Blair Seagram

Blair Seagram interprets photography as a starting point for broader visual explorations in digital media. Building on the panoramic images for which she is best known, a series called Strata shifts to a composite image merging several layers horizontally. From there she began simplifying the image to a digital sketch, applying layers of color and brushwork in Photoshop. Brushstrokes, the pieces represented on Artspace, are exercises in form and color, without photographic reference, and are part of ongoing investigations into two-dimensional space and transparency. 

Seagram’s work has been exhibited at institutions including MoMA, the Parrish Art Museum, the Heckscher Museum of Art, and the Sculpture Center. She is included in several collections including the Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; Musée des Beaux-Arts, Switzerland, the Parrish Art Museum, Water Mill NY, and the US Department of State, Washington DC. She recently completed a residency at The Church in Sag Harbor.
