MEET    THE    ARTISTS:

 

 

Janis Clary (Oehlschlager) and Danuta Rothschild

 

 

 

Janis Clary (Oehlschlager) tells The Rickie Report, “From childhood, the difference was evident: Just as Andrew Wyeth found a certain joy, mystery, and fulfillment in the subtleties of white, black, sepia, and brown tones, I discovered COLOR – all colors and every color! In the first grade, my teacher handed me the first “big box” of crayons I had ever seen, and the picture drawn and colored used every single color in the box – including silver!”

 

 

 

Danuta Rothschild tells The Rickie Report, “While I am creating my art, I step into a space that allows me to connect with the Universe…to tap into the unknown.  My intention is that the viewer will not only see carefully chosen colors, images, shadow and light, but will step with me into the magic of the moment…that they will feel the excitement of unplanned surprised that show up on the canvas.  This is the excitement that fulfills me when I am creating.”

Janis is the last of six siblings, born in rural Greenville, SC, so competition was an everyday experience. She says, “If my siblings could do something, or even my mother, there was an absolute need to do it as well – – or better. An artistic mother served as great inspiration for everything art – color, music, style, performance, writing poetry and, finally, drawing and painting!  Serious studies began in my early twenties with private lessons from a highly educated German born artist who taught me the techniques of the Old Masters”.

Danuta Rothschild is an internationally known, respected award winning artist.  She was a Featured Artist at the most recent Palm Beach Art Show at the Palm Beach Convention Center (February,2021), and her works are included in “Celebrating 40 Years of Arts4All  Florida”,  a rigorously juried exhibition being shown at the Florida Capitol 22nd Floor Gallery in Tallahassee now through  March 26, 2021.  A native of Poland, she has lived in California and is now located in Stuart, FL.  Danuta’s works have been shown in prestigious museums in Poland, France, Bosnia, and the United States, where she participated in numerous exhibits in CA.  Having appeared in TV shows world wide, she has become an established artist with much respect.  Danuta’s artworks are in public and private collections throughout the world. 

 

 

 

“On the Nest” by Janis Clary

 

In the early 1980’s, Janis discovered a deep passion for painting wildlife. She continues, “This focus allowed me to assign life to each piece through the eyes of my subjects – the window to the very soul within the subject! I come to each canvas open-minded and ready to create the space with wonder and life.  There is a freedom in the flow of paints filling the canvas with the colors of life.  It is my world, my longing to be within the depths of losing myself in the process of bringing my subjects to life. My art takes the viewer on the journey through my eyes, seeing that spark that assigns life, captures its very soul, and explores the mood of the environment”.

Janis’ works drew the attention of collectors and galleries as she participated in exhibitions in Central Florida.  She says, “In 2010, my life changed as I moved to South Carolina and became involved in the world of art there, participating in classes well as private sessions in Pawleys Island, SC and Georgetown, SC where I participated in many shows at the Georgetown Cultural Council. I was featured in a Solo exhibition in Georgetown.  My works are on exhibit in private and corporate collections, both in the United States and internationally.  My medium of choice is oil painting, though acrylic is now gaining momentum”.

 

 

 

 

The scope of Danuta’s artistry is diverse and provocative, as they weave an historical tapestry, including her own take on the Masters.  An artist of considerable stature, Danuta created several series of paintings covering a wide range of subjects.  In her “Art About Art” series, she portrays her favorite painters (Cezanne, Picasso, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, and Modigliani) combining portraits with elements of their well-known works.  Half homage, half subtle mischief, these whimsical paintings reveal more about Danuta to the viewer.  

 

 

 

Artwork by Danuta Rothschild 

 

Danuta’s art provides a sense of social commentary about relevant issues, both spiritual and profound.  It is rare to see the intensity of emotion, scope of subject matter, and true understanding of the human psyche and spirit as she sees it.  Danuta can take soul-wrenching subjects and make them palatable and magical, while allowing us to ask the pertinent questions that moves us to go deeper within ourselves, revealing new understandings.
