Julie Blackmon: HOMEGROWN
Opening, Artist Reception & Book Signing Friday, September 26th, 2014, 5–7pm
Exhibition continues through November 15th, 2014.
photo-eye Gallery is located at 541 S. Guadalupe St. (in the Railyard Arts District), Santa Fe.
Drawing on the Dutch proverb of 'a Jan Steen Household,' meaning a
boisterous home life
filled with rambunctious children, Blackmon crafts images of domestic
disarray in a contemporary suburban context. Blackmon¹s large-scale color
photographs are inspired by 17th century Dutch and Flemish paintings,
reimagining the American family within an art historical framework.
Avoiding the overtly sentimental, Blackmon's precisely orchestrated
compositions blend wit
and whimsy in the face of everyday realities.
