About blakelee harmon



Blakelee Harmon is an established artist based in New York City who has dedicated her life to creating work that bonds human souls. She developed her sense of composition first through dance, exploring movement and stillness, music and silence, light and darkness, giving and taking, boundaries and abandon. Blakelee attended Marymount Manhattan for a bachelor's degree in dance media where she also trained in oil painting and photography. She began using each of these mediums in tandem to explore concepts and inform the finished piece of work, and continues to use this method. Whatever strikes her in her daily routine is recorded and reflected in the chapter of each painting she is working on.
Blakelee believes that if you are truly present, the universe will expose specific messages that will guide each of us to a greater state of awareness. She believes it is each person’s responsibility to develop through constantly evaluating personal circumstances. By sharing her own evaluation process for each painting, Blakelee hopes to connect with the viewer’s understanding of their personal life experiences and expose the complications of consciousness.
Blakelee has choreographed twice for Marymount Manhattan’s “Dancers at Work” showcase, trained with Ellen Robbins at New York Live Arts, and placed in the top ten at New York Dance Festival 2013 for choreography. She has had work in the online art room exhibit and was a featured artist in the NY State of Mind exhibit at One Art Space Gallery as well as Artist Profile Magazine. In 2019 she was contracted with NYA gallery in an artist booth where she was able to produce new work including large scale oil paintings, performance art, and installations. For the months of June and July 2019 she was consigned with 1st Dibs Gallery and Gallery 104, while also being a featured artist for the RAW Artist Event “Arise” in August. Blakelee’s most recent accomplishments include finishing up her first “Winter Loft Sessions” in Brooklyn, joining the Calling All Creative community, and becoming an artist for the company “Artist to Artist” custom leotards for professional dance companies made from fine art. You can see her painting “Murmur” on Ballet Hispanico Company Member Shelby Colona.
