There are layers in all we see, do and present in our lives. These are the elements which we want to show, conceal, or perhaps only hint at. What is revealed is equally important to what is not, and both are needed to capture an entire vision.
This is why Cahill processes visuals in layers. Working with an array of different materials, her work involves tiers that either reveal or correspond graphically to one another.
Cahill was traditionally trained, but am passionate about the new array of tools that are being presented and made available to artists.
By combining traditional methods of foundry casting and textile production with modern technology, she can find endless inspiration. Her new work encapsulates the traditional while juxtaposing modern and dissimilar materials, such as steel and silk.

Blair Cahill obtained her BFA from California Institute of the Arts, and then attended the University of Arts London, Chelsea earning my MA in Fine Art. This further established her individual style of combining elements of color and light. In addition to studying at Art Center College of Design, she was awarded the Digital Fabrication Residency, which facilitated exploration of the boundaries of sculpture, tradition and technology. Cahill has also had the honor of lecturing at the International Sculpture convention and the Collage Artists of America.
