Art Installation by Aurora Molina

 

 

Aurora Molina is a figurative fiber sculpture artist, using embroidery as a drawing instrument, and fabric as a material for building large sculptural installations, tapestries, marionettes, and small wall drawings that capture people of all ages and backgrounds, and the environments in which they live. Each has its own spirit; some playful, some grotesque, others belligerent and some with a more serious side. Some contain satirical, even subversive political commentaries. Each one tells a story that appeals to our social consciousness and narrates stories, whether about childhood or aging, family, climate change or anthropoid-like creatures with animal instincts, immigration or life in one of the many cultures in which she has lived and worked. She says “The use of fabric and the obsessiveness of embroidery defines my work and honors that centuries-old legacy of women weavers and artisans.”

 

 

 

 

 

Art Installation At FAT Village by Aurora Molina

 

 

 

Photography, video, robotics and more have been utilized in the telling of her many stories. “Whereas society has slowly created “fictions” and “virtual realities” to replace the real, I instead direct the spectator’s attention to the everyday real happenings of ordinary lives.” Some works use stockings to make her creatures appear crude, more visceral, “as if the skin had been removed to reveal what’s beneath, to expose the rawness of tissue and blood”. She says “it is the grotesque nature of these pieces that is meant to invite deeper explorations into the true nature of the character, in order to seduce the spectator to reexamine his or her own psychological vulnerabilities”.

 

 

Figurative Art by Aurora Molina

 

 

 


Aurora Molina was born in La Havana, Cuba, in 1984, and emigrated to the United States at the age of sixteen. She received her BA in Fine Arts from Florida International University, specializing in Mixed Media, and her MFA in Contemporary Art at the Universidad Europea de Madrid, completed in 2009. She currently lives in Miami, where she is a resident artist at the Bakehouse Art Complex, and is represented by Bernice Steinbaum Gallery. She also works as an art educator, teaching art to kids who are often from disadvantaged backgrounds or with developmental disabilities, in Miami, Oaxaca, Mexico, Yogjakarta, Indonesia, and Kota, India, often related to the aesthetics of their own cultural traditions.

About Art Salons:

South Florida has become a vibrant center for art and artists, and ART SALONS at the ARMORY ART CENTER in West Palm Beach are a gathering place for artists from throughout in the region. Each month from October to May, Art Salons offer presentations by influential professional artists whose artwork is being shown in museums and galleries in South Florida. Presenters show their work, talk about their influences, and explore the work of artists showing in museums and galleries, followed by stimulating discussions between all who attend. Our discussions cover the gamut of contemporary art themes, including conceptual, cultural, socio/political, environmental, race and gender focused and aesthetic practices, the materials and techniques used to convey these ideas, and where we fit into the world of contemporary conceptual art. Art Salons also offer the opportunity to explore the practical side of being an artist, enhance professional development, share useful resources, and network with other artists.

Elle Schorr, a well-known artist / photographer who spends much of her time at museums and art exhibits locally and internationally, has been facilitating the salons, hosted by the Armory Art Center, since 2012.

“Adventures in Interior Design” by Phillip Estlund

 

 

Phillip Estlund makes sculptures and assemblages using detritus from his immediate surroundings. These works are reflective of the present day, tenuous natural environmental and financial climate. Estlund’s work is made from ordinary materials collected from demolition sites – all in advanced stages of decrepitude, further hastened by the volatile South Florida climate. Ever yielding to the inevitability and finality of decay, through these sculptures the artist embraces attrition and the resulting degeneration as a force of both inevitable annihilation and potential growth. He has also created heavily tactile landscape paintings, as well as transforming mid century pieces of furniture through addition of botanical and field guide images, and real but inverted cypress knees. Inspired by the sequential devastating hurricanes that preceded the housing crash nearly a decade ago, and through the use of a menagerie of man-made, natural, and synthetic-chemical materials, Estlund is addressing the visual/physical stew that is our contemporary landscape and examining the complexities of living in such a place.

 

 

“Home Invasion” by Phillip Estlund

 

 

Phillip Estlund was born in Athens, Greece and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. He received his BFA from the Maryland Institute, College of Art and studied in the Netherlands at the Academie voor Beeldende Vorming, Tilburg. He received a South Florida Cultural Consortium Grant in 2011, and has been included in exhibitions at Cheim and Reid, Gagosian, Eleven Rivington, Work/Space at ACME, Los Angeles, MOCA North Miami, Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, Schmitt Gallery at FAU, The Norton Museum (The Triumph of Love / The Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection), and the Bunker Artspace Inaugural Exhibition of the Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection, (where he is also a co-curator). Estlund is represented by Gavlak Gallery in Palm Beach, and will have work in “Sea and Sky” there this fall. One of his installations can currently be seen at the Culture Lab (formerly Macy’s) in West Palm Beach.

“Medusa” by Mark Walnock

 

 

Connections are also relevant between these two disciplines as both are three-dimensional. Although the technical approach to developing work in Ceramics and Jewelry/Metalsmithing is different, they connect with the same design language, tackle similar concepts, and share concerns regarding surface, scale, and functionality.

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.

 

Artwork by Isabel Gouveia

 

 

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.

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”.

“Dream” by Vicki Siegel

 

VICKI SIEGEL:

Vicki Siegel’s work combines painting and photography together. She creates images that unite her fascination with the world around her with the physicality of paint. Blending the two art forms is a process that results in images that are both real and imaginary. The photographers gaze allows her to observe and archive reality, while the paint flows from her subconscious to my brush in marks that are uniquely her own.

Siegel says, “In my work I ask the viewer to engage by comparing what is photographic and what is paint, but also what is personal and what is universal”. It is her hope that the viewer sees her vision of how strange and wonderful life is, and how beautiful nature is and the necessity of preserving it.

“A Poem For The Sharpevilles One Year” by Anja Marais

 

 

Anja Marais is a South African sculptor and multi-disciplinary artist. She has completed residencies in Japan, Korea, Russia and Florida and completed solo and group shows in Asia, Europe and the US.  Anja’s website shares the following: “Hi. I’m Anja, a multi-disciplinary visual artist. My art is being exhibited in the national and international arena and collected by private entities and museums. In my art practice, I use history as a leitmotiv – mostly the lineage of the ancestral and the ecological – to create milieus where the fragile and weary voyager can be hallowed”.
