speaks to larger postcolonial conditions, contesting notions of pure race, gender, language and nationality. Daniels employs a number of historic painting process to reconfigure the history they document, inventing a wild and playful, yet astutely dark conception of his observed world.
