PRIMARY INFORMATION

Lucas Blalock: A Grocer's Orgy


Lucas Blalock: A Grocer's Orgy

This career-spanning artist's book presents an alternate history of the photography of New York–based photographer Lucas Blalock (born 1978), featuring new images and previously unseen versions of existing artworks. Employing his signature style of unconcealed digital alterations, including erasures and drawings, and working in both color and black and white, Blalock emphasizes what is absent or obliterated in his manipulated portraits, scenes and still lives, often with a deadpan humor.

In A Grocer's Orgy, the artist's layout of such images brings to the forefront the underlying themes, formal connections and art-historical reference points that are often overlooked in the context of his exhibitions.

Strange humor in Lucas Blalock's 'A Grocer's Orgy'

Strange humor in Lucas Blalock's 'A Grocer's Orgy'

Featured image is reproduced from Primary Information's enigmatic and strangely funny new artist's book by Lucas Blalock. The title, A Grocer's Orgy, comes from Baudelaire’s The Painter of Modern Life, in which the author writes of “The Dandy” that “these beings have no other calling but to cultivate the idea of beauty in their persons, to satisfy their passions, to feel and to think. They thus possess a vast abundance both of time and money, without which fantasy, reduced to a state of passing reverie, can hardly be translated into action. It is sad but only too true that without the money and the leisure, love is incapable of rising above a grocer’s orgy or the accomplishment of a conjugal duty.” continue to blog
