Drawing on the Dutch proverb of “a Jan Steen Household,” meaning a boisterous home life filled with rambunctious children, Blackmon crafts images of domestic disarray in a contemporary suburban context. Blackmon’s large-scale color photographs are inspired by 17th century Dutch and Flemish paintings, reimagining the American family within an art historical framework. Avoiding the overtly sentimental, Blackmon’s precisely orchestrated compositions blend wit and whimsy in the face of everyday realities.

Chaise, 2013 — Julie Blackmon
