This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Jeremy Blake, born in Fort Sill, Oklahoma and raised in Tacoma, Washington, was known for his pioneering approach to fine art in the late 1990s that involves DVDs, C-prints, drawings and paintings that combine realism and abstraction and are visual semi-narratives that combine historical references with relevant contemporary social concerns.  In style, he combined representation and abstraction, non-objectivity and figurative and portrait imagery.  His goal was to convey "a kind of psychological framework to create visual containers for contemporary anxieties and discarded utopian ideals." (Feigen)

His narratives unfolded in dream-like loops that seem to have no beginning nor ending.  He created them with various graphics computer programs, photographs and film footage and then altered the original images with technical methods. 

His education included an M.F.A. from Cal-Arts in 1995, and a B.F.A. at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1993.

Jeremy Blake died in July, 2007, of apparent suicide, having left his clothes on the beach with a 'goodbye' note on a beach in the Rockaways in Queens.  His body was found off Sea Girt, New Jersey.  The note indicated he was distraught over the suicide of Theresa Duncan, a writer and video-game designer, who was his long-time companion.  At the time of his death, he had a work in progress, Glitterbest, a collaboration with musician and designer Malcolm McLaren, for a fall Corcoran Gallery exhibit.

Public collections include the Centro de Arte Caja de Burgos, Spain; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven.  "In 2002 he was invited by director Paul Thomas Anderson to create abstract sequences of art for the film, Punch-Drunk Love.  He also produced a series of album covers and inserts for a CD, Sea Change.

Among his exhibition venues are the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the American Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, New York; and the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.
