Yury Lobo Announces SOLO Exhibition and Documentary

Yury Lobo, has been dubbed “Jack The Whipper” by his fellow American artists. He was raised in a small rural town in Russia, in a conservative environment, where the signs “No Trespassing” hung on every door. By pure chance in 1959, at the age of 12, he and his mother attended the first American Exhibition in Moscow. Besides Cadillac cars and Coca Cola, Yury was particularly struck by the action painting, “Cathedral” by American abstract expressionist, Jackson Pollock ( Jack The Dripper). That day changed the trajectory of his life forever. Pushing boundaries, ignoring all “No Trespassing” signs internally and externally, Yury found freedom in the United States. He has finally fully opened up to new heights of artistic expression. The race to catch up with Pollock is ongoing… The Rickie Report shares details of his SOLO Exhibition at Artworks International in West Palm Beach, FL, February 12-13thThe public is invited to this Free Exhibit and there is ample free parking.

Since his early childhood, Yury Slobodenuk has been fascinated with the world of wild colors and the art of collage. However, he never considered becoming a professional artist partly due to the lack of encouragement from his parents and partly due to the general disapproval of this “degenerate art” by the Soviet authorities. What stands out in his memory is a visit to the first American National Exhibition with his mother in July, 1959, featuring among others, Jackson Pollock’s “Cathedral”. Yury was shocked and amazed at the same time. He tells The Rickie Report, “Most visitors considered it a joke..in bad taste. But the impact on my subconscious at the age of 12 was life changing. That is why my interests centered later on with more avant-garde artists. I appreciate Van Gogh, Chagall, Kandinsky, Malevich, Picasso, Matisse, Miro, Brague, Warhol, Rothko, Klimt, Shiele, Modigliani and of course, Pollock.”

Yury created a few paintings for close friends and family, trusting his inner instincts. Back then, in the USSR he didn’t have the courage to paint and share his passion for abstract expressionism and collage publicly. Keeping his painting mostly to himself, he pursued a career that was more economically sound. He received a Masters degree in German and English, studied the history of art and worked as a licensed multilingual guide at the majors art museums in the former USSR. He became a journalist, interpreter, German teacher, TV script writer.

Having fled the USSR in 1991 for political reasons, Yury first established himself in Miami and pursued his journalism career, working for several Russian-American newspapers. Later, he started one of his own, but sold it in 2007 and moved to West Palm Beach, where he continues his career as a German teacher and now a contemporary artist. The freedom of expression in America has motivated and inspired Yury to fulfill the dream of his youth – sharing his creative side publicly. His artistic name, “Lobo” is a shortened form of his long Ukrainian last name, “Slobodenyuk”, which translates to ” a free man”. “Lobo” means “wolf”, the symbol of the tireless will, yearning for freedom.

Yury tells The Rickie Report, ” My fellow countryman, Kasimir Malevich once said, ‘Comrades, arise, free yourselves from the tyranny of objects!’ In this sense, I, like him, consider myself an abstract artist and a revolutionary. My battle cry is ‘Stop copying the world! Create a new one!’ Whoever is afraid of bright colors is afraid of life, which I am not”. Furthermore, Yuri confesses, ” I know it sounds nuts, but I consider myself a kind of modern reincarnation of the late Jackson Pollock who, in his own words was a “cowboy” painter. Like him, I’m painting “from the hip”, creating huge abstract compositions within minutes, using brusque wild strokes of bold colors. Some of my colleagues (part joking, part serious) are dubbing me “Jack The Whipper” for whipping that canvas with paint instead of dripping it as Jack The Dripper (Jackson Pollock) did”.

Yury goes on to explain, “In the art of collage, I represent a completely different point of view. My slightly distorted collages are pretty close to reality and filled with hidden ironies and sometimes tragic messages. Being a history buff, I can’t help but act as the mocking bird, laughing at the human inability to learn from history…which of course sees that such ignorance is doomed to repeat itself. Every collage is a “time capsule” with a message to future generations. A true artist is about the inner energy which he or she tunnels to the public through the art. If there is no reaction at the receiving end, then the energy was either poor or lost in artistic translation”.

Amy Broderick’s creative practice encompasses studio production, art writing, excellence in teaching, and academic leadership. She uses the processes of drawing and paper construction to explore the methods we humans use to locate ourselves relative to our physical and information environments. Amy teaches her students to do what all scholars (and responsible citizens) do: engage passionately with the world and with their field; devour new knowledge, influences, and inspiration; integrate and own all of these, weaving them into their scholarly selves; and then articulate their knowledge, passions, and questions through sincere, honest, researched, and elegant original works.

 

Amy earned her BA in Studio Art at the College of William and Mary, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa. She earned her MFA in Painting at the Hoffberger School of Painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art, where she studied with Grace Hartigan. In 2000, Amy joined the faculty at Florida Atlantic University as Assistant Professor of Art in the Wilkes Honors College. She was the first fine artist on the new college’s faculty.

 

 

Over the course of four years, Amy developed and implemented a fine arts curriculum and concentration within the Honors College’s interdisciplinary liberal arts curriculum. She was then invited to lead the redevelopment of the foundations curriculum in FAU’s School of the Arts, where she earned tenure and now serves as Associate Professor of Drawing and Painting and Foundations Program Coordinator.

 

Amy has won numerous awards for teaching and scholarly activity, including the Award for Excellence and Innovation in Undergraduate Teaching (FAU), Master Teacher Award (FAU), Honors Faculty Fellowship (FAU), Florida Individual Artist Fellowship, and South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship for Visual and Media Artists. She was recently awarded an Emerging Arts Administrator Fellowship by the National Council of Arts Administrators (NCAA).

 

 

Amy has exhibited extensively at venues that include Miami Art Museum, Jacksonville Museum of Contemporary Art, Sarratt Gallery at Vanderbilt University, School 33 in Baltimore, and Tomio Koyama Gallery in Tokyo, Japan. She has also published scholarly articles and exhibition reviews in SECAC Review, FATE in Review, and the Palm Beach ArtsPaper.

 

 

Amy serves on the Board of Directors of the Southeast College Art Conference as the board’s Florida representative. She also serves on the Alumni Council of the Maryland Institute College of Art, and she represents Miami and Palm Beach on the council’s Regional Initiatives Committee. Amy lives in Jupiter, Florida with her husband, Mark, and their sons.

ManonSanderRight Turn

“Right Turn” by Manon Sander

 

 

 

Born in West Berlin, Germany, Manon grew up in Berlin and Bavaria. Being exposed to the best of both worlds led to Manon’s appreciation for a metropolitan city’s cultural riches but also to her intimate connection to the outdoors of beautiful Bavaria with its lakes, mountains and quaint little villages. Her childhood days were mostly spent either drawing and painting or roaming around outside. Parents who would frequently point out the importance of never to lose one’s sense of wonder in regards to nature’s beauty planted the seed in Manon to pay attention to details of her surroundings, making it easy for her to find inspiration where ever she goes. Creating art to this day never feels like a pastime but like a necessity.

 

 

Aiming for Birdie

“Aiming for Birdie” by Manon Sander

 

 

After moving with her husband to Chicago, Manon pursued her love of painting by painting murals which are represented in numerous private homes and stores in Illinois, Michigan, Florida and California. Getting introduced to the work of well- known Californian impressionist painters as well as moving to the San Francisco area in 2006 were the igniting sparks to plunge herself into plein air and studio painting in oil. Living in Marin County provided a unique opportunity to study with the best and to finally combine Manon’s love of the outdoors with the portability of oil paints to create on the spot. Oils became quickly her favorite medium, allowing her to have an ongoing conversation with her subject. Under the watch of distinguished and renowned artists, Manon studied how to make a painting that combines rich texture and vivid color while capturing the expression of her subject and the impression it left on her.

 

 

Squawk Squad

“Squawk Squad” by Manon Sander

 

 

 

In 2010 painting Marin’s vast variety of water, hills, incredible flora and fauna, unique structures and last but not least that almost palpable golden Californian light was replaced by all that sunny, buggy, and wonderful Florida has to offer. Manon and her family moved to Palm Beach County, where she dipped right into painting the trademarks of a tropical setting which proves to provide her with a never-ending stream of inspiration and an almost magnetic attraction to the ocean and its surroundings.

In addition to painting en plein air, Manon often picks random objects like items found in a tool box or Oreo cookies and a glass of milk for a still life set-up. To Manon it doesn’t matter so much what she paints, since she is mostly interested in the effect the light has on an object. Capturing the light is what drives Manon to make a painting.

 

 

 

 

Comfort Zone

“Comfort Zone” by Manon Sander

 

 

Manon puts down her impressions in thick juicy oil paint, applied with gusto and bold brushstrokes: the sunlight that creates lavender shadows on the white clothing of people walking by the water’s edge deep in conversation; surfers and paddle boarders catching an aquamarine wave; boats at rest and on a journey; sea creatures and birds that call Florida their home, are among the countless things that get her so excited that she can’t wait to get out her paints and easel to capture them on canvas. It is happiness and love of life Manon aims to share with the viewer in paintings that reflect the color, light and joy that she is surrounded by and is ever so grateful for.

 

 

Lifesaver

“Lifesaver” by Manon Sander

 

 

 

 

 

Manon is very active in the “plein air scene” and has been juried into the 3rd annual Plein Air Festival at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta from March 9-13 which attracts top national talent and is not to be missed!  She will also participate in “Plein Fun”, a painting competition in Delray Beach February 20th, and the Winter Park “Paint Out” by the Albin Polasek Museum from April 24-30.

 

You can also see Manon’s Artwork at:

 

  • ArtPalmBeach2016 in the ArtSynergy booth from January 21-24, at the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach.

  • “Wild Florida” at the Cornell Museum in Delray Beach from January 14 – April 17.

  • “Nostalgic Delray” at the Delray Beach Historical Society

  • “Floral Fusion 2016” at Jonathan Dickinson State Park, January 15th to February 28 .

  • Manon has four paintings in Jim Snyder’s new book: “James D. Snyder: A Trip Down the Loxahatchee”, focusing on the river’s history and beauty in paintings and photographs. Pharos Books, 2015. p. 12, 16, 96, 97

 

Manon tells The Rickie Report,”Painting is my way to bring attention to the beauty found everywhere in our immediate surroundings, seen by those who are willing to slow down and look.  I find inspiration for my next painting not necessarily in an object considered beautiful in the conventional sense since my desire to paint is mostly ignited by watching the light hitting an object a certain way. Illuminating something in all its brilliance while creating wonderful colors and designs in the shadows, light has the power to elevate an object from the mundane to the exquisite. How light influences color has been a source of endless fascination for me. Expressing my joie de vivre through loose brushstrokes in combination with a well thought-through design and a vibrant color choice translates into a painting that resonates not only with me as artist but also with the viewer, offering him a view of things that might otherwise have gone unnoticed”.

 

Tall Stack

“Tall Stack” by Manon Sander

 

 

Manon’s paintings continue to be exhibited in numerous juried exhibitions in California and Florida, have won awards and are in private collections on three continents. She teaches oil painting through the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, FL. She is a member of Oil Painters of America, North County Art Association and Artists’ Guild of Lighthouse ArtCenter.

Breaking Samsara by Ronn Jaffe

“Breaking Samsara” by Ronn Jaffe

 

 

Palm Beach resident Jaffe has enjoyed an internationally recognized career as a conceptual contemporary artist, noted interior architect and furniture designer. His work has long explored the relationship between reality and dimensional illusionism, and the tension between positive and negative space, but the added media elements in The Holloman-ex Samsara take his work into new territory. Inspired by Jaffe’s life-long interest in mythology and philosophy, The “Holloman – ex Samsara” represents Everyman ‘seeking the way’ to fulfill the emptiness in the flow to meaning. “It is about breaking the cycle from illusion to enlightenment”, says Jaffe.

 

 

 

Beginning in the late 60’s, Jaffe created and developed the “portoid” – open spaces within his pieces. These portal/void spaces allowed the normally two-dimensional work to bring the background and foregrounds integrate into each piece, creating interaction between the work and the ever-changing world around it. The “Holloman-ex Samsara” reveals the evolution of not only Jaffe’s work, but of himself as an artist – from his beginning flat pieces, to his bas relief to the evolution into full 3-D, multi-media creations.

 

 

Included in this exhibition will be a whole new series of work highlighting sculpture from Jaffe’s Holloman series: a Portrait with a Video Eye, kinetic swiveling sculpture heads as homage to Robert Rauschenberg, intriguing Hollo Animation Films, as well as, an Andy Warhol one up called ‘15 Seconds of Fame’.

Holloman” by Ronn Jaffe

 

 

 

Ronn Jaffe tells The Rickie Report, “I work in the flow between the conscious/unconscious, I’m at my best when emerged in the joy and passion of creation.”  Picasso invented Cubism, Calder the Mobile, and Warhol Pop Art. Ronn Jaffe made a name for himself in the 1960’s, by inventing the ‘Multicam’ and the ‘Portoid.’ Ronn’s work has been noted for receiving a wide array of prestigious awards, which span the entire course of his career in interior architecture, writing, and contemporary conceptual art. Jaffe’s work is owned by several of the top 100 collectors in the world, as well as notables like Aristotle Onassis, the Sultan of Brunei, the Countess de Quatro, to name a few.

 

 

 

 

Ronn Jaffe, born in Washington, D.C., began his art experience at age 10 at the Corcoran Museum School. Jaffe continuing his artistic pursuits, after Graduating from Boston University and Harvard Graduate School of Design, had his first solo show in 1968 at the Park Place Gallery. Famed curator Walter Hopps gave an outstanding personal review of this first show and the show was a complete sell out on opening night. Art critic Liz Whitney wrote glowingly about Ronn’s innovative and bold work. Ronn left fine art for a time, returning in early 2000 to a full time pursuit of art; bringing us to a mature body of work that has evolved into its full prime and continues to engage both the public and art connoisseur. He currently lives in Palm Beach, Florida, with his wife, partner, and love of his life, Mars.

 

 

 

 

The “Holloman – ex Samsara” Solo exhibition by Ronn Jaffe opens at EmKo January 22 with an open reception from 6 – 9 pm at EmKo, located at 2119 S Dixie Hwy. in West Palm Beach. The “Holloman” runs through February 14.
