    About The Work

    Lucas Blalock’s Thimblerig uses software as its material, declaring “painterly” operations to be capable of distinctly authored aesthetics. Such an approach brings the material possibilities of software into focus, essentially calling out Photoshop as a medium in its own right, with inherent possibilities for creative subjectivity and for defining the character of contemporary picture-making. Blalock says of his work, "When I started making the work shown here, in 2006, I was channeling a then-newfound interest in the nineteenth century— photography’s role in it, and figures from Courbet to P. T. Barnum.”
