Lucas Blalock (born 1978 in Asheville, NC) doesn't graduate from the MFA program at UCLA for several months (he already holds degrees from Bard and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture), but awareness for his unique brand of photography is increasing at a rapid pace. 2012 proved to be an especially busy year for him, with participation in exhibitions at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, MA, On Stellar Rays, Higher Pictures, Marc Jancou Contemporary, 7Eleven Gallery, Marianne Boesky Gallery and MoMA PS1 in New York, Richard Telles Fine Art in Los Angeles, Devening Projects + Editions in Chicago, Crac Alsace in Altkirch and Shanaynay in Paris. New York-based gallery Ramiken Crucible also presented a solo booth of his work at Frieze London's Frame section this past October. Coming up in 2013: the UCLA Graduate Open Studios at the New Wight Gallery in Los Angeles in March and a group show at Albert Baronian Gallery in Brussels in May.
