Blair Whiteford


watercolor and oil on linen
40 x 30 inches

Blair Whiteford’s recent paintings merge art history and science fiction to create wholly imagined worlds inhabited by the artist’s cast of organic forms. In Tidal Multiplier, Whiteford uses a faded, earthy color palette reminiscent of early Renaissance paintings to build up thin washes of color into a swirling composition. His subjects are vaguely human, embryonic, heavenly, and on a threshold of existence. The tone of the work embodies the strange, complicated optimism of science fiction where an imagined future is the way to a better reality. Whiteford received his MFA from Yale University in 2019, and his work has been exhibited throughout the US.
