    About The Work

    The butter and the money for the butter is a new limited edition artwork by Lucas Blalock, produced on the occasion of the 2019 NY Art Book Fair. The work is constructed of 8 individual photographs printed on aluminum and bound with cloth to create a book-like sculptural object. In it Blalock is playing with both a flatfooted literalization of still life as “things-on-a-table” and with cinematic montage of different image relationships produced through the viewer’s movement around the work. Through the use of ambiguous objects, extreme surface tension, and yet oddly familiar characters, the work offers a glimpse into the uncanny and a perpetually shifting universe.
