Artist Talk: Craig Block, Abstract Photographs of Reflections from Lake Superior

Date: September 30, 2023

Time: 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Location: Johnson Heritage Post

Event Description

Join artist Craig Blacklock for his presentation, Light Waves – Abstract Photographs of Reflections from Lake Superior. For 47 years Blacklock’s artistic practice has been intrinsically linked to the interface of land and water in wilderness areas—most often Lake Superior. Over that time his artwork has evolved from color landscapes depicting what these places looked like to increasingly non-representational imagery untethered from context.

His most recent body of work, Light Waves, is a series of images isolating the complex mirror of Lake Superior’s surface, producing a purely abstract representation of the palette and textures lying outside of the frame. Craig will show his traditional landscapes from Lake Superior providing both historic and artistic context for his Light Waves images, present the Light Waves images within the context of other abstract artists, including Grand Portage’s George Morrison, and show segments of his otherworldly, and mesmerizing Light Waves video.

Craig will have several of his books available for purchase and signing after the event.
