Opening Reception: David Saxe “IMHO”

You’re invited to celebrate the opening reception for David Saxe’s fine art photography exhibition entitled “IMHO”. It will be held at The Robin Rice Gallery located at 234 Warren Street, Hudson, NY.

Saturday, April 27th from 4 pm to 7 pm.

For “IMHO”, Robin Rice curates David Saxe’s 25 years of work to 20 definitive photographs. Hung in her new, untraditional gallery in Hudson, NY, David’s singular photographic vision merges with Rice’s evocative yet alluring multi-room space to envelop your senses, providing a moment to reconsider what a gallery can look and feel like: sensuous, provocative, and intimate.

David Saxe – “Photography has always been the simple act of looking and being inspired to strip the unnecessary elements from the scene and frame the image down in a way to discover what is not apparent on the surface. My photographs are as much about me as what I am seeing:

In Southern California, 2010 is a perfect example of this process of seeing. When I first noticed this scene, it was a simple mural of a whale on a wall. After looking at it for a while I realized that by eliminating the sky and foreground from the image the whale now had an undulating rhythm and movement.

In another image Restaurant Hostess, Palm Beach, FL 2012, I would go to this restaurant every week and sit in the bar behind the reception area. One day, I turned around and saw the back of a woman. Through this process of deductive framing, the image became one of dark shadows rhythmically trickling down her back interwoven with the tattoo of the lizard.

David Saxe was born in Montreal, Québec, Canada in 1943 and studied fine art at l’ecole des Beaux Arts in Montreal. He started taking pictures in 1970, after being influenced by the work of Robert Frank, and Henri Cartier Bresson. About 10 years ago, he decided to take a workshop with Constantine Manos, who liked his work and encouraged him to create a book – “Unfinished Business”, in which he kindly wrote the forward. David has exhibited in Toronto, Canada, and Brescia, Italy and has been featured in the Italian Magazine Zoom, and Black + White Magazine. He has also exhibited in a number of group shows in New York, Paris, Los Angeles, and Montreal.
