Blair Thurman's work at La Condition Publique in Roubaix, France
Blair Thurman creates multi-dimensional paintings that recall the pleasures of the road or the big screen of our youth. His influences range from pop art to minimalism, popular music, 70’s cinema and his childhood memories. Standardized figures from small race car tracks, architectural settings and compositions from everyday life take on a nostalgic quality. His work Smoke On The Water (Deep Purple) (Acrylic on wood on plexiglass) shown in this exhibition represents his overall inspiration.
Humain Autonome: fossiles mécaniques is an exhibition curated by Marianne Derrien, Sarah Ihler-Meyer and Salim Santa Lucia and produced by La Condition Publique in Roubaix, France.
