Blaise has been working quietly and haphazardly in the northern section of North America for the past couple of decades. He has been able to fly below the radar for a tall person. He makes thoughtful and understated works that satisfy mostly his interests. His approach to both aesthetic and technical problems is quirky and well-informed. His peers respect him, and he deserves more recognition from the great-unwashed masses and the cognoscenti with money: and he can dance.

Blaise became an Artist-in-Residence at Harbourfront Centre in 2022.
