CL RECOMMENDS
CL Critic Kevin C. Madigan Recommends: Jackson Fine Art is presenting an exhibition of contemporary photographer Julie Blackmon’s “distinctive domestic compositions” along with newly unveiled works by 20th-century master lensman Elliott Erwitt. Blackmon’s work is a mixture of pop phenomena, consumer culture and social satire, the gallery says. Titled ‘Metaverse,’ her show “turns the cultural signifiers of the present moment into touching domestic tableaus.” Elliott Erwitt’s show ‘Found Not Lost’ is based on decades of previously unprinted and unexhibited work, amounting to a collection of 171 instant classics. Erwitt, 94, is a leading figure in magazine, advertising, and commercial photography who took pictures in the Kennedy era White House and is the author of 20 books. -KCM

From the venue:

Contemporary American photographer Julie Blackmon draws inspiration from the raucous tavern scenes of 17th-century Dutch and Flemish painters, creating photographs based around the people and places in her small community. Blackmon has compared her surroundings to a giant Hollywood prop closet, where a Starbucks employee out on a smoke break may appear in her next photograph, or the beauty shop she passes every day becomes the setting for a new piece. “It’s a fun perspective to have ... to see the world around you as a potential story or idea. It changes how you see things. Nora Ephron said, ‘everything is copy,’ and that has really stayed with me. I live and work in a generic town, with a generic name, in the middle of America, in the middle of nowhere... but the stories unfolding around me are endless.”

Blackmon’s work serves as a mash-up of pop phenomena, consumer culture, and social satire. Taking its name from the 2022 photograph “Metaverse,” which depicts a hectic household scene unfolding around a toddler clad in a virtual reality headset, Jackson Fine Art’s exhibition follows Blackmon’s trajectory of incorporating the cultural signifiers of the present moment into touching domestic tableaus.
