ARTIST BIOGRAPHY
Dike Blair (b. 1952) is a New York-based artist who has been documenting quotidian, mostly American scenes since the 1980s. Working in oil and gouache, his photorealistic tableaus derive from his own photographs, many of which are captured with flash. Blair’s sensitive attention to the ordinary and the commonplace is both romantic and ironic. Featuring cocktails, ashed cigarettes, and split hot dogs, his images cast a wistful glow on the unexceptional phenomena of daily life. Blair’s work is featured in the collections of the Whitney Museum, New York; the Brooklyn Museum, New York; LACMA, Los Angeles; and MoCA Los Angeles, among others. Recent solo exhibitions include Karma, New York (2018); Frieze, New York (2018); Secession, Vienna (2016); and Jüergen Becker Gallery, Hamburg (2016).
