About

digital C-print, edition of 10 30 x 20 inches unframed This contemporary c-print pictures a classic 1950's housewife in a beautiful pink dress and black high heels in a floral wallpapered bedroom lustfully looking at muscular models in men's health magazines. Assorted phallic like vegetables further perpetuate the representation of the housewife's lust for the hunky male models. Her dress is slightly undone in the back while her black high heels dangle from her swinging feet. As she relaxes on the pale navy blue bedspread a classic depiction of Jesus Christ hangs overhead, although his eyes look away from the housewife's sinful implications. The beautiful imagery mixed with the suggested narrative provides the viewer with an ironic and comical twist to the typical representation of a 1950's housewife. About work: Photography as a medium has a dual character. Since its introduction, artists have used it to produce both art as well as document the world around them. For Chicago artist Newbold Bohemia, photography is a little bit of both: his photo series have documented real life issues, presented in staged, then manipulated images from his imagination. In his playful yet devious new series, “In an Ideal World,” Bohemia visualizes the story of a rebellious 1950s woman in the domestic world. Even the name Newbold Bohemia is a fabrication. The artist’s namesake serves as a reminder to create art dedicated to the pillars of Bohemian society: Truth, Beauty, Freedom and Love. All of these are present in his “In an Ideal World” series, set in a beautiful, idyllic version of the 1950s, where a blonde femme fatale-housewife comes to terms with life’s truths. As he captures her day to day chores, Bohemia comments on the not-so-idyllic reality of gender roles, and his heroine’s oppression and anger. Newbold Bohemia currently lives and works in Chicago. His award-winning work has been exhibited throughout the United States.
