Colour-filled magical realism
Becky's work has always focused on the light and joy of living. Her paintings, filled with colour, aim to bring happiness through beautifully composed imagery.
Since graduating in 1994 she has exhibited regularly in the UK and Australia and has work in private and public collections around the world.
In 2014, Becky was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease Lupus. The following months saw her hospitalised, housebound, the impact to her joints leaving her unable to paint, the chronic pain rendering her unable to walk, eat and even sleep. Her work since then reflects Becky’s journey back to better health
“Though this work does not dwell in the suffering, it is imbued with a richer appreciation of happiness. Humbled by the insight of my experience, I feel so fortunate to be in better health. I now know how precious and fragile the balance of our lives is."
Becky's paintings take me on travels and adventures and away from the hum drum of daily life.
The quality of Becky Blair's paintings is undeniable. Her colours bring my home alive and make it look fresh and vibrant. We love her work and will be looking for another one soon.
