GEORGE BLAIR “HIDDEN IMAGES”. This exhibition is collaboration between painter Cedric Wentworth and photographer George Y. Blair. Beginning with oil-on-canvas paintings performed by Wentworth, Blair, the engineer turned fine art photographer, has produced micro-vignettes and turned them into powerful monuments of abstract expressionist art.
The digital images produced by Blair, are the culmination of a more than sixty-year artistic love affair with post-war Bay Area art. It was not until several decades later that Blair began collecting many of the works by artists that he had admired. Blair’s deep personal experience with abstract art, combined with the technical eye of an engineer, are key ingredients in the constructs offered within this exhibition.
