Julie Dye

December 12 - June 12, 2010

Neither Here Nor There, 2008, 12.5 x 12.5 inches, Archival Inkjet Photograph

LOGO Projects in conjunction with Ocean Ophthalmology Group is proud to present a suite of self-portraits from photographer Julie Dye. The artist’s showcase will be on display from December 12h, 2009 through June 12th, 2010.

In this suite of six works Dye continues to investigate her preoccupation with the personal anxiety and alienation she feels when provoked by social interactions. Says the artist about her work, “I began this series to explore these feelings and process them through photography. I often find myself feeling incredibly out of place and wanting to disappear into the corner. Situations like these leave me with feelings of disappointment, which I find myself contemplating days later.”  Utilizing strategies of blending and molding to disappear into her environment Dye’s self-portraits create a visual metaphor for the sought after relief of literally “fitting in.”

Julie Dye was born and raised in Seminole, FL.  She received her BFA in photography from the Ringling School of Art and Design in 2004.  After living in New York City for the last five years she recently relocated to St. Petersburg, FL where she is pursuing her career as a photographer and bookbinder.
