For me, my art is a celebration of the colors.”

Hailed By Critics For Her “Subjective Realism” Approach, Eran Far Offers Three Abstract Painting Classes At Hobe Sound Fine Arts League

Eran Far is an Iranian/American artist whose formal training began at the Kamal El Molk Art Academy in Tehran.  Under the direction of great academics in Brussels and the Art Students League of New York, her artistry matured into a unique style which combines the abstract and expressionist movements.  Eran is offering 3 workshops ( individual or they can be combined) to students interested in exploring abstract art, at the Hobe Sound Fine Arts League on February 16, February 23 and March 2.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks of her exquisite artistry!

Eran Far
 

 

 

 

Hailed by critics as “subjective realism”, Eran Far’s expressive and hypnotic style evokes thoughts that carry the mind from the reality of nature to abstract expressions of emotion.  She tells The Rickie Report, “Through my watercolors and mixed media, I want to explain beauty and harmony beyond the traditional and expected ways. My paintings reflect all the scenes and incidents that affected me deeply…sounds, lights, colors. This, together with the experience of “crossing into the world beyond’ which is inexplicable even to myself, is the main texture of my paintings”.

 

 

 

Eran attributes the creative expressions in her paintings to hard days and happy days growing up in Tehran, and to her life travels in different parts of the world. Born to older parents, Eran grew up in a largely adult world.  Encouraged to be fiercely competitive and having an appetite for singing, theater, and dance, Eran performed happily before her home audiences.  She also had an innate love for design, appreciating the depth of color and nuance.

 

 

“Summer Breeze” by Eran Far

 

 

Biographer, Fleeta E. Fox, talks about Eran: “ Her art and painting had their beginnings at Kamal el Molk Academy in Teheran.  As she studied the Masters and began painting, she felt that her own paintings were superficial and  “too copycat”.   With an unbridled need to express herself from within, Eran rejected and discarded the idea of painting altogether and “forgot art”.  Eran joined her brother in Brooklyn, NY  to continue her college studies”. 

 

Eran was  inspired by the creativity and history of the New York World’s Fair, as “lighting, scenery, and theater all impacted her and opened new horizons”.  She was energized by her nascent experiences in the bustling city. In the seventies, as Eran grieved her mother’s death, she sought reprieve by traveling to the south of France and later to Brussels.  Eran says, “The yellow lights of Brussels inspired me to try painting once again”.  But, being restricted to traditional art forms, her spirit for expression and creative form was dampened.

 

“Class Recess” by Eran Far

 

 

 

A return to New York City, brought Eran to classes at the Students Art League. In this new-found space, Eran’s love of Modern Art was finally released.  She told Fleeta E. Fox the following story.  

 

The students were assigned small spaces on a table upon which to work. They were allowed to paint on a small canvas. One day during class, an instructor approached Eran and said, “Why are you painting in this space? What are you doing? You need more space….”

Eran responded, “That’s what we’re allowed”.

She was instructed to purchase a larger canvas and work on the floor. For the very first time in her life, she was painting with large, sweeping strokes and “painting her heart out”! Inspired by her mentor who believed in her gift, she was encouraged to “excavate her soul” and paint from within. She was also inspired by a fellow art student, illustrator, and scholar who recognized and encouraged her development into a fine artist. He later became her husband.

 

 

At the prestigious Art Students League of New York, Eran studied on and off for over two decades (1990-2012) under Master artists Joseph Stapleton, Anita Steckel, and Dale Myer. Eran’s style of painting was recognized as “Subjective Realism” within abstract expressionist style.

 

For two decades and prior to relocating to Florida, Eran also served as a computer programmer and systems analyst for NCR Corporation, an international manufacturing company in both Iran and New York.  She later jointed Metropolitan Life of New York, as a financial representative.

 

“Nature’s Choreography” by Eran Far

 

 

 

Eran currently works as a private art instructor, conducting art workshops, and participating in art shows in different venues in Florida.  Her paintings speak for themselves.  They have been presented in art shows in New York, Berlin, Paris, Teheran, and Nice.  In 2015, Eran made her home in Stuart, Florida, where she shares her art with residents of the Treasure Coast, as well as “sharing her secrets” through her upcoming classes.  Her paintings are included in numerous art collections internationally.  She is available for commissions.

Painting as Life’s Great Companion

 

“Painting is a companion with whom one may hope to walk a great part of life’s journey.” -Winston Churchill

 

Caryl Pomales tells The Rickie Report, “Art has been a treasured companion in my life since early childhood, when I discovered my love for creating vibrant and colorful pieces on any paper or canvas I could get my hands on. Painting has stuck by my side as a close friend during my diversified career paths, in which I explored different fields but couldn’t devote all my time and energy to my true passion. Finally, art has been a long-time friend I’ve been able to reconnect with, greeting me with open arms and welcoming me back, as I’ve made it my career”.

 

 

“Rose” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

“I personally love thinking of painting as a companion in life. This has felt remarkably applicable in my journey, as it has been a comfort, a joy, and a judgment-free pleasure that I’ve been able to return to time and time again every step of the way. Like a trusted and true companion, my relationship with painting has evolved as my life experience has grown and expanded. Our “conversation topics” and “dialogues” have broadened as I’ve explored more of the world and broadened my horizons. As I have gone on journeys across the globe, I am constantly thinking of my tried-and-true companion. I collect images with this in mind, snapping pictures that inspire me, keeping an eye out for potential subjects, and noticing and appreciating the colors, shapes, people, and animals that surround me. No matter where in the world I have been, I always return home ready to paint”.

 

“Picasso’s Virtue of Curiosity” by Caryl Pomales

 

A true passion sticks with you loyally, and is not easy to shake. My personal story serves as evidence of that. Despite my diversified careers, each fulfilling and successful in its own way, I have always found my way back to painting as my companion and true passion. This love, present from my days on the playground, sketching animals in colorful crayons and markers, never dwindled across the years, and has been present throughout a huge portion of my life’s journey.

 

Untitled by Caryl Pomales

 

 

 

Winston Churchill profoundly noted how painting can accompany you throughout your journey, and I have found this to be an absolute truth in my life. I hope that, whatever your passion may be, you’re able to bring it along with you on your path!

 

 

“Cheerful Blush” by Caryl Pomales

“Calling” by Edrian Thomidis

 

 

 

 

Edrian’s artistic talent was recognized at an early age and sent her on to the University of Florida’s New World School of the Arts. After graduation she worked as a Creative Director, designing web sites, original logos, business cards and posters for South Florida businesses.  She moved on to producing web sites for large corporations such as Sony, Pepsi, Discovery and Microsoft.  She became proficient in programming, usability and information architecture.  

 

 

“Secrets” by Edrian Thomidis

 

 

 

Outside of the corporate world, Edrian illustrated many images used in books, magazines and shirts.  In 2014, she suffered the loss of a loved one and in looking for an outlet for her grief, took a ceramic class at the Armory Art Center.  She found working with clay presented a challenge and led to her creating unique sculptures. Her demonstration will show her evolution as an artist and how she applies decorations and patterns to her sculptures.

 

“Disappointment” by Edrian Thomidis

 

 

Edrian is a member of the Ceramic League of the Palm Beaches, the Wellington Art Society, the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County and the Women in the Visual Arts Organization.  Her sculptures are in many private collections around the world and in regional galleries.  She has won many awards for her work.
