Two Artists, One Suicide, the Other Missing

“In a case that is reverberating in the art world, the New York Police Department said yesterday that a video-game designer and budding filmmaker committed suicide last week and that her companion, a rising art star, has been missing since Tuesday.

“The filmmaker, Theresa Duncan, 40, who has also drawn attention for her writings on cultural topics, committed suicide in their East Village apartment on July 10, the police said. Her companion, Jeremy Blake, 35, a well-regarded artist known for digital animation that blurs the line between abstract painting and film, has been missing since his clothes were found on a beach in the Rockaways on Tuesday evening, they added.”

  1. So sad… they were both talented. It looks like this turned out not too well since they found his body. It wasn’t just one suicide (apparently). more info here on wikipedia … the part about scientoligists is haunting.
