Capsule Gallery presents Christa Blackwood: Prix West opening reception
For the last four years, Austin-based artist Christa Blackwood has taken her large format film view cameras and models and hit the road, traveling around Texas and across New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah. Her work stages the nude male body within the majesty of North America’s gorgeous western landscape, and situates it in a genealogy of classical photographic studies of the human figure.
Blackwood’s series, Prix West, was awarded one on the top five solo exhibitions of 2015-2016 by The Austin Critics Table and also featured in Lenscratch, The Austin American Statesman, Austin360, Fotofilmic, and Ain’t Bad Magazine. Work from the series has been exhibited at Anderson Ranch, Candela Gallery, Photo Methode Gallery and will be in Fotofilmic’s 2016 International touring exhibition in Los Angeles, Melbourne and Vancouver.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through December 3.
