Julie Blackmon –Day Tripping

Preview

As the oldest of nine children, Julie Blackmon's work has always drawn inspiration from her family life, her extended family playing the role of both model and muse. At the same time, her work looks far back into the history of art to the paintings of the Dutch Renaissance master Jan Steen, who was known for his carefully constructed scenes of domestic chaos. However, in this newest work, we see Blackmon taking a more contemporary approach by shifting her focus to the work of the French painter, Balthus. His paintings of street scenes include many figures who seem to exist each in their own worlds — often indifferent to what is going on around them. Like Blackmon's work, they are scenes in which time stands still, a moment of anticipation before the full story unfolds and reveals how these characters' lives may, or may not intertwine.
