Portraits of place, self and obsession:
Breonne DeDecker, Meg Turner, Colin Roberson
December 6-31, 2014
Opening: Saturday Dec 6 + 13, 6-9pm
Artists talk: Wednesday, Dec 17, 6:30pm
Portraits of place, self and obsession features new work by three photographers exploring portraiture – of place, of personal narrative, and of sexually fraught intimacy. This show brings together Breonne DeDecker’s dedicated photographing of the communities and landscape along Airline highway with Meg Turner’s 13 years of semi annual documenting her sense of self and mood, (taken as photobooth strips and recreated as wet collodion plates) and Colin Roberson’s six months of nocturnal photographing and silver gelatin printing. The work is a narrative he describes with a quote from Balzac: “[You] are on a road that leads to ruin. At this moment I still feel sorry for you; before long I shall have forgotten you, not so much on account of what you have done already as for that which you inevitably will do.”
There will be an additional opening for the Second Saturday St. Claude Art Walk, on Dec 13th from 6-9pm. A working photobooth will be in the gallery.
