From temporal stacking and the studio, to worldly and virtual space, the artist discusses ideas key to his practice.
This talk has been timed to coincide with the exhibition You Are Looking at Something That Never Occurred at Zabludowicz Collection and with Blalock's work featured in our Touchstone display (23 June - 11 October 2017).
Lucas Blalock (b. 1978, Asheville, NC, USA. Lives and works in New York) uses a photographic process that shares much with drawing: creating and erasing layers of visual information to build playful and intriguing compositions. His approach encompasses abstract and figurative imagery, and digital and analogue techniques. A large format film camera is used in the studio and on location, with Photoshop then employed to erase elements or add pictorial material. Blalock’s work creates connections with many strands of visual culture, from modern art and advertising, to personal snaps of everyday surroundings.
