Julie Blackmon is showing this month at G. Gibson Gallery in Pioneer Square. You cannot really see her work online; the undercurrent of its tide of bizarreness is a layer of tiny details you can only make out in person in the gallery, leaning a little uncomfortably close to the large prints.

Balthus is one of the weirdest artists in history. There are probably more Balthus references than just these in Blackmon's show—after all, splayed-out girls in living rooms are his specialty. But I give you these two pairs to start.

The show has been extended through July 27.
