Photography Exhibition by Natalie Krick Opens Thursday, January 16

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.

Jan. 14 - 22 – Jerry Slough Mid-Thesis Exhibit
reception Jan. 14 at 4pm
Gallery 231 will host a Master of Fine Arts mid-thesis exhibition featuring artwork by Department of Art + Design graduate student Jerry Slough. The exhibit title,  Constructing Memory,  refers to Slough’s interest in the relationship between the screen and remembrance. His photographic works use non-traditional installation and materials to look at the fallacy of memory in the digital age.
