Blaise Drummond was born in Liverpool in 1967, but has lived and worked in Ireland for many years. His influences include 1960s American land art, punk rock, the characteristic architecture of Le Corbusier and Alvar Alto, the notes made by writer Henry D. Thoreau during his stay at Walden, and the landscape paintings of Caspar David Friedrich. These sources of inspiration may at first glance seem widely disparate, but all are concerned with contradictions between nature and culture, i.e. the civilised versus the uncontrollable.
Drummond's works are represented in several public collections, including the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Nantes, France; the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, UK and the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin.
