I describe my visual art practice as neo-conceptualist, new genre work since I explore areas of meaning production in a variety of media. Recently, I have been experimenting with cinematic formats to create visual discourse within other media. Art writings and artist interviews are published in artUS magazine (Los Angeles) and various artist websites online. Artwork is available at Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects and p|m Gallery in Toronto.

Quick Draw Artist Interview #21: Ben Blatt
Quick Draw Artist Interviews are a series of interviews conducted by Otino Corsano using Facebook's IM Chat feature. Spontaneous conversations with international artists are recorded and documented specifically for publication on this blog.
Quick: meteoric. fierce flora and feisty fauna. A sealed chip is preservation. Somehow from where I’m standing the framed and its external source are visible at the same moment only because of both happenstance and a scientific deflection. They were never just nature’s vacancy. Draw:art about art.
