Featured Works on Exhibition A:
Dike Blair (b. 1952) has mounted solo exhibitions at Gagosian (New York), Linn Leuhn (Dusseldorf), and Feature, Inc (New York). His solo show at Karma, Gouaches (1984 – 2015), runs from April 10 – May 9, 2015. His work has been exhibited in group shows at the Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles), Centre Pompidou (Paris), the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York), and Walker Art Center (Minneapolis). In 2015 Karma published a collection of his gouache paintings in conjunction with his solo exhibition. In 2010 he received the Rome Prize and in 2009, a Guggenheim Fellowship. Blair says one constant in his work is the subject of light, remarking that his paintings are personal while his objects tend to be more formal. Dike Blair studied at the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and received his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1977. He is also a senior critic in the painting department at Rhode Island School of Design. Blair lives and works in New York.
