BLAKE LEE FERGUSON (OFTEN USING THE MONIKER “ACHE”) IS A GIN AND CAFFEINE FUELED ART MACHINE. “I DRINK GIN BECAUSE IT LESSENS THE SHOCK OF WHEN I ACCIDENTALLY DRINK TURPENTINE OUT OF MY BRUSH CUP.” IF YOU’VE EVER MET BLAKE YOU KNOW HE IS AN ARTIST IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD, ESPECIALLY IN HIS QUEST TO HOLD NOTHING BACK. “BEING SELF TAUGHT I THINK IT ALLOWS ME TO GET AWAY WITH CERTAIN THINGS”, HE SAYS, “LIKE PAINTING WITH BUTCHER KNIVES AND SETTING MY PAINTINGS ON FIRE.” BLAKE’S WORK IS EXTREMELY BOLD, YET COMFORTABLY SIMPLE, ABSTRACT AND FIGURATIVE, STRANGE BUT SOMEHOW FAMILIAR AT THE SAME TIME, A TRULY MAGNIFICENT CONTRADICTION."
