Blake Rayne@Sutton Lane
Sutton Lane Paris, Blake Rayne Coastal Graphics
April 14th - May 14th
To quote Howard Halle of Time Out reviewing Blake's 2010 show in New York.
"The overall effect is maddeningly convoluted and endearingly dopey"
"The creamy formalist center may be covered with a thin theoretical shell, but it is still eye candy."
The management of differing styles and processes is what annoyed the critics with Gerhard Richter's inventiveness because it appeared to be lacking emotional investment, lacking commitment. He redeemed himself with uncompromising craft. I like the questions Blake raises and believe his commitment.
