 New Fall Show!

 

 

November 3 & 4, 2018 

 

10 am – 5 pm Each day

 

 

 

Outdoors at Mizner Park Amphitheater

590 Plaza Real         Boca Raton, FL 33432 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For more than three decades, Murphy has been employing a keen sense of color and unique feel for design and form to create dynamic, multi-dimensional geometric abstract paintings that have earned him recognition on an international scale. Murf equates his compositions with cartography. But he’s not interested in mapping out shorelines, islands, continents or seas. He is busy charting the universe and the unifying threads that run through all of nature.

 

Award of Excellence Goes to Murf Murphy

 

Toward that end, he has developed a language of colors, lines and geometric forms. But there’s an architectural quality to his abstract works. Some of that inheres in his use of thick layers and impasto applied with brushes, palette and even putty knives. But he confers three-dimensionality on many of his works by combining colored acrylic films with glass that he sets about half an inch from the painted surface of his underlying canvas.

 

 

 

 

 

When he was just starting out, Murf had a day job tinting car windows. He quickly discovered that he could piece together scenes on windows, sliding glass doors and storefronts from these colored films in much the same way that Henri Matisse used scissors and colored paper to fashion his renowned posters and other cutouts during the final chapter of his storied career.  “At some point, I began framing them and taking them to art shows and festivals,” Murf recounts. “The process evolved from there.”

 

“Fire and Ice” by Murf Murphy

 

 

Today, he affixes his colored film cutouts to the underside of a plate of clear glass in patterns that augment or contrast with the geometric patterns in the composition beneath the glass. As the beam of a gallery spotlight passes through the glass and film cutouts, it is focused, splintered and refracted to create mesmerizing highlights and shadows on the textured surface of the canvas. Natural, organic light will produce the same effect, although in a more diffuse, subtle manner.

 

 

 

 

 

The resulting three-dimensional, tactile quality is a new wrinkle in the 100-year history of the abstract art movement. But there’s more to Murphy’s abstractionism than texture and dimensionality. He also evokes a preoccupation with the building blocks of the natural world and cosmology: light, color and geometrical shapes, particularly rectangles and squares. “Silver Square”, “Yellow Light”, “Green Light”, “Across the Sky”, “New Horizons”, “Golden Moon”  and “Color Source” are the names of just a few of his contemporary constructs. These cues aside, Murf leaves it to his viewers to intuit whether the interplay of light, color, shape and shadow reflect cosmic truths or some cogent commentary on the human condition in modern society denoted, as it is, by the repudiation of fact and science, environmental damage, and impending climatological cataclysm.

 

“Color Dance” by Murf Murphy

 

 

 

 

Over the years, Murf has converted some of his more popular compositions into lithographs. Several have been popularized as art show posters and album and magazine covers – including Hot Works award-winning 16th Orchard Lake Fine Art Show held in West Bloomfield, Michigan this past July. A number can be found in the collections of famous jazz musicians and other public figures, including Dave Sanborn, Richard Elliot, Kenny Rankin, Dave Koz and President Bill Clinton.

 

 

 

He has also shared the limelight at environmental, educational and social events with the likes of Pamela Anderson, Bob Barker, Ivana Trump, and former Vice President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore.  In 2010, Murf presented his “Earth Island” lithograph to the newly installed Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-Moon. That work was also featured on the PBS “Jim Brickman Beautiful World” special.

While the fall show is new this season, the winter Boca Raton Fine Art Show has been voted among the top 100 art shows in America three years running. Institute for Arts & Education is the associated 501( c)(3) non-profit organization that is dedicated to fostering art education among youth, cultural diversity, visual arts and community enrichment.

One of the many strengths of this show is its intimate, boutique nature which allows art lovers and collectors to engage the artists about their inspiration, process and what makes them unique within the highly-competitive realm of fine arts and fine crafts. But Executive Director Patty Narozny employs a number of other time-honored techniques to make Hot Works’ shows a positive experience both for participating artists and patrons. She enlists a team of art professionals to judge the work of the hundreds of applicants who wish to participate in Hot Works’ shows. Narozny is choosey, and her interest goes well beyond digital images and paper applications. She visits many of her artists in their homes and studios to make sure that their work makes a contribution to the quality of her shows and a statement in the collections of the people who patronize them.

 

 

Wearable Art by Artist, Perry

 

 

 

Narozny also understands that most of the folks who come to her shows are far from experienced collectors. In fact, many are newbies – or have yet to take the plunge and buy their first artwork. They are still in the process of defining their tastes and have yet to figure out what they like and why it speaks to them. This explains why she builds variety into every Hot Works show. She and her team strive to ensure that the work presented covers a wide range of price points. There is art for every budget – and something for everyone.  Purchasers can buy with confidence. Because Narozny does her homework so meticulously, they know they are not only getting an original work of art from a credentialed artist, they are getting value as well.

While the business side of the equation is serious work, attending a Hot Works show is a relaxing, casual experience. It’s like taking a leisurely stroll through a park filled with artwork. There’s no pressure to do anything more than look and envision what that great painting, photograph or sculpture might look like in your home or office. And if you need a little help in the latter category, all of the exhibiting artists are only too happy to bring one or more artworks to your house after hours so that you can see exactly what it looks like on your bookcase, floor or wall.

For the Youth Artists who do not win, keep creating the art that you love, please do not give up. Please congratulate those who do win’.”  To date, more than 1,325 students have participated in this program.

November 3 & 4, 2018 – New Fall Show!

Outdoors at Mizner Park Amphitheater

MEET  FEATURED  ARTIST  EDWARD  LOEDDING:

“Ceremony” by Edward Loedding. Original pigment print on canvas.
Edward Loedding tells The Rickie Report, “I call my technique Visual Choreography because it brings many elements together to create a dance for your eyes. The process blends photo montage, digital painting, and a unique printing process that utilizes 12 colors of 100% pigment ink. I have been creating art this way for approximately 15 years, after more than 20 years as an oil painter”.
“Courante” by Edward Loedding. Original pigment print on canvas.
He says, “My transition from painting in oils to painting digitally was a search for a more fluid way to create artwork: a way to change lines and shapes and colors throughout the process as the piece evolved. Along the way, I discovered that this medium offered so much more. It was a way to execute my vision in real time as it unfolded; it was creating at the speed of thought”.

Edward and Dorothy Loedding with Patty Narozny

 Edward tells us,”My primary residence is in Brandon, Vermont where I reside with my wife of 21 years, Dorothy. My studio is every artist’s dream: a 150 year old two story post and beam barn that sits 40 feet behind our renovated victorian home in the heart of a quintisentally quaint village. Brandon is also home to our new gallery – still under construction – that will showcase all of my most recent work. We also have a home on the gulf coast of Florida, where we spend our winters.  I am proud to belong to art collections all over the world, and Hotwork’s first-class events help me to reach that audience”.  For more information:  http://www.edwardloedding.com

Special recognition was given to local art teachers including Hope Campbell and Shelley Weiss of North Broward Preparatory School, Jennifer Schultz of Grandview Preparatory School, and Heather Schumulian of Hebrew Academy School in Margate who entered their students into this art-education program.

Participating artist in the show, Mixed Media Artist Zaki of Antwerp, Belgium was the Budding Artist Judge. Similar to the judging of the professional artist awards, the budding artists were judged based on originality, technique, and execution. Zaki provided an explanation as to why each student won his/her prize which provided an educational learning experience about art.

9th ANNUAL HOTWORKS.ORG

BOCA RATON FINE ART SHOW ™

Saturday, January 27, 2018

&

Sunday, January 28, 2018

 10 am – 5 pm Both Days

 

 

Sanborn Square Park on East Boca Raton Road and NE 1st Avenue

 

Roads close at 3pm Friday, January 26 until 10pm, Sunday, January 28

 

 

 

 

 

One of the many strengths of this show is its intimate, boutique nature which allows art lovers and collectors to engage the artists about their inspiration, process and what makes them unique within the highly-competitive realm of fine arts and fine crafts. But Executive Director Patty Narozny employs a number of other time-honored techniques to make Hot Works’ shows a positive experience both for participating artists and patrons.

 

 

First and foremost, she enlists a team of art professionals with more than 120 years of combined experience to judge the work of the hundreds of applicants who wish to participate in Hot Works’ shows. Narozny is choosey, and her interest goes well beyond digital images and paper applications. She visits many of her artists in their homes and studios to make sure that their work makes a contribution to the quality of her shows and a statement in the collections of the people who patronize them.

But Narozny also understands that most of the folks who come to her shows are far from experienced collectors. In fact, many are newbies – or have yet to take the plunge and buy their first artwork. They are still in the process of defining their tastes and have yet to figure out what they like and why is speaks to them. Which is why she builds variety into every Hot Works show. Further, she and her team strive to ensure that the work presented covers a wide range of price points. There is art for every budget. Last but not least, purchasers can buy with confidence. Because Narozny does her homework so meticulously, they know they’re not only getting an original work of art from a credentialed artist, they are getting value as well.

While the business side of the equation is serious work, attending a Hot Works show is a relaxing, casual experience. It’s like taking a leisurely stroll through a park filled with artwork. There’s no pressure to do anything more than look and envision what that great painting, photograph or sculpture might look like in your home or office. And if you need a little help in the latter category, all of the exhibiting artists are only too happy to bring one or more artworks to your house after hours so that you can see exactly what it looks like on your bookcase, floor or wall.
