FOUR VISIONS, September 5 to 27, 2020

Four Visions card
Featuring photographers David DeMelim and Joseph Hanlon,
and sculptors Lisa May and Kristine Villeneuve-Topor


David DeMelim

Most of the work presented here comes from “Twelve Months on the Wall” a series of memories recorded at the Seawall in Narragansett Rhode Island. Always in motion, always changing it is not a destination so much as a waypoint, a place to stop and enjoy, a place to recharge between work and home.
My primary interest is in capturing the human experience, not in a single instant, but by capturing the world as we experience it - in a continuous stream of images. The Work presented here makes use of multiple exposures assembled in a panoramic format, to condense an event or experience into a single image. I am attempting to create an image based on how we see and experience the world. I am not interested in capturing the decisive moment, but in recording the flow of events that make up our daily lives. These images are, in effect single, frame movies or storyboards condensed into a single box. To view these images is to playback a memory, to experience the event as if you were there, presented with different points of view to process and explore. My interest is not in showing what something looks like, but in trying to convey the feeling or energy of what it was like to be there.

Joseph Hanlon

My profession was in the restaurant industry, 1985 to 2008. Starting from the bottom as a dishwasher I worked my way up the ladder, prep cook, pantry cook, line cook, kitchen supervisor and kitchen manager. Then 2008 hit and I had back surgery, no longer able to go back into the profession, I was disabled.
After getting over the mental block, I started getting into digital art, which led to photography and man did I love it. Being able to catch a moment a landscape and keep the clean shot or edit it in a program. It was like poetry or writing a novel, I was able to communicate my feelings through photography.
I have always liked writing poetry, leaning towards the somewhat dark side of the scale, morbid thoughts of loss, loneliness and love that can never be tasted. Now photography has stepped in and filled an empty space within me. It gave me a purpose again the opportunity to create in a completely different way.
My dad was an avid hobbyist photographer, at one time he even had a darkroom to develop his own prints. If I could rewind the calendar 30 years, I would have enjoyed the opportunity to share the journey and the art of photography with my him.
My photography is always changing with my moods, bold, soft and a lot of the times somewhere between. Nightmares and Memories is a collection of photographs representing the fears of a memory taking one step closer away from oneself. How the warmth of a memory can fade into a cold nightmare.

The ideas for the work I produce come from cultural influences, foreign and domestic.
If the piece can be made to be functional so it can be helpful as well as an eyeful, so much the better!

Kristine Villeneuve-Topor

I was born and raised in Holyoke, MA. I am a self-taught artist, developing my own style by reading and studying other artists work. I visited many libraries, museums, and galleries. I have been refining my artistic skill for about 33 years.
I absolutely love all kinds of art and styles. The creative process is like an exciting adventure, never knowing where the journey will take me. I sometimes see visions of what I would like to paint. These also include intuition, spirituality, passion, life experiences and so much more. I take lots of photographs of landscapes, buildings, etc. I love to collect stuff, items I find out on the street and many other places to create some interesting pieces.
My preferred medium is oils. Sometimes I can totally switch over to mixed mediums and feel the same way. So, I guess I should say that all my mediums are my favorites.
I breathe and live in my art. I have a deep Faith in my Creator that no matter what, everything will be alright. I also believe that Art is a vital part to the human spirit. It’s an inner life that we all need even though for the most part it is sadly taken for granted. I am truly grateful for this gift that I can share with others. Even if it’s a moment... there’s nothing like touching someone’s heart, mind and spirit. That is why I create art.
