We are excited to add Julie Blackmon’s new image, Chaise, 2013 to her upcoming exhibition. The exhibition, Homegrown, will feature many new images, but the inks are barely dry on his one!
This new image is based on a Spanish painting by Mariano Fortuny and is reminiscent of Julie’s childhood. She says, “This is what we did as kids in an old schoolhouse, lay around. When I saw Fortuny’s painting, I immediately thought about laying around in the old schoolhouse with the green walls. Those moments between the chaos.” This image is quieter, a moment between the chaos while the children are calm and resting.
