Whale Of A Tale

Christine Baczek

I have lived and studied in Utah, Chile, Italy, Chicago, Santa Fe, and China. My work uses my surroundings and daily life as points of departure for my imagery. My research and practice focus on analog and alternative photographic processes like cyanotype, platinum/palladium, chromoskedasic sabattier, film, etc. I use this expertise in historical photographic processes to record the intangible and manipulate light in a real sense. I have exhibited widely, including the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, Nox Contemporary, Finch Lane, Granary Art Center, Panopticon Gallery, Kimball Art Center and PhotoBistro. I have received a Samuel H. Kress Foundation Scholarship, a Utah Arts Council Traveling Grant, and an artist-in-residency at the Rio Mesa Center. My work is in the collections of the Utah Museum of Fine Arts, Savannah College of Art and Design, Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art, Salt Lake County Collection, and important private entities in Utah. I have worked broadly with the artistic community of Utah as an artist, the Collection Photographer for the Utah Museum of Fine Arts, Exhibitions Director for the Kimball Art Center, and a writer for 15 Bytes.

In 2018 my partner, David Hyams, and I opened Luminaria.
