Over the past decade, Blane De St. Croix has worked with the tradition of landscape art, shifting from the traditional purview of painting in favor of immersive sculptural installations and large collage drawings that address topical issues relating to society, politics, and science. His method involves extended periods of research and exploration of places such as the Arctic Circle and the Gobi Desert, and his work covers issues ranging from polar ice to the contested border between the United States and Mexico. His work reminds us of the precarious nature of the world around us, while using scientific data to document, and question, planetary change.
Blane De St. Croix’s work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally at Fredericks & Freiser, New York, NY; Sculpture Center, Long Island City, NY; Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, NC; The Contemporary Art Center, New Orleans, LA; The Kathmandu International Triennale, Nepal Arts Council; The Bass Museum of Art, Miami, FL: deCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, Lincoln, MA; and Smack Mellon, Brooklyn. He is a 2019 recipient of the Lee Krasner Award, in recognition of a lifetime of artistic achievement, from The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, and has received The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship, The Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant for Painters and Sculptors, and The Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship. His most recent solo show is "How to Move a Landscape" at MASS MoCA.
