Light as brilliant as silver and shadow as dark as ink flow smooth over the portraits and fragments of friends, family, and strangers in the works of Gray Briechle. The artist employs a rarely used 19th century wet-plate process, the Collodion. The result of Briechle's works is striking and memorable, brooding with intrigue and infused with intimacy. These are the real moments of life: the delicate beginnings, the resilience of youth, the ferocity of pubescence, and the weathering of age. We are captivated, stopped dead in our tracks by the moments caught. Briechle's work is true humanity framed- the real, the raw, the beautiful and even cruel nature of life.

In the absence of an audience, how does artwork function? This is question is at the center of Gregory Vershbow's series Art in a Liminal Space. Vershbow explores the basements, storage spaces, and restoration sites of artwork. Even in the space between exhibitions, when surrounded with scaffolding or wrapped in package the power, beauty, and grandeur of the art persists. The potency of the work even when partially concealed or obstructed from view resonates in a powerful way. We feel to have a private moment with the art object and an intimacy unusually enjoyed. Our curiosity is heightened by our inability to fully access the works.

A recent MFA graduate of Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Vershbow has already enjoyed success, has exhibited along the East Coast and is among the J. Paul Getty, Boston Athaneum, and Art Institute of Chicago's permanent collections.

Artists' Reception: Philippe Vermès at Esther Woerdehoff Gallery

For more than twenty years Philippe Vermès has taken portraits of his photography colleagues. The frames are elegant and direct and taken before a simple backdrop of his moveable large format studio. The project developed over time and began to reveal more than frames of famous photographers but a generation of photographers, notably those from 1970 - 1995, to which Philippe Vermès himself was tied. The true honest familiarity revealed comes through with power and on the whole the works began to function more like a family tree or family portrait than independent frames.

The work takes a step further- each photographer's portrait is paired with a work of their own, an icon of their creation. Author and image appear as one and we begin to dig deeper into the personality and philosophy of each and every depicted visage. The value of the pairing becomes more revealing yet when we learn the photographers themselves chose one image from their life's work. Usually behind the lens the photographers, their work, and its resonance are brought to the forefront with this exciting and revealing exhibition.

Large scale works by artistic duo Jeff Charbonneau and Eliza French as well as intimate pieces by Jennifer Hudson come together to compose the intensely narrative exhibition. The overall tone is fantastic with stories based in memory, personal and imagined history and a charge of spiritual and symbolic symbolism.

Jeff Charbonneau and Eliza French have been working together since 2004. Each share overlaps in the arts and entertainment industries. Charbonneau's background is in music, anthropology, and photography and French's in screenwriting and Art History. The combination is powerful and dynamic. As a team Charbonneau/French creates installation-based images. The approach leads to an investment in the frames; a level of truth emerges, for the instant depicted did occur.

The series Massillon finds root in family folklore, and the title from the city where French's great-grandmother lived. At times somber, melancholic, even destructive, and in others dream-like and enchanted each piece is woven with powerful poetics. Playground has a greater sense of idealism. Balance, rhythm, proportion, and shape set tones for more calm and stable sentiment. Even in a darker works there is a sense of greater stability, for the height of emotion, the point of action, even if overwhelming, seems to have passed. The calm at times may be eery, but there is nothing left to fear.

Jennifer Hudson's work draws inspiration from faith and intimacy. The works are small and precious. Their size causes viewers to draw near and the viewer is enveloped into each frame of the three series presented: Baptism, Flora, and Medic. Flora is elegant with thorns and reneders the figure almost object or amulet-like and Baptism engages the stages from dispair and guilt to prayer, commitment, reconciliation and eventually grace. These two series do borrow from and recall religious iconography, pattern, and form. Medic shifts a bit and looks at the intimate, the fragile, the temporary human state. Strange somber scenes seem caught between past and future and recall difficult stages in life, including illness, death, and pain. Strange machines, tubes, recording devices, support systems surround the figures depicted and we do believe in the impossible mechanics and are in touch with the very human desire to preserve the body and the spirit.
