In his black and white photographs, Clergue manages to capture poignantly the pursuit of life and liberty and a passion in the people's expression.

Snow. Sounds are suddenly muted. The noise of traffic in the cities is no more and in the mountains the snow-laden air has dampened the monotonous click-clack of the ski lifts. Snow. And the landscape is transformed into a graphic. Snow. And suddenly abstraction is a reality, as whimsical and as beautiful as it is firm and relentless.

Over the past two decades, Khedoori has developed a practice consisting of intricately rendered drawings and paintings. Ranging in subject matter from abstractions to architecture to nature, her works are often devoid of a background and placed on large-scale paper supports. In recent years, the artist has transitioned from paper to canvas, creating more intimately scaled oil on canvas works that depict static images of objects and views, oftentimes of that which is just beyond our reach, equally enigmatic and oneiric.
