In her series, a dot red, Christa Blackwood (Austin) explores new perspectives on traditional genres and images found in landscape and portrait photography through the use of hand-pulled photogravures. Replacing the central “figure” of the compositions with a red dot, these traditional landscapes combine historical photographic techniques with a contemporary conceptual strategy that shifts the foci and enables the viewer to reconsider the traditional ways in which relationships to art works’ subjects are established.
