Blair Hobbs’s fantastical, multi-media compositions respond to an impulse to capture real or imagined narratives and represent them on canvas. Her figures are animated charicatures caught in the midst of swirling colors, symbols, and text in a deliberate obfuscation of the boundary between interior and exterior.

Hobbs grew up in Auburn, Alabama. She has an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Michigan, and teaches poetry at the University of Mississippi.
