There is a road from the eye to the heart that does not go through the intellect.

G. K. Chesterton


I am pleased to announce that two of my paintings, "Unfamiliar Constellations ," shown above, and "The Goddess of Things Half-remembered ," were selected in the top 15% of approximately 1,350 entries in the Bold Brush competition, sponsored by Fine Art Studio Online.


About My Work

"Art is the demonstration that the ordinary is extraordinary."
Amédée Ozenfant

My hope for my paintings is that the viewer will find there a place of thoughtfulness, rest, invigoration and inspiration. I want the viewer to feel the need to pause and be drawn into the painting, and that this will happen again and again. My goal is for someone to see a painting every day for years, and still experience something new with each observation.

"If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite."
William Blake

In my paintings I strive to convey a sense of the infinite which exists in the everyday but is veiled to our conventional senses. I believe that everything within the universe is comprised of the same elements, of the same energy; and if we are open to it, we can perceive and experience the universe through every object, every form of life, and equally through every landscape and every event.

"The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance."

My current work is an effort to integrate three facets which jointly help us to experience this sense of the infinite: first, that which we call real, the world experienced through our senses, captured by the depiction of objects; second, what is commonly included in the concept of intellectual, expressed by the use of geometric shapes and patterns; and finally, connecting and embracing the first two, the cosmic, expressing that which we can intuit as though things were unbounded by space and time.

Through this effort, I hope to share the recognition that within all of us resides that which is true.

"Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others."
Jonathan Swift

I work in oils because of their elasticity and richness. I use classical painting techniques of glazing and layering of colors to create depth and resonance in the colors. My current inspiration is the intersection of the daily and the universal. All aspects of our natural and human-created world are formed of the elements once created in the star nurseries. In my paintings I strive to communicate this connection through the melding of realism with abstraction. I seek to portray the combination of sensory, intellectual and spiritual understandings of our universe.

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all sciences."
Albert Einstein


Creating artworks has been a life-long endeavor for Lynette Blake. She majored in art at Brown University, where she was a student of Edward Koren, well known for his quirky cartoon drawings popularized in New Yorker Magazine. Her work has been shown at the Oxford Gallery, The Geisel Gallery, Williams Gallery and Steve Carpenter Gallery in Rochester, New York; Ock Hee's Gallery in Honeoye Falls, New York; at the former Vagabond Gallery in Canandaigua, New York; at the Delavan and Szozda Galleries in Syracuse, New York; Buffalo Trails Gallery in Jackson Hole, Wyoming; and Gallery 44 in Ellicott City, Maryland; as well as in exhibition spaces in Connecticut and New Hampshire.

In addition to her painting, Lynette is a serious amateur singer, a charter member of the Renaissance vocal ensemble Musica Spei (Music of Hope), and holds a black belt, third degree, in Taekwondo.

Lynette Blake works take me out into "multi-universes"! Her works are simple yet profound. They invite mystery. Although her art is often on canvas it takes on qualities of ceramics and otherness. It is exciting. Keep on, Lynette.

Steve Rossi
Phenomenal use of layering to accentuate light and darkness, intriguing use of geometry to connect nature with the more abstract, subtlety and definition meld to sublimity. Well done Lynette :)

Larry DeKock
Congratulations Lynette, for receiving the COLLECTOR ALERT. I fell in love with your work years ago when I first saw one of your paintings at Vagabond Gallery in Canandaigua. I still remember thinking what a beautiful style. One was a scenic with dark clouds. The clouds gave me this feeling that they were ready to burst with lightening and rain as if I were looking at real clouds. Except they were abstract enough that you felt the real presents of the artist through the brushing and scubbling of the paint on the canvas.

I also feel that your Williams Gallery show was and still is the best one person show I have ever seen in Rochester, NY with maybe one exception and that person you know well. This is for you though, and it is wonderful to see the work you do and see it now up on FASO - Informed Collector .
