JESSICA DUPUIS AND ALAN DEHMER

For the month of June, FRANK Gallery showcases two artists for whom the physical process of creation is paramount. Ceramicist Jessica Dupuis uses discarded materials and clay slip to make wall-mounted pieces, abstract in form and rich in visual texture, that remind me of vegetation under the sea. And photographer Alan Dehmer's gum bichromate prints imbue landscapes and plant life with a nineteenth-century patina and a side of wabi-sabi ephemerality. In both artists' work, the medium is not the message, but it is the fascinating, inextricable megaphone through which it speaks. —Brian Howe
