Blair Saxon-Hill’s cast of characters are queer, surreal, humorous, gritty and urgent.
The sculptures anticipate their relationship to a staged performance and work to ensure that they are capable of conversing with the daily news in installation.

Exhibitions of Saxon-Hill’s work include the 2021 New Museum International Triennial of Contemporary Art, New York, New York; 500 Meter Gallery in Sapporo, Japan; Nino Mier Gallery, JOAN, VENUS Over Los Angeles, and Maccarone LA in Los Angeles, California; and the Hallie Ford Museum, Salem, Oregon. Her work has been reviewed in numerous arts publications including Frieze, Artforum, and LA Weekly.
