About the Artist:
In a world that commodifies nature, Conroy shows us the individuality of every living thing. Conroy disseminates his message through art: “We must preserve and protect the richness of our world—replete as it is with unique, particular things.”After drawing and laser-cutting images of the same subject viewed from different perspectives, the multimedia sheets are layered atop one another, requiring the viewer to closely examine each page's minute differences.
Blake M Conroy resides in Aberdeen, Maryland. Conroy graduated magna cum laude with a BFA from Maryland Institute, College of Art. Conroy is a recipient of a Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Award. Additionally, Conroy was an artist in residence at Glo’Art in Belgium, 2018. Conroy 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.
