 ©Cory Blair 2020

 

Cory Blair’s art education has been influenced by visits to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York at an early age and later to travels in European museums in Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade, and Berlin. She received her Bachelor of Arts in 2016 from Hampshire College (USA), a radical institution that emphasizes alternative pedagogies over numerical grades. After graduating, she felt that although her understanding of art in a contemporary age was strong, she sought to deepen her perspective on the technical craft of painting and knowledge of art history by studying with specific teachers and later moving to Europe. 

Her works are painted in acrylic and oil on canvas using techniques adapted from the Italian and Dutch masters that results in a production of opaque textures layered with translucent, optical colors. Her paintings reference classical approaches to painting and express her research into the metaphysical realm. Her influences range from 14th Century paintings to early Impressionism, and includes fantastical realism, contemporary realism, and the movement of visionary art. 

 

Cory Blair has completed numerous public street art murals and has exhibited paintings internationally in the US, Germany, Russia, Serbia, Spain, and Greece. Her passion is driven by the contemplative beauty in nature and the unseen depths of human perception. She is a queer, Jewish, New Jersey-an and is based in the vibrant city of Berlin, Germany.
