KATRIN KORFMANN ENSEMBLES ASSEMBLED
SEPTEMBER 13 – OCTOBER 18, 2014

RECEPTION WITH THE ARTIST: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 5-8PM

Korfmann’s work is characterised by the bird’s-eye view perspective from which people are photographed moving in the scene below, capturing them in static images that present an abstract of human interaction: strongly aesthetic, its dynamic bound by the grid of everyday life.

RICHARD TUSCHMAN HOPPER MEDITATIONS
SEPTEMBER 13 – OCTOBER 18, 2014

RECEPTION WITH THE ARTIST: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13,5-8PM

Richard Tuschman found inspiration in the realist, mid-century paintings of Edward Hopper. Combining his interests in art history, photography, painting and assemblage, Tuschman recreated and re-imagined many of Hopper’s paintings in this body of work. Tuschman’s photographs depict real-life models inhabiting dollhouse-sized dioramas built by the artist. The brooding color palette and textural quality typically found in paintings help to blur the line between painting and photography – at first glance, one is not sure which medium is being employed. The subjects in Tuschman’s narratives are captured in timeless moments of deep thought and reflection.

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

GLOBAL WARNING: An exhibition on carbon-based fuel production in the 21st century
September 4 – October 4

Opening reception:
Saturday, September 6, 5-8 pm

Garth Lenz: The True Cost of Oil
Lisa Wiltse: The Charcoal Kids of Ulingan

This exhibition presents two perspectives on the true costs of carbon-based fuel production in the 21st century. The first by Garth Lenz explores the environmental costs related to the pending US State Department approval/disapproval of the $5.3 billion Keystone XL Pipeline, planned to bring oil from the Canadian Tar Sands in Alberta to port on the Gulf of Mexico. The other perspective by Lisa Wiltse explores the human costs by focusing on a small ghetto in Manila, Philippines called Ulingan.

Victory Tischler-Blue: Of Beauty and Ruin
September 20 – November 11, 2014

Opening Reception: Saturday September 20 – 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Victory Tischler-Blue’s stunning landscape photographs capture the epic beauty of the Southwestern desert and with it the remains of failed dreams under crystalline skies. The fine line between life and ruin shows on the faces of her raw-boned outlier portraits: some androgynous, some damaged but rich with life and as fragile as an empty tank of gas, a well gone dry or a faded love.

Filter Photo’s mission is twofold: first, to connect emerging, mid-level, and professional photographers with gallerists, educators, academics, curators, and other elite photography professionals from across the country, with emphasis on those of the Midwest, and in particular those of Chicago; and second, to secure Chicago as a vibrant center and destination for the national photography community, in part by uniting the city’s different groups and institutions in one event.
