First Fridays Art Opening: Emma Brodeur & Emmanuel Ndenguebi-Essimi

March 2, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us for wine, cheese and lively conversation as we celebrate the artwork of Emma Brodeur & Emmanuel Ndenguebi-Essimi.

Abstract by Emma Brodeur

About Emma: This show exhibits my abstractions in watercolor and charcoal. Sometimes, the medium catalyzes my explorations of a piece as I balance the division between familiarity and challenge. A bleeding watercolor smear, for example, gives leeway to undiscovered territory. Other times, external factors from the easel such as the folds of fabric or the measures of music allow new concepts to unfold before me and the viewer. In my work, I attempt to find a balance between a carefree, spontaneous approach and methodical obsession. Share with me how you balance this dynamic in your own creative process and perhaps we can learn from each other!

About Emmanuel:  Emmanuel’s show “Tendresse” is a retrospective of his time and work in China that juxtaposes the maniacal precision and collection instinct of the street photographer with the vulnerability and humanity of the subject matter. Ideally the edit is meant to lead the viewer to see members of another culture with tenderness, from human elements to non-human elements.
