Biography

Blandine Saint-Oyant's vibrant abstract paintings reflect her passion for the process of painting, her love of color and of the sensuality of the materials. Her work explores the relationship between spontaneity and formality, randomness and structure, fluidity and control.

She was born in Lyon and grew up in Avignon, France. In 1980 she moved to the United States. Shortly afterwards she began studying art at the Art Institute of Chicago and later at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, where she received a BFA and diploma in painting. In 1994 she received an NEA/SAF Fellowship. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group shows on the east coast and in the Los Angeles area. She lives and has her studio in Pasadena, California, but she has maintained her roots in France, where she spends part of every year.
