Natalie Krick: Natural Deceptions
Natalie Krick recently opened an exhibition, Natural Deceptions, at the Coat Check Gallery, part of the David Weinberg Gallery in Chicago that will run through September 14th. I had to chance to meet Natalie at the Filter Photo Festival last year and have watch her series evolve and become richer over time.
Natalie Krick was born in Portland Oregon and moved to Fort Collins Colorado as a teenager. Fueled by her fascination with popular culture, Krick makes photographs that mimic cliche images of sexuality and beauty. In her ongoing project Natural Deceptions, she photographs her mother and herself to explore the darkness associated with a fluctuating identity as well as her own conflicting attraction and aversion to images of sexualized glamorous women. She has most recently exhibited in Chicago at Johalla Projects in the group show Archetype Drift and the 16th International Open at Woman Made Gallery. This year she is an artist in residence for the South Logan Arts Coalition, a non-for-profit organization which grants studio spaces to artists in storefront spaces located in Logan Square. She received an MFA from Columbia College Chicago in 2012 and a BFA from School of Visual Arts in 2008.
