Jeremy Blake’s Sodium Fox, on view at Honor Fraser
"Like many galleries at the Armory Show this year, the Los Angeles gallery Honor Fraser devoted itself to a single artist, in this case a series of ravishing works by the late digital video artist Jeremy Blake (who tragically committed suicide in 2007). In addition to selections from Blake’s "Winchester Mystery House" suite of videos, the gallery also featured a lovely photo frieze, Every Hallucination on the Sunset Strip, an homage to Ed Ruscha that points to the affinity between Blake’s narcotic style and the dean of L.A. Pop’s dark sense of irony. But the most ravishing work on view is certainly Sodium Fox, a video exploration of occult themes. It’s $55,000 in an edition of six."
