Sharing / Le Partage Bernard Marenger

January 18-31 2018 Opening January 19 from 6-9pm

Urbain insolite copie.JPG

Bernard Marenger est photographe professionnel depuis plus de 45 ans. Il a fait ses débuts dans l’un des plus prestigieux studio de photographie publicitaire à Montréal pour ensuite ouvrir son propre studio au centre-ville. Il a collaboré à plusieurs des meilleures campagnes publicitaires au Québec et au Canada pour des clients aussi prestigieux que Postes Canada, Imperial Tobacco, Labatt, Rona, SAQ etc.

Cette expérience a conduit Bernard Marenger à une démarche artistique très personnelle; à une vision plus sensible de la société et aussi, de la nature et des êtres qui la façonnent.

Doué d’une grande réceptivité à notre environnement, Bernard Marenger a su en capter vivement toute l’intensité.

2017 in Review

2017 saw us renaming the main gallery, changing from the Dylan Ellis Gallery to the Connections Gallery. This name change reflects our mandate to “connect” artists, curators and gallerists.

Thank you to all of the photographers who showed such an amazing variety of images.

What is your process

I mix two different 19th century’s  techniques to create my images.Albumen, salted paper, Van Dyke Brown and Cyanotype are combined to create the final image. By preparing the papers and chemicals I use to produce those images I embrace chance as a co-author of my work. As much as I understand how the chemicals may interact, I do not choose when and where it happens.

What is your process?
For this particular work that I submitted, it happens to be the final part to a 3 part series I started. In this series, the ones before this one, they are the starting points. Those images began with a model sitting in front of a projection screen which I then projected a short animation that I made or the default mac screensaver. Both of which had to do with spontaneous action of what is being projected, along with the illumination and highlighting of the model’s face and/or body. But for this piece I took photos from the previous ones and then projected that on to my models. While doing so I had them either interact or react to themselves being projected which was then photographed.

Botticelli Runner 3338 web

What is your process
I create my photographs of women from the perspective of concept. The woman, her place and the combination of the two can spark my ideas. I do not concentrate on photographic technique but let the concept and the situation develop the technique. It may be there is a special source of light or simply bright daylight. It may be a choice between a focus on the woman from a distance immersed in her place or a focus on her portrait. In my series Pixie’s World, the place of Pixie’s bachelor apartment was a given, but it was the accident of the single-source light that created mysterious shadows and brilliant highlights. Combined with the light were the idiosyncratic personality of Pixie and the collision of her art and body within the space.
The series Cathedral focused explicitly on the concept of an elderly urban woman in a silver gown returned to her rural roots and photographed in her family barn. The woman’s white hair, the molten silver gown and the light that filtered through the spaces between the boards of the barn once again created a unique environment of light and luminescence, which greatly shaped the photographs.
The two series Ancestral and Botticelli Runner were shot in bright daylight. In Ancestral the central technique was the conceptual combination of the woman in the Baie de Chaleur moonscape rocks that dwarfed her, counterpointed with her posed against the ancestral homestead in intimate portrait relationship.
The young woman who is a Botticelli vision with her complexion and red hair is a long
distance runner. I was intrigued by the contrast of the delicacy of my Botticelli vision
against the hard reality of her long distance running discipline. Softness and hardness –
rigidity of track and flow of beach sand as running places – softness of flowing red hair and pink velvet gown against the rigidity of developed muscle. These elements became the focus of the photographs.

What is your process?

 My process is lead by experimentation and materials.  I try to allow for the experience of making to inform the final result, and encourage spontaneity to reveal itself.  This itself is a challenge for me, as in most aspects of my life I most often find myself trying to control as much as possible.  By challenging myself to relinquish control, I find myself walking hand-in-hand with my work as opposed to me leading it and forcing it down a certain path.  As I work I meaning and content develops itself.
