The community can also help with fundraising and support.  Initially there will be 4-5 murals painted on buildings located on Northwood Road, Spruce Avenue and 25th Street. The goal is to beautify and bring more vitality to the neighborhood. Each mural will be painted by a different artist.  Artist List:  Craig McInnis @ 2417 Spruce Ave  Eduardo Mendieta @ 441 25th Street   Amanda Valdes

Mark Lesser’s “Reclaimed Abstractions” Can Be Seen at Hangar Gallery

Mark Lesser’s paintings have been exhibited around the United States and can be seen now at the Hangar Gallery in Miami. If you missed the opening during Art Basel, you still have time to see his new and courageous exhibit, “Reclaimed Abstractions”.  Mark has become relentless, by slicing up previous works in oil to deliver an unorthodox experience. This fresh work is an integration of memories, experiences, and tones, color, plus movement.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.  Don’t miss this exhibit, which continues through the end of December!

In his most recent work, titled, “Reclaimed Abstractions” Mark became relentless and sliced up previous works in oil to deliver a fresh experience. This unorthodox work is an integration of memories, experiences, and tones, color, and movement. Mark says, ” it was risky and challenging to cut up work that I once labored over”. In Reclaimed Abstraction #1, Mark created an Oceanside feeling of tranquility, calm and soft tones. This piece captures Mark’s recent move to Ocean Ridge beach. Pieces of this painting once represented a Tennessee sunset, as Mark drove over a bridge shooting the sky through his sunroof. Another painting, Reclaimed Abstraction #2, one gets the feeling of taking route 66 from “Chicago to LA”, as Mark has done many times. A review of the painting reminds one of the American countryside, beautiful skies, old leather, wood, and layers of paint on a weathered sign.

“Reclaimed Abstractions6″ by Mark Lesser

 

 

Growing up in Chicago, Lesser acknowledged the artistic gift his grandfather passed along to him. His grandfather, a Russian immigrant, was a tailor, poet and artist who painted beautiful ornate images using everyday stencils, such as those found on tomato cartons. Inspired by his grandfather’s work at an early age, Mark focused on challenging his images through the tensions of abstract color fields and spontaneous expression seeking to maintain a connection with realistic references infused with an emotional process.

“Reclaimed Abstractions1″ by Mark Lesser

 

 

Mark’s journey began in the late eighties, when he ventured to New York City working the night shift on the set of ABC’s “Good Morning America” and exploring art galleries by day. New York City, a jumping off point for Mark, was where he discovered himself an artist and began painting for what would be his first solo art show years later.

“Reclaimed Abstractions2″ by Mark Lesser

 

 

Later, Mark relocated to LA where he raised his daughter, Taylor.  His travels were the focal points for his first collection, which appeared at the Warehouse Gallery and Santa Monica Fine Arts Studio in southern California. Then in a 2001 exhibit at the newly opened Fiorucci store in New York, Mark showed paintings which inspired a line of women’s scarves from his images.

 

 

"Reflections" by Mark Lesser

“Reclaimed Abstractions3″ by Mark Lesser

 

 

Upon moving from Los Angeles to Dallas in 2006, Lesser found inspiration for his new paintings from a very fast paced experience of driving by his new surroundings in Dallas. He used his cell phone camera to capture images– not stopping but speeding by the terrain. The experiences are brief and intense capturing the motion of “going fast.” Using these images, Lesser combined them with his spontaneity of color and composition, allowing the motion to exist in still yet another dimension of “being still,” in a meditative manner.

 

 

MarklesserRA_005

“Reclaimed Abstractions4″ by Mark Lesser

From these works, the Haley Henman Gallery opened their doors with Lesser’s first solo show, “Going Fast Being Still” in 2007.  Lesser then continued to travel, slowing down slightly, as he’s collected photos of landscapes and oceanscapes of all types. These snapshot-like images have appeared in smaller works which appeared in the Haley Henman Gallery until 2012, when he moved to Florida.

 

MarklesserRA_005

“Reclaimed Abstractions 5″ by Mark Lesser

In 2013, his paintings built upon a body of work that sought to infuse an emotional process of luminous fields of color. He built the fields with thin, transparent floods of color over color following the school of color field abstractionists, especially inspired by Helen Frankenthaler, and Mark Rothko.

Jonathan Kis-Lev was born in 1985 to Russian Jewish immigrant parents and spent his childhood years in a small village on the outskirts of Jerusalem. At the age of sixteen, Kis-Lev was granted a full scholarship to Pearson College of the Pacific in British Columbia, Canada where he studied painting, sculpture, etching and print making.

 

 

 

Eve Menes was born in Antwerp, Belgium, and at an early age, after the outbreak of World War II, moved with her family to Brazil and later to the United States. She grew up in New York. Eve received her B.A. in Art and Education at a time of great ferment in the New York art scene: The New York School of Abstract Expressionism had already established itself and Pop Art and Neo-Realism were in their first stages of development.

 

Charles Cohen’s interest with photography began over twenty years ago, and he set up a dark room in his home and developed his own black and white photographs. He began taking classes at Old School Square in Delray Beach, Florida, and he is currently continuing his studies at the Boca Raton Museum of Art where he is a member. His favorite photography is black and white, however, he does have occasion to print in color.

 

Nahariya is the northernmost coastal city in Israel. It takes its name from a stream of the Ga’aton River (Nahar in Hebrew means River.) The water source has served as a draw for settlement over thousands of years as evidenced by the ruins of a Canaanite temple which were discovered near the present day municipal beach. This temple, archaeologists believe, was dedicated to Asherath (Astarte) the Canaanite goddess of the sea and dates to approximately 1500 BCE, roughly 200 years before the Exodus of Egypt and the Children of Israel’s entry into Canaan.

 

Historians know little about the inhabitants who lived in the region during this era. The city lies on the path of the ancient trade route, the Via Maris, that linked Syria, Egypt, Anatolia, and Mesopotamia. Its proximity to Acre, a major port City, would indicate the probability that the area was continuously inhabited. A Byzantine-era church was built in what is today the heart of Nahariya. A mosaic floor of the church can still be seen, depicting flora and fauna as well as scenes of work and hunting.

 

Modern day Nahariya was conceived as an utopian model by the agronomist Dr. Selig Eugen Soskin (1873-1959). Soskin was born in Russia and studied agronomy and philosophy in Germany. By 1903 he was already one of the best known leaders of the Zionist movement. He had a good command of Russian, Yiddish, German and English, but spoke hardly any Hebrew. On one of his many trips around the world, Dr. Soskin discovered a small colony in southern Spain called Monte Algaida. The colonists intensively cultivated seven dunams each of sand dunes, on which they grew potatoes, melons, cucumbers and other vegetables, using only sunlight, underground water, and natural fertilizers produced from their animals’ manure, and compost. Each house stood on its own lot, which was just large enough to provide for the family’s needs, and to market any surplus produce. All colonists were members of various cooperatives that provided the necessary infrastructure and community services, and took care of credit and marketing the colony’s products. Soskin searched all over the world, from Latin America to China, for a suitable model for colonizing Jewish Palestine. Soskin found it in the early 1920s at the western rim of the Mediterranean. Mid-thirties Nahariya was to be mirror image of Monte Algaida on the eastern rim of the Mediterranean.
The Negev, which extends over Israel’s southern region, accounts for over half of Israel’s land area. Due to its desert character, this region is sparsely populated. Even so, the Negev has seen its share of history. Abraham built his home in Be’er Sheva, the Nabateans passed through here on caravans of camels laden with precious trade goods. Various peoples have lived in the Negev since the dawn of history: Nomads Canaanites, Philistines, Edomites, Byzantines, Nabateans, Ottomans, and of course Israelis.

 

 

The modern Israeli settlement of the Negev began about 100 years ago when a few communities were built. There were joined by another 11 settlements whose founding members built the first home in a single night. After the establishment of Israel, the new country’s first Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion, promoted the settlement of the Negev. He later moved to Sde Boker.
Griffin Gallery specializes in museum quality Ancient Art. Our holdings include over five hundred authentic artifacts that reflect a spectrum of the cultures of Antiquity in addition to Contemporary Fine Works of Art. Among our treasures are pieces from Greece, Rome, Egypt, the Far East, the Near East, the Holy Land, Pre-Columbian cultures, and pre historic Native America.

Artwork Being Donated to Non-Profit Organizations By Denny Reed

Denny Reed is an artist who lives her creativity.  As she moves in a new direction of artistry, she has a studio filled with art pieces she is happy to donate to non-profit organizations.  Read this fascinating interview, as The Rickie Report explores the art world with Denny Reed.

 

 

 

 

DENNY REED

 

International Artist

"Heat" by Denny Reed

“Heat” by Denny Reed

TRR:  You’ve recently decided to donate a large body of your artwork. What has initiated this action?

DR:

“Since returning from painting in the mountains of South America this past October, it has become clear to me that it is time to release my art work from the last few years. When a new creative surge comes through me I have to make room for it energetically. This is the power of manifestation I learned years ago when I had an international business which taught self development and emotional intelligence seminars.
I have been involved with the internal and external explorations of self development all of my adult life instigated by unusual experiences I had as a child with mystics.  My art comes from the invisible depths of those experiences and I am continue to be greatly influenced by them. This year I am embarking on creating 3D mixed media installations for possible museum installations. I say possible because not all has been revealed to me yet so I cannot give a detail description of what I will be doing. I know I just need to make room for it to manifest.”

 

 

"Searching For Heaven" by Denny Reed

“Searching For Heaven” by Denny Reed

 

TRR:  Why donate, why not just sell your work?

DR:

“I feel complete with those pieces. I do not want to spend anymore time with them. I have sold all that I needed to of that series from that era of my life. My initial feeling was to just destroy what was left. I finally understood why many artists do destroy their work. They are done with that level of consciousness that was expressed through the creative spirit to them. They want to move on to the next level. Create a clean slate.

 

 
With deeper reflection I did not think it was ethical to destroy my work as too many people enjoy it so I decided to make sure people could still enjoy it. I picked non-profits to donate to because I have sat on non-profit boards almost all of my adult life and I know about fundraising challenges to help their incredible missions of service. Non profits have always inspired me because of their dedication to give selflessly.

 

 

 

"Heaven is in the Sky" by Denny Reed

“Heaven is in the Sky” by Denny Reed

 

TRR: So would you say your personal philosophy has driven you to these conclusions?

DR:

 

 

“On a personal note I do feel uncomfortable with the art business at large. Too many games and egos seem to interfere or take advantage of many artists. Money has really become a driving force in art and unfortunately the greed factor has pushed too many good artists to the side unrecognized because they do not play that game. I think the creative spirit is a pure energy that is in everyone. It is a connector for our human race as it is exciting to share with others and provide inspiration and dialogue. Of course an artist has to make money to live and to do so they have to step through a mine field of complexities and at the same time deal with their own personal ethics which all takes away time from creating art!”

 

 

"The Witness" by Denny Reed

“The Witness” by Denny Reed

 

TRR: How can a non profit proceed if they are interested in being part of your donation?

DR:

“Email me  info@dennyreed.com to start. If they are located in South Florida, I can meet them privately at my gallery.  If they are out of town I can share jpgs with them and arrange shipping.  All art donations are available between now and Dec 31st.”

 

 

"Celebrating the Light" by Denny Reed

“Celebrating the Light” by Denny Reed

 

TRR:  As of press time, where has your artwork been donated?

DR:

 

-Press Club of PA-endowment builders for Penn State, Delaware County Community College and Temple University
-Connecting Generations- Delaware’s resource for mentoring and other intergenerational programs
-Animal Rescue South Florida
-Greater Boynton Sister Cities

Keith Kanouse tells The Rickie Report, ” Though have no formal training in art and have never taken an art class, I have always loved art. One of my favorite courses in college was Art History. As one of the audience, my favorite period of art is French Impressionism. As an artist, my favorite paintings have the combination of geometry and various colors of the light prism giving a painting movement and 3 dimensionality.”

 

 

“My artistic journey began after graduating from the University of Notre Dame School of Law in 1974, when I moved to Buffalo, New York. While visiting the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and their modern art exhibits and was inspired. I went to an art store and bought a canvas and some acrylic paint and began. That artistic journey continues, after significant periods of inactivity, to this day with renewed intensity, confidence, and creativity.”

 

The Kollection

 Kollection by Keith

 

 

Keith’s paintings bring the viewer in, with his depth of colors and dimensionality of design.  Most often, his inspirations come from objects or events in every day life. A favorite silk tie or commemorating of our country’s Bi-Centennial in 1976.   At this point, Keith put his paint brushes down and focused on work and his family.

In 1988, a new home with barren walls beckoned.  A space over the fireplace turned to inspire another new painting for the dining room.  He shares, ” My inspiration was my wife’s, Susan’s limited edition Dior fine china called “Dior Rose” having a pattern of pinks and blues being the primary colors. Using these colors and others,  I used 14 equal squares at each side with the 14 squares becoming smaller and smaller until appearing to reach infinity in the center of the painting. “Whirlpool to Infinity” still hangs in our dining room and is my wife’s favorite. By starting your eye at the clue colors on the top of the painting and following the circular pattern round and round, you get the feeling of the whirlpool and falling into infinity.

When Keith’s daughter, Laura moved to Gainesville as a freshman at the University of Florida, she asked him to paint a painting for her dormitory room as a birthday present to her. “Her only instructions were to paint something in pink and orange.  That painting, “Laura’s 19th – Golden Sunset on Lake”  is shown above.  The photo does not do the painting justice as to the brilliancy of the colors, the setting sun and the waves below the golden shimmer, he explains.”

Keith relates, ” Now that I had more time as an “empty nester, my creative juices began running and I am creating a new painting on a regular basis. I like to get a feel of the place where the painting will hang to give me inspiration of its design and colors. There were 2 areas in our family room, left and right of the bay window, that could use paintings sized 24” x 48”. One of the areas was next to our large main stone wall in the family room that gave me inspiration for my painting “Stacked Stones.” I also back-lit it, giving a nice effect in the evening.”

 

 

 

 

Everyone knows that moving out of your “comfort zone” takes courage.  Keith has done just that, with a more impressionistic painting.  He says, ” I dreaded beginning to paint my next painting because it was, as you see, well outside of my comfort zone. My inspiration was a scene on Lake Oconee near Reynolds Plantation, Georgia at sunset. This was my first venture into post-impressionism painting.”

These artists represent divergent styles and media. Maxine Schreiber’s style is representational,  fundamentally landscape images.  Norman Berman’s watercolors and gouache are detailed abstractions and Debbie Mostel’s works are surrealistic assemblages. Each are strikingly different, yet there are consistencies among them they have in common.

Debbie’s education in art spans the globe. Her high-end sterling and glass fashion jewelry were sold in famous venues such as Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Nordstrom. They were also featured in publications such as the New York Times, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, and Harpers Bazaar.  Debbie currently incorporates castings of her jewelry elements into her paintings. Most of her work is half painted and half collaged with not just jewelry, but also many other found objects that contain special meaning to the artist.

After seeing Debbie’s work, well-known painter and gallery owner Jo Anne Berkow said “I immediately decided that I wanted to rep her in my gallery. To date her work has caused a lot of excitement. It is fresh, unique and makes a strong statement about the world we live in and the environment.”

In a recent interview Margie said ,  “My work comes from my heart. I have always loved creating whether it was painting,  jewelry design or ceramics.  When I paint I can freely express myself.  My canvas is like a two dimensional sculpture. I use color, texture and movement to sculpt emotions where everyone can feel free to touch and explore what has been created.”

"Untitled Seventeen"

“Untitled Seventeen”

Born a traveler, Mark Lesser has lived far and few between the east and west coasts spending time in NY, LA, and Dallas before recently settling in south Florida with his fiancé. Growing up in Chicago, Lesser acknowledged the artistic gift his grandfather passed along to him. His grandfather, a Russian immigrant, was a tailor, and artist who painted beautiful ornate images.
Mark Lesser

Mark Lesser

Inspired by this work, Mark focused on challenging his images through tension of abstract color fields and spontaneous expression seeking to maintain a connection with realistic references infused with an emotional process.
"Untitled One"

“Untitled One”

Mark’s art journey began in NYC, working the night shift on the set of ABC’s “Good Morning America”, and exploring art galleries by day. New York City, a jumping off point for Mark, was where he discovered himself an artist and began painting for what would be his first solo art show years later. Later, Mark relocated to LA where he raised his daughter, Taylor. His work appeared at the Warehouse Gallery and Santa Monica Fine Arts Studio. Then in a 2001 exhibit at the newly opened Fiorucci store in New York, Mark showed paintings which inspired a line of women’s scarves.
"Untitled Twenty Four"

“Untitled Twenty Four”

In 2007 The Haley Henman Gallery  (Dallas, TX) opened their doors with Lesser’s first solo show, “Going Fast, being still”. Lesser found inspiration from a very fast paced experience of driving by his new surroundings at about 60 mph. The experiences are brief and intense capturing the motion of “going fast.” Using these images, Lesser combined these images with his spontaneity of color and composition, allowing the motion to exist in still yet another dimension of “being still,” in a meditative manner. His most recent paintings builds upon a body of work that infuses an emotional process of luminous fields of color. He builds the fields with transparent floods of color over color following the school of color field abstractionists, especially inspired by Helen Frankenthaler, and Mark Rothko.

The Rickie Report staff first met Norman and and his late wife, Ethel, at a reception for the Artists of Palm Beach County.  We were fascinated by his artwork and had numerous questions about his technique, which he was happy to share.  Recently, we had the opportunity to interview Norman for this Feature Story.  What struck us was not only the depth of his knowledge but the humble manner in which he shared his life experiences.  We are honored to share his story with you and look forward to seeing you at the opening of his SOLO Exhibit at the Armory Art Center in November!

Local artist, Norm Berman presents a survey of recent works. Berman’s subject matter ranges from Judaic themes to abstract works.   

This exhibit is dedicated to the memory of Norman’ s late wife, Ethel Berman who passed away on July 28, 2013.   She was Norman’s strength, staunchest supporter and “instant critic.”

 

 

 

Norman Berman has been creating art work professionally for over 50 years.  He tells us, “For me, creating artwork is a challenge.  As I look at a work surface, I begin my conversation with it.  The surface says to me ,’Create something, I dare you!’  Therefore, my adventure begins!”  

 

As one  listens to Norman Berman share some of his life-stories, you must pay attention to details.  Looking at his artwork, that should be no surprise.  It is these tidbits that makes the whole.

 

"The Interdicted Land"

“The Interdicted Land”

 

TRR:  What were your early artistic influences?

NB:

 

I came from a minimally educated family.  My mother drew a great teacup and saucer, because she learned how to draw an oval and a round shape in school. The only artwork on our walls at home was my Bar Mitzvah picture.  My first introduction to art was at age four, when I accompanied my father, a shipping clerk in a mens’ wear company, to work.  The women in the office gave me a piece of paper, a red pencil, a black pencil and plopped me in a chair with the instructions to ‘draw something’.  I drew the American flag to keep myself occupied.  Over the years, I started to copy and draw comic book characters (Disney, Terry and the Pirates, Dick Tracy). My father would take these drawings and hang them in his workplace and change them around – it was my first public gallery!

 

 

As the United States entered WWII, I was fascinated by US military aircraft, so I wrote to all of the aircraft companies for pictures.  They would send me these gorgeous lithographic prints!  My favorite was the P38, a double fuselage  plane and very impressive to look at.  Around the same time, there was a kid in our neighborhood who was already in high school and must have been an art major. I would show him my airplane drawings and he showed me how to create perspective images: not linear perspective images going to a vanishing point, but looking down at buildings as if you were in an airplane.

 

 

When I was 10 years old, I broke my elbow.  It was probably the beginning of my escapades with brittle bone disease, but we didn’t know about that until much much later. While at Beth El Hospital ( now Maimonides), I used to draw the nurses in profile, with their little hats.  In elementary school, my art was always hanging in the halls.

 

"Brothers Three"

“Brothers Three”

 As a Junior High School student, one of my teachers recommended that I attend the High School of Music & Art. We happened to live close to the neighborhood high school, Abraham Lincoln High School.  To go to Music and Art, would mean a long commute via subway, which my parents weren’t happy about.  As a result, I ended up in a local high school that by chance, had  a fabulous art department! That’s where I got my real strength in training, in my approach to art.  In 10th grade, Herbert W. Yates taught me graphic design, different mediums as well as the importance of art history.

 

I started saving articles from “Life Magazine” that related to art and artists.  My father would pick up a copy at the newsstand every Saturday. I finally convinced him that it would be more convenient and less expensive to get a subscription!   After reading the entire magazine, I categorized the pictures into my own filing system in red envelopes.  My mother, who was also a voracious reader, would buy other magazines like ‘McCalls’ and ‘Ladies Home Journal’.  Those magazines happen to have some of the top-notched illustrators of our time.

 

 

"Chai Designs: Tallis 17, Heavenly Reverence"

“Chai Designs: Tallis 17, Heavenly Reverence”

TRR:  Norman shares his “beshert” (Yiddish for “meant to be”) moment.  He takes us back to 1950.  

 

Leon Friend was the Chairman of the Art Department and I was sitting in his Graphic Arts class – last row, second seat.  Leon says,’ DO YOU KNOW WHO SAT IN YOUR SEAT? ‘  I said, ‘No.’  Friend said, ‘Alex Steinweiss’.  This was like mentioning God!    Alex Steinweiss was in one of the early graduating classes at Lincoln.  After graduating from Parsons School of Design, he worked for Columbia Records. Steinweiss convinced his employers to change their marketing strategy to sell their long playing records.  Instead of wrapping the records in brown paper, they should create a book with the record inside.  Each book would have artwork on its cover.  Alex Steinweiss was responsible for the entire industry of record albums cover designs!

 

During my senior year, I prepared a portfolio and sent it out to various groups, including the School Art League.  It is now May, 1952.  Mr. Friend comes into class and asks who we think should be the happiest person in the room today.  And then he says, ‘Norman, it’s you!  You just won the scholarship to Parsons School of Design! ‘ I’m thinking that I’m following in the steps of Alex Steinweiss!

 

In those days, we didn’t have cell phones.  You couldn’t even go down to the office to call your mother!    When I finally got home and shared my good news, my mother thought it was very nice.  Then we waited until my father came home to tell him.  I had already been accepted to tuition-free Brooklyn College.    What to do…  My father, a practical man, didn’t want Norman to accept the scholarship.  (What if it wasn’t renewed after a year – they couldn’t afford tuition; what about the cost of supplies; they also wanted to send his brother to college in just more three years).

 

"Beyond Nightfall"

“Beyond Nightfall”

Norman had to go back to school and tell Mr. Friend the news. This dedicated teacher stayed until 7 pm the next evening to meet with Norman’s father in an attempt to convince him, even offering an extra $100. from the “Art Squad” to help defray costs. The answer was the same.  A product of the Depression, Norman’s father understood the need to be pragmatic. Norman would go to college, become a teacher and get a job.

 

That summer I didn’t have a job. I walked from Brighton Beach, where we lived and roamed the streets of Manhattan Beach.  It was an upper class community with street names in alphabetical order.  I would look at all of the nice houses, telling myself that I was going to Brooklyn College.  I psyched myself up about meeting new people and having new experiences.

 

TRR:  Norman graduated from Brooklyn College and went back to his alma mater, Abraham Lincoln High School to student teach.

 

"Sabbath Bride"

“Sabbath Bride”

 

In May, 1956, I am being supervised by my teacher from Brooklyn College.  I’m teaching an art class that I’ve been working with since February.  Everything is going well – the timing is perfect, the results are terrific. The bell rings and everyone leaves, but this one 15 year old perky blond student walks up the aisle to speak with me.  I’m expecting this great question about the art lesson and she says to me,’ Mr. Berman, do you  use Old Spice aftershave lotion?’   Yes, I do! (Her name was Susan Slater).

 

Susan Slater ended up dating my brother.  She had an aunt who lived in East New York in a two-family building that was owned by Ethel’s sister. She thought it would be nice to fix up Norman with Ethel…  In September , 1960, she set up Norman on a blind date with Ethel.  The rest is history!  As Norman points out, if he had gone to Parsons, he would not have ended up student teaching and being introduced to his “beshert”, Ethel.  Our first date was on Ethel’s birthday. We were married for 52 years.

 

 

"Blue Totem"

“Blue Totem”

After graduation with my BA and Ma from Brooklyn College, I taught Junior High and moved on to High School.  I concentrated on teaching painting as part of the curriculum, along with art history and color theory. From my own experiences, I encouraged my students to learn and research their subjects.  Research is an essential part of any good piece of artwork!   My favorite part of the curriculum was teaching painting.  I was privileged to have a number of students from the “Art Talent Classes”.  These were students who took art classes five days a week and showed promise.  I continued teaching and eventually became a supervisor (Assistant Principal) .  I taught in a few different schools and  in 1983 was awarded the ‘Art Educator Award’ from the New York City Art Teacher’s Association/UFT in recognition of my outstanding service and commitment to art education.  I also held the rank of Adjunct Assistant Professor of Art at Queensborough College where I taught painting, drawing, two-dimensional design, advertising design and art history.  I finally retired in January, 1991.

 

"Our Father, Our King: Aveenu Malkainu"

“Our Father, Our King: Aveenu Malkainu”

 

TRR:  Tell us more about your own artwork.  On your website, you differentiate between two different types of art.  One is the “Prayer Shawl Series” and then “the rest”.

NB:

 

Somewhere, there is a interrelationship.  Some of my larger paintings incorporate Hebrew words from Jewish prayers.  The ‘Lecha Dodi’ piece that is on the Armory Art Center invitation, is from the prayer service which welcomes the Sabbath.  It refers to the oncoming Sabbath as a bride.  In my living room, is a powerful piece of bright yellow hues titled ‘Aveenu Malkeinu’ (Our Father, Our King”, which comes from the High Holy Day liturgy.   I created the ‘Prayer Shawl (‘Tallis’) Series’, one for each year’s Jewish New Year’s card for my family.

 

"Miinyan"

“Minyan”

During my studies at Brooklyn College, three or four faculty members really influenced me: Jimmy Ernst (son of Max), Carl Robert Holty ( a disciple of Mondrian), and Harry Holtzman.  Stylistically, Jimmy showed me how calligraphy and linear work can influence a piece of artwork; how to allow just enough, without overpowering the piece.  Holty taught me to take Mondrian’s rectangles and squares and change their edges from white to various tints and shades of color, allowing work to “float” in one plane over the other.  He helped me capture my creative imagination through color relationships.  Holty subscribed to Hans Hoffman’s theory of “Push and Pull”.  Holtzman, who never taught studio, explained the theory of modern art, abstract theory and how to analyze what the creative process was all about.  He was one of the people who managed to help Mondrian get into this country.  The faculty of Brooklyn College in the 50’s and 60’s were influential artists, bringing new ideas and changes to the art world. They were the top names in the Abstract Expressionist Movement.   Having Mark Rothko as a teacher, certainly influenced me.  I subscribe to the Abstract Art Movement’s credo “The act of painting is more important than the product.  As Mark Rothko says, “My paintings are made to engulf you.”

 

"Lake of The Snow Moon"

“Lake of The Snow Moon”

At the same time as I was teaching, I was also creating and showing my own work.  I believe strongly that to be able to teach art, you must be involved in the creative process yourself!  You have to live through the agony of that blank canvas and the ecstasy of a finished piece of art.   

 

TRR:  Does your art tell a story?

NB:

 

Good question!    Usually, my art does not tell a story.   It suggests to the observer a set of images. My piece, ‘Lake of Snow Moon’ is unusual in that aspect, for me.  I normally don’t create narrative pieces of work like that.  When we lived in Queens, it was very different for people like my neighbor, Murray Tinkleman, who had to produce a spot drawing for ‘Field & Stream’ of a sailfish.  As an illustrator, he had to complete a considerable amount of research.  What does a kid from Brooklyn know about a sailfish?  Murray became Chairman of the Illustration Department at Parsons School of Design and then went on to Syracuse University.  The toughest part of being an abstract painter is when people ask me , ‘well, what is that supposed to be?’  If my response is that I cannot tell them and they have to determine for themselves, it sounds dismissive.  I don’t want to be that way.  If the spectator is not willing to engage and think and wonder ‘what does that look like?’, I cannot establish that for them.

 

I like the subtlety of color relationships and that shows in a majority of my work.  Even after graduation from Brooklyn College, I would go to Carl Holty’s  studio and show him my work and talk about these theories.  Then I started to show my work in galleries in Greenwich Village, eventually moving to galleries uptown.

 

 

"Tekiyah"

“Tekiyah”

TRR:  What is your favorite part of being an artist?

NB:

 

When the piece is ready to sign!   I have exhibited widely in the New York metropolitan area and my work appears in numerous private collections across the country.  The Queensborough Community College Gallery has my work in its permanent collection.  My work has been displayed in libraries around Nassau and Suffolk Counties in New York as well as the Polish Consulate in Manhattan, the GE Gallery in Schenectady, NY and the SONY Gallery in New York City.

 

"Slowly Comes The Night"

“Slowly Comes The Night”

 

TRR:  What  tips would you give beginning artists?

NB:

 

Don’t be afraid to do what you want to do!  Your images will grow and your style will change.  That is OK.  For me, selling my work is a secondary thought.  I love what I do.  But, at the same time, don’t be afraid to market yourself.  I know this is difficult because one is fearful thinking about it.  Most artists aren’t trained to sell their work.

 

 

"Eclipse 2009"

“Eclipse 2009″

TRR:  Can you take us through the process of a painting?

NB:

 

When we relocated to Florida, I moved away from working with oils.  Fundamentally, I now use watercolor.  I start out with a blank sheet of paper.  I add floating colors next.  After that, I bring in wide calligraphic lines, getting thinner and thinner to create an intricate ‘lace-like’ network. The final effort is to come up with a title.  When I reread two of my favorite books, “My Name is Asher Lev” and “The Gift of Asher Lev”  by Chaim Potok, while I was not as prolific as Asher Lev, I had many of the same experiences as he did, growing up in Brooklyn.

 

I rarely work from sketches or small studies.  I put up a piece of illustration board, watercolor paper or canvas ( when I worked in oils). I don’t buy this notion that art is for self-enjoyment. Art is a challenge to let your mind and brain create images through your hand that I find pleasing, interesting and challenging.  The one thing  about the 1950’s and 1960’s about theories in art  in colleges was that the act of painting was more important than the product.  If you finish the product and you like it, sign and you’re done.  Fine.   If you finish a product that you don’t like, it is also fine to rip it up and throw it away.   In fact, in Mark Rothko’s class, he would have you create a piece of art, then tear it up and reconstruct it!

 

 

 

"Scylla and Charybdis"

“Scylla and Charybdis”

 

I have never created collage with my artwork.  When I am finished with a painting, I sign it and that’s it!  That’s not a “beshert” moment.  It is an “Aha” moment.   When you look at your piece and know that it is enough, you are done.    If you’re not sure, stop painting and turn the piece facing the wall.  Turn it around and look at it in another 6 weeks.  Look at it with fresh eyes.  My best best and most instant critic was Ethel…

 

TRR:  Norman is a visionary.  With all the hullaballoo about recycling and using “found objects” to make art in our current times, Norman and colleague Andrew Pinto co-wrote  “Art from Clutter” in 1976.  Why then?

NB:

 

We did all of the work ourselves.  We wrote it, made the objects and even took the photographs!   Robert Rauschenberg was beginning to explore these things, in the  early Pop Art Movement.  He used non-traditional materials and objects in innovative combinations. I  see it as an extension of the Abstract Expressionism Movement, expanding into another direction.  The book was to be the first in a series of using “found objects” to make collage, frottage ( rubbings) and assemblage.  We went to great lengths to get permission to use historic images and information as part of the book’s literature.  (Museum of Primitive Art, Museum of Contemporary Art, MOMA).  It was exciting when we took our kids to Washington, DC to the Library of Congress and found it in the card catalogue!  The owner of the publishing company unfortunately passed away and the company dissolved, so no further books were written in the series.

 

"Neilah"

“Neilah”

 

 

TRR:  How do you recharge your creativity?

BN:

 

I love photography.  If I am not doing that, I try to spend time at my easel every day.  I tend to like working on only one piece at a time.  I like the continuity from day to day, as my layers build up.

 

"Job"

“Job”

TRR:  Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers?

NB:

 

I do have a physical limitation, which prevents me from working on large canvases, which I used to do in oils and in acrylics. I was diagnosed with ‘brittle bone disease’ (osteogenesis imperfecta). Because of my disability, I limit myself to working on full sheet or a double elephant size Arches’ Bright White 300 lb. Cold Press paper or 140 lb. Arches Bright White paper.  In reading a research paper about OI, it stated that those with the disease tend to be very optimistic people, with strong motivations.  We get up.  We do.  We are positive.  I hope more people find out about the OI Foundation.wwwOIF.org   My granddaughter, Mira, uses art as an outlet because she cannot run around like other kids, due to this brittle bone issue.

In 2012, Norman served as Coordinator for the Artists of Palm Beach County’s exhibit at the Armory Art Center.  He had no idea how complex this administrative job would become.  He comments, “Being an educator gives you a multiplicity of skills”.  Two Armory Art Center Faculty members judged the show. I met Talya Lerman and established a relationship with the Armory Art Center.

 

Norman has dedicated this exhibit to his late wife and life-partner, Ethel.  He will show 20-25 pieces at the Armory Art Center.  “Awe and Reverence”  will show some of his abstract paintings as well a images of the journey through his Jewish heritage.  The “Awe” bridges the gap between some of the abstractions and the reverential images of Berman’s heritage.
