Christie Olson Out of Your Control

March 29–May 5, 2019

Closing Reception 5–9 p.m. Friday, February 15

The PhotoCenter proudly presents a new exhibit by Christie Olson Out of Your Control opening for Christie Olson's work shows the challenges of young womanhood today. Recently a visitor, a mother who has raised 4 daughters, viewed the images and exclaimed “That's it!,” indicating the reality of this work that she could identify with.

Persona —a brief essay

As I intently viewed the current exhibit of work by Christie Olson, I was reminded that this is the most personally intimate  art ever to grace the PhotoCenter Gallery. 

This led to wondering about how much of the artists' persona is incorporated or represented in their artwork. Consider — 

In photography, as in other arts, to what extent does our persona affect what we choose to include in the viewfinder when  we press the shutter?  And in our choice of subject matter.

Olson has chosen to tell her story with self-portraits, to communicate revelations of herself. 

But beyond that, the work offers a revealing look into aspects of a persona many of us were in a prior age.

"Raw," "edgy," "real" describes her work.

— Nick Argyros
