Learn about Paul’s creative process in the development of his unique artwork and the origins of his very unique style.  The definition of realism takes on a new meaning when the paintings are shaped in perspective because a ‘realistic’ painting in a square or rectangle relies on the acceptance by the viewer that they are looking at an illusion presented to them in an arbitrarily imposed shape. But when a painting is shaped to look like the object represented when seen in perspective, such as a painting of a door – which actually opens and closes like a real door – then the illusion of reality is intensified. Perhaps it would be more accurate to describe this increased realism as ‘supra-realism’.

He presently is exhibiting with De Twee Pauwen, The Hague, The Netherlands and Bel-Air Fine Art, Miami.  Paul has shown in more than 200 Group Exhibitions, including: The 57th ‘Bienale di Venezia’, Italy, 2017 – Bel-Air Fine Art, Paris, France Maddox Gallery, London, Galerie Blondel, Paris, France, Michelle Rosenfeld Gallery, New York City, Scott Richards Contemporary Art, San Francisco, National Centre for Contemporary Art, Vladikavkaz, Russia.  Paul has participated in 36 Solo Exhibitions since 1987 and Over 61 International Art Fairs since 1985. Rotterdam Contemporary, The Netherlands,, Art Karlsruhe, Germany (solo), Moniker, London, Art.Fair Cologne, Germany (Solo shows 2014 – 2015), SCOPE, Basel, Switzerland (Solo show 2013).  https://www.saatchiart.com/PaulC

Heidi studied pottery, at Piedmont Virginia Community College and then again at Daytona Community College before attending the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale, FL where she studied graphic design. Her art training became invaluable in her art career working with interior designers all over South Florida creating custom, commissioned art and murals for their clients.

Before Caryl Pomales Offers 3 Day Workshop At New Studio For Visual Arts, She Reminds Us Why Artists Should Never Stop Taking Classes!

Caryl Pomales understands that creativity is not a quantifiable skill that can ever be officially mastered. It is a skill and a muscle that you must exercise to maintain, sharpen, and keep limber. Living a creative life is a marathon of continually cultivating curiosity and artistry. A runner does not quit stretching and training after completing a marathon; nor should the painter ever quit expanding his or her skill set. The Rickie Report shares her exciting announcement: Caryl will host a 3 Day workshop in October, PAWS- “Painting Animals with Spirit” at the New Studio For Visual Arts in Tequesta!  We give you all of the details, including a discount, how to receive her blog, and some sneak peeks!

“Lilac Breasted Roller” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

Caryl tells The Rickie Report,  “There is much to gain from being a perpetual student of the arts, continually participating in studies, reading, practicing, and taking classes. Amateurs and professional artists alike should continue their painting pursuits in a classroom, and here are just a few reasons why”.

 

  • Working on your craft. While you may have works displayed in galleries, sold dozens of paintings, or taught your own course, artistry is your athletic pursuit. You’ve completed your “marathon,” and it’s time to stretch and train for your next race!

 

  • Opening your mind to a different perspective and technique you may not have experienced, thought about, or mastered. There is always room to learn and adopt new styles, adding to your artistic toolbox. This will, without a doubt, help you create adventurous and dynamic work.

 

 

  • Renewed attentiveness. Sometimes, after being away from a class for a while, the artist can start to lose some of their creative curiosity. A learning environment constantly pushes the artist to grow, experiment, try new things, and look at the world a new way. Returning to a course is a great way to revive that crucial skill, reopening the eyes, heart, and mind.

 

 

  • Kindness among fellow artists. A workshop or class is an incredible opportunity to meet other painters at all stages in their lives and careers. Having a solid network of fellow artists is incredibly fulfilling, and one of the best places to meet this community is at a workshop!

 

 

  • Striving to further cultivate your artistry by never settling into complacency. Those who pursue the constant betterment of their craft have the most satisfying and inspiring careers.

 

 

  • Heal, relax, sooth, and relieve stress. Classes are, in addition to being productive, wonderfully enjoyable! They are a great place to set an artistic “reset” button and enjoy a creative and supportive learning environment.

 

 

  • Ownership of your talent and skill. Classes remind you both what you know and are remarkably skilled at as well as you can improve upon, and give you the opportunity to work on the latter.

 

 

  • Painting, and doing what you ultimately love, amongst others who feel the same way!

 

 

“Juicey Fruit” by Caryl Pomales
