“Gemini” by Hazel Griffiths

 

 

Hazel is a professional artist specializing in a unique mixed media style using encaustic wax, oil, acrylic and metal leaf, the reflected light of which adds a mystical element to the surface of her paintings. She often uses natural fiber with wax to create interesting textures and surfaces.  “I love to use texture in my work as to me it lends gravity, anchoring into a dimension that is real, placing it in this world while simultaneously being in the realm of fantasy, which is my own form of magical realism. Also the textures I use, mirror the structures I see in nature, which have always been the source of inspiration at the core of my creativity”.
“Do not feel lonely, the entire universe is inside you” – Rumi.

WASNicoleGalluccioInternal_Grey_Reboot

“Grey Reboot” by Nicole Gallucio

 

“Inspiration for my mixed media floral pieces is predominantly from an impetus to utilize color theory as an emotional catalyst; to calm, to evoke joy, to be a visual antidepressant. Imagery inspired from nature as well as from vintage fabrics, 60’s mod fashion and style, comic and street art spun into heavily exaggerated boldly colorful illustrative works”.

 

 

“Early on in my quest to determine my path in the art world, I needed to find better ways to hone my personal style and create depth and contrast to my more flat illustrative works. During my art education experience, I dabbled in using different media including paper and adding texture to my work this way. As time went on, I wanted to utilize the definitive contrast of a black and white background against the vibrant colors used in my paintings. I have always been fascinated with the outrageous headlines in tabloid magazines and felt what better use of the exploitation of celebrity, Americas obsession with it, and contrast it against something beautiful in nature vs. something garish and absurd yet commonplace in our culture; Something beautiful, vibrant and inviting vs. something somewhat dark and absurd at times, which we are drawn to as a culture. Along the way, I started including headlines and wording that struck me in positive ways or exemplified the experience and my emotions as related to that experience. This continues to change and reflect the times of my life and influences upon me within different series”.

 

“I continue to experiment with the black and white paper collage against the bright colored paintings within my work as a means to convey the emotion. I feel I have solidified this technique, and in the manner used, as signature to my work and recognizable as mine. How I incorporate this may change in the future as I gravitate toward new series with different life experiences. I am expanding my use of imagery from other sources, including old children books, wallpapers, vintage Life Magazines, and anything that intrigues me as I will always find a way to incorporate it within a piece befitting”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Michael Kupillas
mikerqp2011@gmail.com

 

 

 

 

“My artwork is about feelings and emotions. Although I paint and draw many subjects: people, landscapes, architecture, still life, and abstract – I try to evoke a feeling or a memory of an emotion through color and form. A painting becomes a journey of perspective and tension as you travel down the visual pathways I create. Details emerge, and forms and shadows coalesce into the place where imagination lives. That’s what I try to make. I am a resident artist @ Boynton Beach Art District, and former Owner of Village Studio Gallery of Delray Beach. Available for showings and studio tours by appointment”.

“Dilapidated” by Emmanuel Gonzales

 

Emmanuel Gonzales has had a strong presence in the in the south Florida art scene since his graduation from Palm Beach Atlantic College in 2001. He has a bold and edgy style fusing together collage, pencil, pastel and oils to create strong imagery that consistently makes a statement. His work has been seen in various juried shows and galleries in Palm Beach County and Orlando. Most recently he has displayed at the Voight Gallery on Palm Beach Island, OSGS Gallery in Northwood, and currently has opened his own working studio gallery in West Palm Beach appropriately called “Above Ground.”

 
The pop-up show “Continuum” in downtown West Palm Beach displayed a variety of his paintings during Art Palm Beach in 2014. Most notably, his “Keys to the Cities” piano project entitled “Waiting in Vain” graced passersby with impromptu concerts in downtown Lake Worth. Emmanuel Also participated in Orlando’s “Rock the Box” where he was selected to paint a newspaper box for the Orlando weekly. “Art Synergy” a subdivision of Art Synergy selected one of Emmanuel’s works to be displayed during the prestigious art exhibit. Most recently, Emmanuel was honored by being commissioned to paint Florida State Senator Marco Rubio’s portrait to grace his Washington office.

“Tree Of knowledge Seduces Peacock” by Luis Vale

 

 

“My work reflects my obsession and influence with the ancient past, spirituality, the super-natural and the divine. I am a local artist originally from Managua, Nicaragua. Being displaced from my homeland at a young age has caused me to reflect on my native cultures’ heritage and history. Some influences come from the actual region while others have been absorbed by other indigenous cultures and world traditions. Borrowing elements from surrealism, aboriginal, pre-Colombian and shamanistic indigenous societies I paint images conveying the world as moving fluid energy. My work is a contemporary approach of creating images to touch the soul. I am a strong believer that spirituality has been lost in the mix of commercialism, trends and fashion in art”.

 

 

“My goal is to make art that not only looks good to the eye and fits your home but also touches a part of you where words just can’t describe. I work in various mediums from canvases, largescale murals, the female body and video. Through the various mediums the act of creation is a process where I attempt to transmit my images through divine inspiration. Angelic spirit guides, power animals, nature and the subconscious mind are all aspects that can be found in my work. Recently my focus has been painting large-scale murals where the community and passerby’s can appreciate what I do. I have found that creating art in the streets gives me a certain satisfaction that the galleries and institutions can’t provide. The effect that my work has on others is greatly magnified when it is put out in the open for the world to see”.

Julie Sylvester walks the hot sands of the beach to find unique one of a kind seashells that she turns into sculptures of ships and large vessels, mermaids, lighthouses and coral encrusted beach scenes. Her selection of seashells on beautiful silk twine will adorn your body and make you feel beautiful with a natural sense of wearable art. She turns vintage wooden boxes into works of art for jewelry or purses with ocean-themed images of applied seashells, driftwood, seagrass, and coral. She also creates with the encaustic art technique using applied hot wax or engraving with her wood burning skills to engrave and trim.

Basketry/Ceramic Vessel by Bonnie Bruner

 

 

Bonnie Brunner uses her talents to make unique basketry.  She patiently hand weaves naturally dyed colorful strands of sea grape vines, twigs, and twine which are sometimes combined with hand-built ceramic bases.  Each vessel has a personalized look, as her artistry resembles the waves of the mighty white-tipped ocean crashing against the hot sandy beach. They will make quite a statement sitting in your cottage by the sea.

Fused Glass Fish by Betty Wilson

 

Ocean creatures and the hues of neon colored tropical fish come to life within the alluring fused glass created by artist Betty Wilson. The rays of natural light reflect and bounce off the different species of fish she creates with glass.

 

 

Ebba Tinwin wraps beautiful sea glass with wire to create gorgeous jewelry for that special someone (and yourself). She selects the shards of sea glass that have been tossed to the shores of the ocean through the rough waves. She selects her palette of colors and choice of blues, greens, whites, golds, and turquoise and then polishes each one before wrapped in wires of silver and gold.

 

 

 

 

Dr. Herbert Brosky hand carves tropical birds out of found pieces of wood. His amazing talents of come to life in his realistic carvings. A retired dentist, he uses his intricate dental tools to hand carve the details of his artistic birds. He then delicately paints each one to make them come to life. His flamingo wears a beautiful coat of pink and stands perched on stilt legs, while the sea gull’s underbelly shows as if you are standing on the ocean pier watching them fly away. The sand piper sits on a rock of driftwood aged from the salt of the ocean.

About Jose Delbo (from JoseDelbo.com) :

“Remember the 60’s when the Beatles saved Pepperland from the Blue Meanies in the Yellow Submarine? Well, I was the cartoonist responsible for illustrating the Fab Four with Gold Key Comics does. I am an Argentinian born artist who published my first work at the age of only 16. I was inspired by the American cowboy westerns, moved to the States and began work on classics like Billy the Kid, Judge Colt and the Lone Ranger. Then in the 70’s, I brought a host of television shows to comic book form with titles such as the The Twilight Zone, The Brady Bunch, Hogan’s Heroes, Buck Rogers, The Monkees and the Mod Squad”.

“Back in the 80’s, long before the modern superhero dominated the big screen, I worked for the likes of DC and Marvel Comics who penciled the published adventures of Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Green Arrow, The Transformers and The Thundercats. Then in the 90’s, when the focus fell on the environment, I helped the country go green when I drew the first issues of Captain Planet and the Planeteers and Brute Force. I continued to be the go-to-guy for cartoon classics like Disney’s 101 Dalmatians, Little Mermaid and the Mighty Ducks. When the NFL needed a superhero, I drew the NFL Superior who ran around with Spiderman fighting crime in the big city”.

Exhibit Runs July 5 – August 9, 2016

 

Caren tells The Rickie Report, “I love my work as a graphic designer and fine artist. I am always happy to be in the studio. However, very few of my projects have filled me with as much drive and energy as the “Yoga Series” and “Yoga Icons.” There are so many reasons why this series of work is deeply meaningful to me”. 

 

 

APBCCarenHackmanStill Lifel 2016 Card WEB

 

 

• ONE: Yoga saved my life. After an injury in 2008 and unsuccessful back surgery, I was in pain and side-lined for two years. Thanks to the great training I received from my first yoga instructor, Anna Lee Sanders, and all the wonderful teachers since, I live a full, active life. This series of paintings shows my gratitude, love, and respect for the practice. I hope that viewers can feel that love, and connect with the spiritual and physical aspects of yoga.

• TWO: I can feel the body positions while I am painting. The breath work, distribution of weight, and muscle exertion are with me as I create the art.

 

 

HACKMAN-shelby-child-pose-TRR

• THREE: Anytime that I have the opportunity to combine media or skills in graphic design and fine art, I am happily energized. Working the images back and forth between the digital world and the paintbrush on canvas world makes for greater artistic expression.

 

HACKMAN-Karen-in-blue-TRR

“Karen in Blue” by Caren Hackman

 

“The yoga artwork takes two forms. One group of pieces on which I am working are acrylic paintings on canvas. The painterly realism of the brushstrokes and lighting show the energy and spirit of the asanas or poses. To further the feeling of freedom, I’ve elected not to “constrain” the pieces in a classic frame. The pieces hang, scroll-style, from a support at the top of each painting”.

 

HACKMAN-shanti-scroll-TRR

“Shanti Scroll” by Caren Hackman

 

“The other suite of artwork combines digital painting and archival printing on canvas with hand embellished accents. I have coined this suite of paintings “Yoga Icons” as homage to Andy Warhol, who had a knack for depicting well-known personalities as “pop icons”. Warhol’s line work and use of bright, flat colors in his silk screened portraits, made an impression on me when I visited an exhibition of his work at the Boca Museum of Art. I created my own stylized color and line work in this yoga series”.

“Many thanks to my first models, Karen Burnett and Shelby Grant of Yoga Palm Beach who are my first yoga pop icons!  I am so happy to have been invited to judge the Artists of Beach County “Still Life” show and to be offered a Solo Exhibition area for my latest figurative and spiritual yoga pieces”.
