Julie Blackmon — Homegrown
through November 15th, 2014

Opening Friday, September 26th from 5-7

Drawing on the Dutch notion of “a Jan Steen Household,” meaning a boisterous and untidy home filled with rambunctious children, Blackmon crafts images of domestic disarray in a contemporary suburban context. These engaging tableaus are photographed in and around Blackmon’s Missouri home, often depicting her own children and extended family. Avoiding the overtly sentimental, Blackmon’s precisely orchestrated compositions blend wit and whimsy in the face of everyday realities. Blackmon’s large-scale color photographs draw inspiration from everyday life as well as fiction; recent images draw from the works of Edward Gorey, Tim Burton, Lewis Carroll and Federico Fellini — and continue to be influenced by 17th century Dutch and Flemish paintings
