­Incorporating  painting into my photography and using special transfer techniques I  give them the look of a colorized daguerreotype.
Adding a single  color to the entire image, the color then becomes as important as the  image. I’m mostly draw to French Baroque and 19 century American  landscape painting. The vibrancy of the colors and the plexiglass  presentation gives this series a contemporary sleek and plastic  feel…Combining the old with new I reinterpret classical imagery into a  modern, original and enigmatic aesthetic.Emmanuelle Gauthier New York, 2006­

New Photography works along with works on paper from collaborative artists team: Petra zmirk, and Moriceau. BIOGRAPHY WRITTEN BY RICHARD VINE ­Emmanuelle  Gauthier Born in 1971, Emmanuelle Gauthier is a French fine arts  photographer who has lived and worked in New York since 1994. She  studied photography at the Ecole des Beaux ­Arts in Paris, as well as  film structure and production techniques at the Université de Paris  VIII.
Her training also includes history of photography classes with  George Pitts, the photo editor of Vibe magazine. Thereafter, working on  independent productions, she assisted director Eric Ceret on his  documentary Diaries and director Mark Humphrey on numerous music videos.
 As a freelance photographer,Emmanuelle Gauthier has contributed to  numerous publications such as : Citizen k, Spoon, Trace, Zing, The  Fadder, Trax, Madame Figaro, Dazed & Confused, and Pure.
Among her commissions are Ad Campaigns for Audemars Piguet, Fred Sathal, and Totem.Emmanuelle  Gauthier’s images–of airports, clubs, city streets, and glamorous  youths–often imbue their subjects with a dreamy allure. Her figures  smoke and drink in louche surroundings; some pose with clothes laid on  top of their bodies rather than worn normally. All seem too hip for love  or grief. Yet their bohemian chic is inseparable from a pervading sense  of desolation–as if the emptiness of the jetways had entered every  aspect of life for these young urban nomads.
Most recently,  Emmanuelle Gauthier completed a compilation video of interviews with  several New York­ based artists with whom she has an aesthetic affinity:  Andres Serrano, Dennis Oppenheim, Scott Hug,and others.Here  scenes from the urban environment, including the living and working  spaces of the artists, are punctuated by shots of a sleek building lobby  and highly reflective revolving door*emblems, in effect, of the  hardness, gloss, and transitoriness of life in New York*s often  impersonal milieu.
Emmanuelle Gauthier has previously exhibited in  New York City at Marcus Ritter Gallery, Nikolai Fine Art Gallery,  Egizio’s project, Cynthia Broan galleries. And in Hong Kong at the  Institute of Matter gallery.Richard Vine

  Remy Toledo Gallery/Projects
is pleased to present an exhibition of three young artists “Candy for Dinner”Emmanuelle Gauthier, Vadis Turner, and Hu Ren Yi.
This dinner party has been cooked in America , China and France .
 French photographer Emmanuelle Gauthier presents a different kind of  candy, one of sweet seduction. In her latest series Plastic Baroque,  techniques of digital manipulation create a refined and glamorous body  of work. Layering lush imagery from European and American painting,  Gauthier creates contemporary photographs of intricate beauty. Her  composition is simultaneously dense and fluid with rich coloration and  painterly quality as she explores favorite subjects in different hues.  Creating a dreamy allure the images are charged with a Baroque  sensibility, seducing the viewer with fairytale settings and subtle  luminosity.
Vadis Turner exhibits cupcakes and a tea party  constructed from kitchen materials and sewing goods. Influenced by  generations of southern women who reigned in the kitchen and sparkled at  society events. The immanent artist was expected to learn the ways of a  proper lady, folding her napkin properly and writing gracious thank you  notes. Such traditions have been replaced by fast food and superficial  entertainment, which becoming our legacy. Many now eat candy for dinner.
 This exhibition will be the first viewing in New York of paintings by  the young Chinese artist Hu Ren Yi. His candy color like paintings are  cynical and playful with undertones of sexuality, family and politics.  They are constructed simply, although the concept is much deeper than  what physically appears on the surface of the canvas. The viewer is  engaged by the dream like quality of the images. There is an obvious  influence of the tradition of Chinese painting that merges with the  contemporary.

Nikolai Fine Art Gallery Photographs­ Edition of 3PHOTOGRAPHY2 sizes available:
30 X 40 Inches­  ( 76.2X 101.6 C m )20 X 24 Inches­ ( 50.8X 61 C m )“Syrup” series is available on nine colors in 20 X 23 Inches, and 40 X 46 inches for wall installation­. Artist Statement­ “Interventions”
 Video art together with photography examine the parallels and liaison  between history and truth. The two mediums address issues of  misinterpretations, miscommunications and language barriers .
Other  themes such as life and death, human rights and the rights of animals  are very close to my mission of wanting to make a positive change in our  life and, give back to this world elements of beauty and wonder.
 Characterized by a visionary force, the works traces a sense of tragedy  and fragility. Inspired, intricately and sensuously styled, the art  video titled “Lace” presents lustrous images voluntarily slowed down:  capturing and contemplating the moment…all in a surreal film speed. It  translates dreamy and eery qualities to movement decomposition and into a  different environmental transposition. Against a curtain of violent  rupture/ isolation, and a will for using art as an export for social  progress and awareness, the images aesthetics import a wide range of  poetic interpretations. Experiencing with new software techniques and  digital interventions the photography juxtapositions or layers deepens  and twists meanings.
The moving images are mixed in with music  composed with fragmented sample sources running across cultures,  time and sensibilities. The piece highlights and emphasizes the  importance of cultural differences, the richness and depth of cross  cultural exchanges as well as tolerance, and dignity.Emmanuelle Gauthier  NYC, 2006ARTIST STATEMENT ­I  have always been interested in exploring the juxtaposition and  convergence of illusion and reality. My photography and film incorporate  many references: video, music, cinematographic special effects,  set design, architecture, poetry and reverie. I’m interested in linear  readings as well as the possibilities of subjective reinterpretations of  events that have shaped our realities. Luminous and ethereal the images  are charged with a sense of longing, hope and a dreamy allure. Vibrancy  of color imbue the photographs with a warm and sublime glow. In my  process I embrace surrealistic techniques and theories. Filmmaker’s Luis  Bunuel and Jean Cocteau have informed and inspired my work. Through my  films, Paintings and photography, I capture the intimate beauty of  the details of life exploring the interconnections and the fragility of  existence.Emmanuelle Gauthier, New York City,2004 

ARTIST STATEMENT Art  videos titled Dolphins, Transitoriness ( included in the British Museum  collection), dolphins, effervescence pills, orthodox church, speak with  images mixed with sound, in an elaborate montage that emulates one’s  imagination.
And encourages one’s of having their own  interpretations, through imaginative stimulus… Using music, editing  techniques, repetitive images, an original concept, and the utilization  of storytelling notions.
The ensemble of my photography works is wrapped up in a diary style survey of my aesthetic preferences.
Made out of attentive observations where my life events have transported me.
The different work series ultimately come together in a reverie collage.
 In an omnipresent and also very direct attempt to unveil life’s deep  mysteries the work is mostly revolving around the themes of loneliness,  psychological states, betrayals, fantasy and reality realms, blurring  system beliefs.
It is translated visually with an imagery of empty  melancolic interiors, extreme close ups of human forms, close ups of  objects, exteriors, abstract environment which are emotionally charged  with a range of expressed and repressed feelings.
The photos tell  the story of social changes throughout decades, and freezes time into a  kaleidoscope of photos mixed with newspaper clippings, journal entries  and the use of mixed media. Individual portrait’s placed together to  suggest a single narrative in an exhaustive editing process; that aim at  a critical, long thought juxtaposition of photographs. In an inherent  artistic logic, the ensemble of the work thrive to make people  think. Using subjectives point of views designed to haunt them for a  long time.Emmanuelle Gauthier
New York, September 2005 Aesthetics of Belonging ­
Curated by Kasia Kay­ Scope Artfair­ NYC 2007­Layered  and complex ideas of gender, identity, belonging, sexuality and  intimate narratives are explored in selected artworks. Presented here  short­films examine issues of relationships, the construction of female  and her belonging to society, and in relationship. Few works with focus  on aesthetics of belonging to space, allude to notions of absence and  presence, a sense of place and of no place, volume and void, notions of  home, as well as personal freedom and belonging to a pre­constructed  world. Artists included: Kristin Anderson, Sandra Bermudez, Emmanuelle  Gauthier, David A. Parker, Nick & Shelia Pye, Alicja Karska and  Aleksandra Went, and Chris Wasko.The photographs, paintings , and  collages of Emmanuelle Gauthier are each different manifestations of  the same desire, to communicate the basic mystery of life. Though the  artist works in a range of different mediums, she never limits her  esthetic choices to one type of image at a time, nor does she restrain a  natural inclination to exhibit them together, creating tangents of  recognition. Much of Gauthier’s imagery comes from media sources that  may include high school text books, events reported on TV news programs,  as well as from her own senses. Combining first­ and second­hand  images, Gauthier simultaneously offers up a critique on the nature of  meaningful encounter and on those sources of knowledge which contribute  to it.The many specific images she portrays do not immediately  answer the questions they pose, but provide further details–further  complexities–that open up the perspective of the viewer. Rather  than seeking a highly focused and morally specific imagery, the artist  expresses the broadest possible spectrum, which in turn provides more  context, and more answers that ironically enter into a dialectic with  existence.David Gibson
