You can not do so with Insert or Update SQL statements.
1. Be shure that your query result set have RequestLive property = TRUE.
1. Locate  record you need to update.
Source Follows;
procedure UpdateField(FieldName:String;Q:TQuery;Src:TStream);
const
 BufSize = 4096; {we will trasnfer all with 4k buffer}
var
 B:TBlobStream
 Buf:Pointer;
 BytesRead:Integer;
begin
 {Src TStream object (TFileStream,TBlobSTream etc. wich contains data to be updated}
 GetMem(Buf,BufSize);
 B := TBlobStream((Q.FindField(FieldName) as TBlobField), bmOpenWrite);

 try
  repeat
    {Read source data}
   BytesRead := Src.Read(Buf^,BufSize);
  {Write data to field}
   B.Write(Buf^,BytesRead);
 until  BytesRead <> BufSize;
 finally
 {Close streams}
  B.Free;
 FreeMem(Buf,BufSize);
end;
{You can call this method whenever you need update blob field contents., before open stream to source data and put record in edit or insert state, after call Post or CheckBrowseMode}
