“Domestic Vacations” is a solo show of large scale photographs from Julie Blackmon. The exhibition is currently on view at the Fahey/Klein Gallery.

Julie Blackmon - Family Portrait - 2007

Julie Blackmon has three children and is herself the oldest of nine. Her life is awash with familial responsibilities and teeming with the chaos of our “makeover culture”. Surreal occurrences in the everyday act as source material for her inspiration. This daydream quality may also be the energy that sustains her as sibling and mother.

Julie Blackmon - The Power of Now - 2008

The compositions are wrought with boundaries begging to be crossed. Many of the figures show up as parts broken by windows and severed by the edge of the picture plane. These body fragments offer a strong counter to the comfort zone initiated by the idyllic surroundings.
