Brian Block's practice is centered on language as it relates to perception. His projects often explore our relationships to perceptual authorities, and the realities they produce and propagate. Block often begins his projects with in-depth research followed by the creation of works which engage with forms of knowledge and information produced within authoritative forms of reality.

Current projects include the "Information Paintings" which take up museum wall label texts from his archive: www.artinformations.com and move them into the language of painting. His project "The Edward Bernays Case" developed out of research into the psychoanalysis of controversial and notorious self-aggrandizing Public Relations pioneer Edward Bernays (1891-1995), whose knowledge of psychology of public persuasion arrived from his uncle Sigmund Freud.
