Jorge Méndez Blake

The work of Méndez Blake (*1974 in Guadalajara, Mexico) is built on investigations between art, literature and architecture; addressing literary works as spatial influences that can be translated into concrete objects. The artist employs analysis and synthesis as tools to transform the narrative and the poetic into visual compositions, attempting to make evident the material aspects that are implied in the act of writing. He refers to the great master of universal literature, such as Jorge Luis Borges, Emily Dickinson, Jules Verne, Franz Kafka and James Joyce amongst others.
