Artist Morgan Blair on her “pathological need to make you laugh”

By Bryony Stone

Morgan Blair grew up in a rural part of central Massachusetts as an only child, a lonely upbringing which she says probably led her to become an artist. “Drawing and painting have always been my favourite things to do since I was little, because it’s a good thing to do by yourself,” she explains. “I ended up going to Rhode Island School of Design for illustration, and after graduating and continuing to pursue that path kind of half-successfully, I started making more abstract paintings, trying to separate myself from the rules I had learned in school about what would make an successful image. It’s just gotten weirder from there, although now some representational forms are creeping back in.”
