Come along on Craig Blacklock’s visual exploration of 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.
