Blair Tyler Peters is a painter and mixed media collage artist. She is pursuing a Master’s Degree in Painting at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Her permanent residence is Inverness, California.
In recent paintings Blair has begun incorporating antique paper and other found materials to add a temporal dimension to her work. Old pages, spray paint, sewing and paint add layers and create surface texture which implies an impression of time. The work explores the use of line as personal iconography, stitching and pasting together stories and memories of womanhood. Throughout history, stitching has offered a space for women to disclose the private, document the deeply personal, and venerate the lives of others. Blair’s work delves into the multitude of ways women have preserved their words over time.
Blair completed a year of Graduate Study at the San Francisco Art Institute in 2021. Prior to her graduate studies she graduated from the University of Virginia with a double major in Printmaking and Art History, as well as a year of study at the Rhode Island School of Design. Notable recent shows include a 3 person show at the Arc Gallery in San Francisco and Bold Expressions (Sacramento Fine Arts Center).
