Isabel Gouveia Installation Art

 

 

Isabel Gouveia uses photography, printmaking, painting, drawing and sculpture to convey a sense of accelerated environmental entropy. Her practice lies with errors and default appropriations, and also subverting processes, using intuition and chance to create art. She uses her Canon MP620 printer as a tool, developing a language through digital printing manipulations.

She says: “My work and research have focused on the changing landscape, environmental awareness and the more recent effects of globalization. As an artist, I use diverse non traditional materials and digital processes to create provisional drawings, paintings, and printed works that respond to the impacts of accelerated entropy.”

Gouveia was born in Brazil, and lives and works in Lake Worth, FL. She graduated as an Industrial Designer from the Arts Foundation Armando Alvares Penteado in São Paulo, and earned an MFA from Florida Atlantic University in 2014.

Gouveia was Artist In Resident 2015/16 in Printmaking at the Armory Art Center, West Palm Beach, and at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts in 2016, Amherst, VA. She continues as an instructor at the Armory.

Gouveia was awarded the South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship 2016/2017; Best in Show for the 54th Annual Juried Exhibition at Masur Art Museum, Monroe, LA; the 2014 Friedland Project Grant and Esther Saylor Rothenberger Award; Best in Show at the County Contemporary All Media Juried Show, Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, Lake Worth, FL; and a Merit Scholarship at Ox-Bow Art School in Saugatuck, MI.

Gouveia also took part in the prestigious International Print Center NY, “New Prints-Autumn” exhibition (2011-12); a 2016 solo exhibition “Processed Entropy” at The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation Art Center, Takoma Park, MD; “Existence” at the Francie Bishop Good Studio/ Project Room, Girls’ Club, Fort Lauderdale, FL; “Opposing Futures” at The Projects in FatVillage, Fort Lauderdale; a City Intervention at the 19th Bienal International de Arte de Cerveira, Portugal; and “More Women Painting” at Design Sublime, Miami. She recently participated in “Fold It” at University of Texas, Río Grande Valley, TX, and a solo exhibition “Byproducts” at IS Project in Fort Lauderdale. Her two person exhibition, with Rod Faults, will open at FAU Theatre Lab on April 11.

Behind-The-Scenes At A Batik Workshop With Caren Hackman

What happens after a Rickie Report article announcing a class or workshop is published?  On March 2, 2018, we published “Cynthia Head And Sally Pearson Offer 1 Day Workshops To Create A Take-Home Batik Painting”.  Today, Caren Hackman reports on her own and other workshop attendees’ experiences and shares their exciting results in this article.  The Rickie Report shares this behind-the-scenes experience with our readers!

 

BEHIND   THE   SCENES    WITH  CAREN  HACKMAN:

 

Watercolor Batik on Rice Paper  1 day Workshop

 

 

Caren Hackman at Batik Workshop

 

It is great to get out of my own studio and take workshop to learn new skills or a new process. A one-day-Saturday workshop, suited me fine. I invited my sister, Naomi, friend Mara and her daughter Sarah, to take a watercolor-batik workshop with me.

 

I learned about the workshop through The Rickie Report. Rickie’s initial article about the workshop stated that all participants, regardless of experience, would be able to create a stunning work of art. The workshop was instructed by artists Sally Browning Pearson and Cynthia Head, and took place in Sally’s well-lit Port St. Lucie studio. The skill level of the 6 participants spanned from experienced watercolorists, to individuals with almost no painting experience. For the designs, Cindy and Sally offer tried and true patterns or the option to create your own design. I chose to use my own design.

 

I asked several of the workshop participants why they had chose to attend.  Barbara shared, “I was looking for something fun and I know Sally, so I knew this would be fun”.  Both Mara, an artist and instructor and Kendra, a longtime student of Sally’s, said that they were hoping the workshop would jumpstart some new creative endeavors.

 

The project begins by drawing the image on rice paper that is shot through with Mylar threads. I don’t want to give away too many of the secrets of this wonderful process, but there is a point when we crumpled our beautiful, delicate projects into fist sized balls!

 

 

Barb and Mara crumbling their paper

 

After the crumbling and another watercolor wash, we ironed the artwork to remove all of the wax. The results were delightful and varied. Each workshop participant adhered their rice paper art to a 16” x 20” stretched canvas support. I skipped this stage because I wanted to I attached my watercolor batik to a canvas scroll, as I’ve been doing for all my YogaPainter artworks.

 

 

As the workshop progressed, I asked the two least experienced “artists” in our group what they thought of their projects.  Naomi said, ” I was anxious about taking this workshop because I am a perfectionist, but I am not an artist. I absolutely love what I made”!  Sarah told me, “This is the best piece of art that I have ever created”!

What Is A Book? Jaffe Center For Book Arts Offers Workshops, Classes And Tours. Make Your Own Book On April 28th

The Jaffe Center for Book Arts is located at Florida Atlantic University’s Wimberly Library in Boca Raton, Florida. The Rickie Report wants to thank Paula Marcus for bringing this gem to our attention. An excursion to the Center gave us a lot of food for thought: What IS a book? Director, John Cutrone, introduces visitors to a bevy of possibilities. The Rickie Report shares an overview of the Center and suggests you ( individually or with a small group) take a tour or sign up for some of the fascinating classes. Spread the word – Books are here in all shapes, sizes, materials — and beyond your imagination!  Sign up to create your own book on April 28th!  Details below – register now!

 

 

THE ESSENTIAL FOCUS OF THE COLLECTION IS ON ARTISTS’ BOOKS

777 Glades Road Boca Raton, Florida 33431   561.297.0226  

 

 

Books As Aesthetic Objects

Arthur and Mata Jaffe donated their collection of books as aesthetic objects, built for over 50 years, to FAU in 1998. Rather than being the end of something, that donation was an inspired beginning, garnering an enthusiastic group of loyal supporters that grows with each passing year. Arthur was a graduate of Penn State University and was a partner in Jaffe Department Stores (Ohio, Michigan, and Pennsylvania) before he and Mata moved to Boca Raton in the 1980s. Mata died in 2001, soon after the Jaffe Collection opened, but Arthur continued to build the collection until his death in 2015––a task that Director John Cutrone continues to this day.

There is great breadth to this collection. It encompasses not just artists’ books and limited editions, but also books that just appealed to the collecting sensibilities of the Jaffes. As such, there is much here that would be found in traditional libraries.

There is great focus given to the artists’ book and on all aspects of the Book Arts: artists using the book as a means of artistic expression, fine bindings, limited edition printings, hand paper making and paper decoration, and indeed any of the handcrafts that artisans use to create books.

BOOK ARTS CLASS

BOOK ARTS 101: Vernal
Instructor John Cutrone
Saturday Afternoon, April 28, 2018
1 to 4:30 PM

Jaffe Center for Book Arts at FAU’s Wimberly Library
Book Arts Gallery, Letterpress Studio 351H, & Bindery 350C

Class Limit: 18 (you must register ahead of time!)
Tuition schedule: Self-determined
(Tuition is by open donation to JCBA’s Education Fund––you choose what you’d like to give.)

 

Become a book artist for a day through this three and a half hour immersion in the Jaffe Center for Book Arts. We’ll begin with a screening of a 7-minute video that will introduce you to Arthur Jaffe and the Jaffe Center for Book Arts and the amazing collection of artists’ books that is at its core. We’ll follow this with an in-depth viewing of some of the artists’ books in the collection––books that will entertain, inspire, and astound. And since spring is in the air, we’ll be sure to bring a few appropriately vernal books into the mix. Expect a little springtide story or two, as well, from the instructor’s cache of Convivio Dispatches from Lake Worth: perhaps the tale of the fearful ushers at St. Bernard’s and the April Fool’s Day paper cup tower at Minnie’s Diner.

 

 

 

After a leisurely break for coffee and tea and treats, we’ll move on to the JCBA Letterpress Studio, where each participant will print a sheet of paper from type set by hand from JCBA’s collection of historic wood type. These sheets will be the covers for the books we’ll make, a brief history of the book arts that we’ll bind by hand in the Single Signature Pamphlet stitch, a simple bookbinding technique that you can use again and again in your own book projects. You’ll go home with a book you made yourself––one that you can read as sleep calls later that night, as you reflect on the new outlook on books (and maybe even life) that you’ve found earlier in the day at JCBA. “For there is great joy in knowing how to do things.” All levels.

 

 

 

Instructor:

John Cutrone is Director of the Jaffe Center for Book Arts. He is a graduate of the MFA in the Book Arts Program a the University of Alabama. Aside from his work at JCBA, he is also a writer and a partner in Lake Worth’s Convivio Bookworks, a book arts studio specializing in limited edition letterpress printed books and broadsides (www.conviviobookworks.com). He is the author of the Convivio Book of Days blog, which explores the quirkier side of seasonal traditions, encouraging us to live the ceremony of each day (www.conviviobookworks.com/blog).

Lucinda Linderman “Self Portrait”

 

Lucinda Linderman, a native to Chattanooga, Tennessee, is a recognized environmental artist and environmental art curator living and working in Miami, Florida. She explains: “As consumers, we purchase, use, and throw things away, never thinking of the items again. Looking at this linear production, I collect industrial and post consumer packaging, which becomes the building blocks of my sculptures.

She shares, “This material, disregarded by many, has its own history of travel from factory to store, being created to be thrown away. I highlight the inherent value, leaving traces of what was, transforming the material into something new, playful, through my hands adding value to these discarded materials”.

 

 

 

Lucinda Linderman “Letter To The Editor”

 

 

Lucinda Linderman holds an MFA from the University of Miami in Sculpture and a B.A. in Biology. She has been a full time artist with works exhibited in juried shows since 2001. From 2001 until 2006, she worked as a master apprentice to renowned constructivist sculptor John Henry, where both her aesthetic sense and technical skills were honed.

THE POWER OF MOAB

Moab… a massive and magical place, exploding with staggering beauty right out of the heart of the United States. It is one of the most wildly unique and visually stunning areas on Planet Earth. With its special sandstone terrain and red rock formations spread over tens of thousands of acres, Moab’s astounding red glow calls to inspire and reinspire nature lovers and photographers of all levels.

The area where an entire ocean evaporated 300 million years ago, today Moab is the most condensed area of natural sandstone arches in the world (over 2,000, to be exact!).
