Blair Lamar



Blair Lamar is an American born artist, who has come to live and work in London. In the artist's work the figure is not the first object seen, but is purposely abstracted organically, influenced by the highlights and shadows. When first viewing the painting the colour and shapes are the most prominent aesthetics. After spending more time looking within the painting the figure emerges to reveal the true composition. The painting then becomes about discovery and going beyond that discovery. While the artist has spun a story it is very open ended for the viewer. Even unseen to the artist is where the flowing shapes will take the viewer next, for they see their own interpretation of unintended forms found between the colours.
