Morg Og Barn - Moeder en Kind - Mother and Child by Christaphora Robeers and Erik Leise
Christophora Robeers and Erik Leise are mother and son. This exhibit was created over a thirteen month period and is a double dialog between the subjects, a mother and her child, and the artists, mother and son. Erik Leise photographed the mother and child while Christophora created sculptures, paintings and pen and ink drawings of the subjects.

As put by Christophora in the gallery talk, the subject mother is Swedish and she was comfortable with nudity. The exhibit captures important moments of the changes during pregnancy as well as meaningful circumstances in the subject mother's life. For example, a standing, statuesque painting of the mother holding the infant child is a favorite of hers as during the time she posed for the painting, her own mother was able to stand and walk after battling an illness.

Guests at the opening of the show wrote notes of advice and well wishes to the mother and baby girl, a European tradition. These notes will be sent to the family who now resides in Los Angeles.

Walking Richmond Alleys by Suzanne Starseed

 

Suzanne started this project as a photography documentary of Richmond alleys. However the found objects became as fascinating as the images. She and her friends transformed their dumpster diving finds into artwork and statements.

Suzanne and Christina reflected in the mirror of found objects.
