Leif Alexander Bernard “Fire Series” photography reception

18 11 2010

Glens Falls photographer Leif Alexander Bernard exhibits his abstract photography at the D.H.B. Thomas Gallery, located on the third floor of The Shirt Factory at the corner of Lawrence and Cooper Streets in Glens Falls, New York.

The show, Fire Series, is the first of four elemental series that he plans. The exhibition opens amidst the Shirt Factory’s festive annual holiday open house with a ‘Meet the Artist’ preview and discussion with Leif on Saturday, November 27 from noon to 3 p.m. An artist’s reception follows on Saturday from 3 to 5 p.m. Refreshments will be served and admission is free. Prints and framed photography will be available for sale. The gallery will also be open for a preview on Friday, November 26, from 5 to 8 p.m. A closing reception is being scheduled for December.

The exhibition is comprised of a series of abstract high-energy photos.

“The images are free flowing, expressive and open,” says Leif. “I am grateful for the element of fire. Its warm and powerful energy is cleansing. You can lose yourself and find yourself in its dancing flames and purifying light. To experience and capture it is a meditative and healing experience for me.”

The artist will also exhibit pieces of other freelance work, including landscape and portrait photography. Currently he is available for fashion pieces, event photography and creative portraits.

“In all of my work, my aim is to really step back and let each gesture unfold naturally. In this environment it becomes a dance with my subject where we create and express whatever is occurring in the grace of the moment,” he says.

A portfolio of his current and past works is on his website: www.LeifAlexanderBernard.com. Prints may be purchased through the site.
