Photography Exhibition by Natalie Krick in the Sarah Spurgeon Gallery

January 16—February 9, 2020

Fueled by her fascination with popular culture, Natalie Krick makes photographs that mimic cliché images of sexuality and beauty. Krick received her MFA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago in 2012. She currently lives and works in Seattle. The exhibit includes photographs from two recent series of work by Natalie Krick, Natural Deceptions and Blonde Blow Out . The photographs are inspired by Krick’s conflicting attraction and aversion to images of women in popular culture. She photographs herself, her mother, and her sister in poses and settings that mimic the glamour of magazines. The resulting images reveal beauty as artificial, flawed, threatening, seductive, and garish. They also uncover the role that photography plays in constructing illusions of female beauty and sexuality.
