“From OP to POP”

Light hors d’oeuvres & wine bar
Exhibition runs through May 20, 2017
After 30 years focusing on and perfecting his Op Art, short for optical illusion art and geometric art techniques, Stanford Slutsky moved into this new territory of Pop Art as he recalled driving a Good Humor Ice cream Truck in the summer of 1957. Combining the depth of his artistic knowledge with his life long journey with food and eating food, he creates giant size realistic sculptures that are one- of- a- kind larger than life food items with the emphasis on sweet things.
Bigger than life-size food sculptures by Stanford Slutsky
The American Artist and Sculptor was born in 1941 in Pittsburgh, PA. Now residing in Boynton beach, FL, he tells The Rickie Report, “When I was a child, there was something about the illusions magicians created that captured my imagination. I want that same vivid sense of illusions to be central in all of my artwork. Today, all of my new works of food are creations of colorful, playful and appetizing-yet calorie free”.
“Four Spheres” by Stanford Slutsky
At a young age, Slutsky unearthed clay to made sculptures. In High school he won many awards in jewelry design and creation. He moved to Florida 34 years ago where he became a full time working and professional artist. These past years he has had numerous SOLO exhibits including the Young at Art Museum in Davie, Fl, Coral Springs Museum of Art, The Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art, The Fort Lauderdale Art Institute, and Nathan D. Rosen Museum.
“Radiance” by Stanford Slutsky
“Math, admits Slutsky, wasn’t exactly my best subject in high school”. But since embracing his fascination, a wide variety of geometric-inspired artwork appears to pop off the canvas. “I am a geometric abstract, optical illusion artist,” he explains. “My work creates the illusion of movement and three-dimensionality. Some shapes of color may seem to advance and then recede and others appear to pulsate in waves.”
“Round Candy Box” by Stanford Slutsky
When you bring the art work of Stanford Slutsky to your home or office, you automatically invite joy and whimsy to your walls and space! His artwork is precise yet spontaneous. His perceptions of the world will bring a smile to your heart and engage all of your visitors. Mr. Slutsky’s pieces are original one of a kind optical illusion acrylic on canvas and his food sculptures are larger than life with the emphasis on sweet things. Slutsky says, ” I am chasing the sweet things in life.”
