Dike Blair (b. 1952) is a painter and sculptor who says the one constant in his work is the subject of light, remarking that his objects tend to be more formal while his paintings remain more personal. Blair mounted a museum show at Secession in Vienna in early 2016. Other notable solo exhibitions include those at Gagosian Gallery (New York), Karma (New York), Feature, Inc (New York), and Linn Luhn (Dusseldorf). His work has been included in group shows at the Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles), Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York), and Walker Art Center (Minneapolis). Blair received his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1977, and studied at the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. In 2009, he received a Guggenheim Fellowship, as well as the Rome Prize a year later. Blair currently lives and works in New York.
