Blake Lawrence is a queer Sydney-based artist working across wearable forms, performance, and digital and camera-less photography; most recently, the alchemical printing process of Cyanotype. His work addresses personal history, fantasy and spirituality, the queered and natural environment and sexuality. His work is deeply tied to the Australian landscape, particularly the estuaries and agricultural lowlands of his hometown Palmers Island, in Northern NSW, and those surrounding Sydney. He performs post-gender neo-burlesque locally, under the moniker Canoe, and is a member of the club costume/character duo, Wisteria Hysteria.
