About the Prints
Blair works in woodcut and etching, using traditional techniques. Her interest lies with mark-making that is in tune with her material - whether it be copper or wood. Her vocabulary includes abstraction, simplification, and small editions. By working in series, variant editions occur from the same plate. Blair's subject is often an element of the landscape.
"Salamander Parade" involved the artist for four years and consists of long, narrow etched scrolls and a ceramic installation. The 2018 "Oakle Series" is based on the shapes of oak leaves. The current cyanotypes are improvised portraits of her own garden.
