The Rickie Report knows you will be amazed at what a pair of scissors can do to paper in the hands of newcomer, Emilio Aponte-Sierra. Artist Steve Brouse, definitely thinks outside the realm of the canvas when he paints! Come to the opening – you won’t be disappointed!
Clay Glass Metal Stone Cooperative Gallery
Rock-Paper-Scissors and Paint
Friday, May 17
15 South J. Street, Lake Worth FL
Child’s Play: Rock, Paper, Scissors, is one of the first learning games we engage in as children. We take chances using our fists and fingers; we learn strategies as we scrutinize our opponents, trying to out-maneuver their next ploy. Add “Paint” to the mix and we attain the building blocks, the very basis of a child’s entry into the cognitive and creative world of exploration and knowledge.
Clay, Glass Metal Stone Gallery’s newest artists have taken these, the simplest of materials, and have finessed them to the highest of art forms. Emilio Aponte-Sierra and Steve Brouse will be featured on Friday, May 17 from 6-9 PM with a Wine, Cheese and Dessert opening at the Gallery’s new location, 15 South J Street in Downtown Lake Worth.
Emilio Aponte-Sierra has made his entire life’s work an art form, manipulating the most basic of materials into astonishing creations of great depth and character. In his work as Guidance Counselor, he uses his art forms as expressions of his concerns for HIV/AIDS prevention. His striking images hit hard with message and symbolism, yet transcend as works that stand on their own beyond the message. His unique cuts, folds and interlacings roll and twist as recycled papers create life-sized figures. These forms, encased in Lucite boxes have become a focal point of J Street’s newest gallery. Emilio arrived here (Palm Beach) from Valledupar, Colombia via Miami. Neither Rocks nor Paint, but Paper and Scissors are his language of creation.
Lake Worth artist Steve Brouse takes his Paper, Scissors and Rocks and turns them into wondrous and magical creations with the use of bright and intricate paint designs. Like the child who first starts to paint, covers the paper, then her feet, then her hands and works her way up her body to the walls and floors (before daddy catches her), Steve’s paintings may start on flat surfaces but they then pour off onto shoes and tables and cars and walls…and, oh well, Steve will paint on anything.
His child-like color combinations belie the amazing imagery filled with whimsy, filled with fun and filled with delight. His use of color brightens up the world around him bringing an unexpected sense of joy upon a chance encounter. Steve’s works welcome the approaching long days of summer and brighten up the dark nights of winter.
