Decker’s photographic images are the result of an ongoing inquiry into the possibilities for transformation in the everyday. They celebrate serendipitous findings filtered through a painter’s sensibility. Texture, color, movement and ambiguity of scale come into play in works derived from both natural and inorganic sources. Conceptually, the work is simply about being present. Other ongoing series include portraiture, still life, flora and fauna, and street photography. For a series-in-progress begun January 1, 2011, Decker shoots what she sees every morning from her Westbeth perch overlooking the Hudson River. A solo show of her "From My Perch" series was on exhibit at the Manhattan Borough President's Office Gallery October 1-31, 2014. Decker's new series, "The Other Side of the Mirror," will be featured during "Spring Together," a dance, music, poetry, visual art, theater & film concert on April 10, 11 and 12, 2015 at the Medicine Show Theatre, New York City. http://bethsollandcompany.org/spingt.html
