Still Life Photography

Mila Medina

Opening Reception: Friday, February 21, 6:00-8:30 pm

February 21–March 22, 2014

This exhibit of still life photography contains a remarkable variety of objects and images, including Venetian masks, white hydrangeas, Turkish Delight, an antique samovar, for example. At times these objects and their careful arrangement before the lens evoke dramatic life events and hint at complex narratives; at others, they immerse the viewer in a simpler contemplation of the here-and-now.

Throughout, each photograph maximizes the possibilities of color, texture, light, and space to make us pause and look. Every object is treated with an intense, fresh focus – a careful and extreme lucidity – to appear before us as never before.

Mila Medina lives in Bethesda, MD.

New Paintings by Fabrice Plantard

Opening Reception: Thursday, March 27, 6:00-8:30 pm

March 27–May 4, 2014

For Fabrice, summer 2013 was filled with life-changing developments and turning point moments. One of them happened when his best friend visited from France. Painting side by side with her reintroduced watercolors into his art after a 25-year absence. At that time, his quest for creating greater translucence took a new step while painting with his friend. He plays with the lightness of watercolor and how it complements his longstanding passion for a mix of texture in his work. New dimensions with a “behind the window” effect are also created through the selective use of poured resin.

Join Fabrice and take a look behind his windows from March 27 to May 4 while his pieces are on display at Caramel.
