Blair explores the point where shape, colour, and human form become one.

She assigns one colour to act as shadow, one as highlight, and the last as the tone in-between. Each piece then takes on an organic process, as she moves around the canvas, painting shapes of colour that flow between the figure and surrounding space. Constantly rotating the palette, Blair uses different brush shapes to create intriguing forms of line and shape.

Gradually the figure is subsumed by paint, becoming part of the artwork itself. This balance between abstraction and figuration gives her paintings a sense of discovery.

The viewer is invited to not only enjoy the visual aesthetics of each piece, but to explore the abstracted shapes of colour. Thus revealing the human form that first inspired the artist.
