“I want to keep exploring and taking my paintings as far as I can and then some.” Blaise DeLong 2020

Blaise DeLong’s paintings are complex and beautifully balanced colour harmonies. The edges of her forms play an important role in defining the spatial feeling. The use of oils over acrylic brings luster to the colours.

Blaise DeLong’s paintings explore and manipulate many colour principles. Her art is within the Modernist tradition, she welcomes the infusion of place and sentiment into her abstract matrix. DeLong embraces a revitalizing mysticism and has more in common with European abstractionists, like Itten and Kandinsky.

Her paintings are complex and beautifully balanced colour harmonies. The edges of her forms play an important role in defining the spatial feeling. The use of oils over acrylic brings luster to the colours. She balances control and chaos in her method, allowing the paint to drip at times.

Blaise is currently working and living in Rockport, Ontario. She will be exhibiting her works at The Gallery at 13th Street Winery in the near future. Please stay tuned for an updated exhibition schedule.

“I want the mind to move around and shift and not to be fixed on one thing or on the sensation of colour.” Henry Saxe

These works on paper by Henry Saxe explore the composition of the Borromean Rings, they evolved from his Sphere sculptures. Henry’s paintings, drawings and sculptures all have a very direct correlation to each other.

In 1973 Henry Saxe exhibited at the National Gallery of Canada. His space would appear to be a work in progress; a precarious stepladder, a coil of rope and pieces of steel were scattered about the room. This would be one of the first examples of “installation art” in North America.

“Saxe’s drawings and paintings in the Sixties represented a clash between constructivism and abstract expressionism, combining angular geometries with organic form. These contradictory interests created a conflict in how he handled space. Conflicting components were at times awkward and imbalanced.”

These works on paper by Henry Saxe explore the composition of the Borromean Rings, they evolved from his Sphere sculptures. By using heavy stock, Henry is able to etch into the paper. The carved, incised lines hint at a suspicion of an underlying dimension. Henry’s paintings, drawings and sculptures all have a very direct correlation to each other.

All works on paper are on rag board.
The medium used for Borromean Rings Series is blackboard paint.
For his mixed media works, Henry attaches metal to the rag board.
