Marjorie Gillette Wolfe

 

In The Whole Wide World, Marjorie Wolfe explores beyond the visible world in a series of archival pigment photographs. As in medieval altarpieces, her composite photographs use separate images to create a single view. Her panoramas, which don’t reveal themselves as true composites, likewise “lead the observer outside the edges of the single frame, showing us more than what our eyes let us see, but what we know is there.”

 

While Wolfe’s collection of images looks out to the whole world, Frank Bruckmann brings the view back in, to the more intimate settings of Breaking Bread. For this collection of stunning oil paintings, Bruckmann was inspired by the Urban Dictionarydefinition: “To break bread is to affirm trust, confidence, and comfort with an individual or group of people. Breaking bread has a notation of friendliness and informality, derived from the original meaning regarding sharing the loaf.”
