About Blake's Art
This page aims to share a selection of artwork Blake created
since being on death row in Florida.
All works were created with most basic materials, completely self-taught,
and are mainly dedicated to his friends, beloved ones
and most of all to his family and wife.
Here you find Blakes own words about him and his art:
'Job Suffering' by Blake 2013
"This is a graphite drawing I did of JOB, a prophet of God. Satan tried to tempt him. This is an image of him suffering." Blake
15 I HAVE SEWED SACKCLOTH OVER MY SKIN AND
BURIED MY BROW IN DUST.
16 MY FACE IS RED WITH WEEPING,
DEEP SHADOWS RING MY EYES;
17 YET MY HANDS HAVE BEEN FREE OF VIOLENCE
AND MY PRAYER IS PURE.
JOB 16, 15-17 (NIV)
