Sanford Slutsky with 3D Mixed Media

 

 

 

Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Stanford Slutsky is a nationally and internationally known American painter and sculptor who has exhibited extensively in south Florida including in the Coral Springs Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Lauderdale Museum of Art and many more museums. His evolution as an artist has led him to create larger-than-life explorations of food. But not just any food has captured his fancy… Slutsky harnesses the innocence of youth with sculptures of large donuts covered with colorful sprinkles, popsicles, strawberry shortcakes, ice cream on sticks, cakes, candy and even fruit, cheeseburgers and hot dogs.

 

 

StanfordSlutzky#486 Assorted Candy 14 x 20 x3

Stanford Slutsky’s “Assorted Candy”

 

By exaggerating the size of these snacks and desserts, the artist similarly enhances the viewer’s craving. Slutsky states, “After walking through the market, I see something sweet to create and proceed to recreate in my studio by eating, studying, feeling and smelling my new subject matter.” Slutsky then starts by taking photos, measuring, sculpting, sanding, and mixing paint colors for the mixed media construction of his artwork.

 

StanfordSlutskyOrangePushUp

Stanford Slutsky’s “Orange Push Up”

 

 

 

 

After 30 years focusing on and perfecting his optical illusion Art and geometric techniques, Slutsky has now moved into his new territory. His memory of the summer of 1957 when he drove a Good Humor ice cream truck and was called “Stan the Good Humor Man” drives his intention to stimulate and provoke a positive emotional response to our love of food.

 

 

 

StanfordSlutskyimage003

Stanford Slutsky’s “Big Boy”

 

 

 

Combining all his techniques with his love of art and his other passion…food. which he creates giant size realistic sculptures.  “When I was a child,” says Slutsky of Boynton Beach, FL, “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 my artwork. Today, all of my new works of food are creations of colorful, playful and appetizing – yet calorie free”.

Stanford Slutsky’s “Half Dozen”

 

 

 

Slutsky has exhibited in numerous venues and participated in many national and international competitions including Boca Raton Museum of Art 54th Annual All Florida Juried Competition and Exhibition, (out of more than 1100 submissions by nearly 400 artists, he was one of less than 100 artists chosen to represent the Best in Florida), 2016 His “Assorted Candy” won award at The Armory Art Center ( West Palm Beach), Art in Public Places at the Palm Beach international Airport, Rosen Museum Gallery (Boca Raton), and Hortt 45 The Best Of South Florida, among others.

Tracy Rosof-Petersen of EarthArtists Clay Studio is proud to create functional and decorative clay wares for everyday uses. CREATING hand-made Clay Art is ecologically friendly and leaves a low carbon footprint. USING small studio clayware reduces our negative human impact on Earth, supports ethical consumerism and promotes sustainability. Green purchases you can feel great about!

She is known locally for her public art sculpted mural installations around Palm Beach County and for her meticulous ceramic repair techniques.

 

ArtisansMaryCatelloEvening Mary Catello and Teri Solomoni

 

EarthArt by Mary and Teri is a mother-daughter team that look to the local palm trees to create both functional and artistic vessels. The material used, palm inflorescence and palm boots are personally gathered and prepared for use. Most of the material is gathered prior to hurricane season in an effort to reduce damage while replenishing their supply.
