MORGAN BLAIR

September 26th – October 20th, 2019

OPENING: Thursday, September 26th from 6 – 9pm

This will be Morgan Blair’s second solo exhibition at the gallery. Born in Worcester, MA. and graduating from RISD in 2008, Blair creates paintings with airbrush and sand or matte medium that exist in a realm of quasi abstraction and digital aesthetics. Often taking inspiration from claymation and sketching out the painting with clay, the paintings have a 3D sculptured quality to them that defies resolution. Their word-jazz spam titles pile a bunch of nonsense ideas from the internet in your head, but only further baffle your notion of what you might be looking at. A challenging palette and proliferation of bright gradients make the works feel screenic and other-worldly.

Her first solo show TL: DR was September, 2017 and she has exhibited at Paul Kasmin, The Journal Gallery, Richard Heller Gallery, Thierry Goldberg and Andrew Rafacz among others. She recently completed an 140ft mural in The Netherlands for Stichting Street Art Foundation and a giant curved mural at the Surf Lodge in Montauk, NY
