New York–based artist Dike Blair explores the relationship between sculpture and painting, solidity and light, in mixed-media installations. His gouache still lifes and landscapes on paper are photorealist (painted from his own snapshots) and show objects such as Coke cans, VHS tapes, sci-fi paperbacks, eyes, and botanical forms. These more traditional, personal works are contrasted against sculpture that tends toward post-minimal formality and incorporates industrial elements like carpeting, lamps, and power cords. In recent hybrid sculptures, Blair enclosed framed gouache paintings and other objects within painted shipping crates, which could be unpacked to generate larger, transient works.
