James H Blake, Jr.



After painting over two-dozen large-scale oils in 1984-85, James Blake is now concentrating on his musical interests in an effort to explore the relationships among several of the fine arts. His group, the James Harlan Band, is currently in the studio working on its first album for Gr·ranite records in San Francisco. He plans to use his paintings and drawings for record covers; one of the drawings in the Drawing National is being used on the cover of the group's first single, ''Lawman.'' Blake feels that practicing architecture for the past five years has led him to the verge of some perceptual breakthroughs into the principles that generate and order all forms of human expression. His unpublished novel Crimson Marble was an initial attempt to articulate some of these ideas.
