Artworks are based in photography, installation, and video. Blaine's thematic interests have included the inherent properties of the photograph and its relation to the viewer, landscape use and modification, processes of mediation and artifice in relation to transcendent experience, and parallels between Jacques Derrida’s “textuality” and quantum theory. In 2007, Blaine received the national award in the BMO 1st Art! Invitational juried competition and the Emerging Artist Award from the Contemporary Arts Society. Recently he was shortlisted for the Eldon and Anne Foote Prize, and completed residencies at the Banff Centre and TRIUMF. 

A 2007 graduate of Emily Carr University with a BFA in photography, Blaine previously completed B.Math and M.Sc. degrees in mathematics at the University of Waterloo and University of Calgary, respectively.
