Blair Saxon-Hill is a multidisciplinary artist working primarily in collage and sculpture. Her figurative assemblages, pedestrian and gritty, register current cultural and political realities, while her paper and fabric collages often cultivate playful, joyous atmospheres. "Always underlying these concerns," Saxon-Hill writes, "is my commitment to addressing assumptions around what is considered 'normal' within our society." As a materials-driven artist, Saxon-Hill most often works with found objects and rare books, allowing their forms and material histories to inform her construction process. Saxon-Hill permutes the quotidian into a language of her own – buoyant, generative and idiosyncratic.

Blair Saxon-Hill (b. 1979, Eugene, OR, US; lives and works in Portland, OR, US) has exhibited work across the United States, including exhibitions at Pace Prints, New York, NY; The Shrine, Los Angeles, CA; JOAN, Los Angeles, CA; VENUS Over Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA; Maccarone LA, Los Angeles, CA; Hallie Ford Museum, Salem, OR; Disjecta, Portland, OR.
