The Box Gallery Presents “CONCEPTualism 2019” In Partnership With Art Synergy And Art Palm Beach

A collaborative team of artists have transformed 4000 square feet at The Box Gallery to create a paradigm where their interdependent concepts are woven together, literally and metaphorically.  “CONCEPTualism 2019”  opens at The Box Gallery on Saturday, January 12. Kudos to Rolando Chang Barrero for his insight and vision, bringing this exhibition to fruition, at a time when many people wonder, “Is it art?”.  “CONCEPTualism 2019” takes place in conjunction with Art Synergy and ArtPalmBeach.  The Rickie Report shares the details of this free exhibit and some sneak peeks!

CONCEPTualism 2019

In Partnership with Art Synergy and Art Palm Beach

Opening Reception:

Saturday, January 12, 2019

7 PM

The Box Gallery

811 Belvedere Road    West Palm Beach, Florida 33405

Exhibition Dates: 1.12.2019 – 1.31.19

This exhibit is free, but please rsvp below:

 

 

 

 

 

Introduction by Andrea Iaroc:

In her essay,“Contemporary Issues by Conceptualism”by Andrea Iaroc, she states, ” Art needs a concept in order to exist. By definition, a concept is an abstract idea, a general notion, a plan or intention — a conception. Now, how well defined that concept is and the concern within it (e.g. sociopolitical commentary), and depending on the art piece’s placement in history, it may be considered ‘Conceptual Art’ or belong to one of the 30+ art movements in art history.

 

In contemporary art spaces, it is common to hear “is it art?” in reference to Conceptual Art. Instead, I propose we ask: How is the artist trying to communicate their ideas through what we experience visually, olfactory, tactilely, or even through sound and taste? Looking past the aesthetics of art requires a discerning eye and a curious mind. This means that as audiences, we should open our minds to what Conceptual Art offers us and enter into these conversations to transcend our ideas of what art is supposed to deal with and look like.

 

A concern with environmental issues and understanding of wildlife’s importance in our lives is fundamental part of Diane Arrieta’s body of work. She has a BFA in Ceramic Sculpture from Florida Atlantic University and a MSC in Wildlife Health from the University of Edinburgh. These two disciplines are smoothly syncretized in her work, although she uses a variety of media apart from ceramics. In observing her work, Sentinel, it is difficult to miss the references to the Disney version of Snow White, a coming-of-age tale first documented by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm in 1812. In this particular work a meerkat stands guard next to the young girl, begging the thought of switching their roles: Our future planet in the hands of our young. In our current sociocultural moment of awakening, it is quite fitting that the sculpture is a girl.

 

 

Feminism, like any ideology and movement, exists in a spectrum. What was acceptable or unacceptable to second-wave feminists is not acceptable or acceptable to fourth-wave feminists, but a constant remains true: the acknowledgement of female bodies, personhoods, and identities as fully human – with rights and opportunities for all. Linda Behar goes beyond the trappings of the present and gives us tools to forge a better future through her varied artistic practice. She captures womanhood without the boundaries imposed by society, be it body shape, comportment, or any other conventions given to that role. Conventions that are also challenged by Sibel Kocabaşi in her work, as well as pressing issues of violence against women, global effects of war and migration, and environmental consciousness.

 

 

History without revisions has a lot to teach, if only proper attention is given. And yet events that should redefine our ways, are collectively forgotten and mistakes are made again – impermanent lessons. Impermanence is one of the concepts that underscore Giannina Coppiano Dwin’s work by using ephemeral materials. Her practice in general touches upon socio-cultural issues and in this particular exhibit, the #MeToo movement. At this point in history we have to reckon with the fact that women are simply not believed when reporting sexual assault, violence, and abuse of power. Yet Arrieta, Behar, Kocabaşi, and Dwin not only represent feminine power and truth channeled through their work, they assert it in all its Mother Gaia greatness for everyone to see, feel, and act upon. Policy changes and societal attitudes need to change in order to actively move the current system forward.

 

 

In a world of faulty systems, denialism, paranoid conspiracies, and extreme polarities, the need to create bridges of understanding and compassion is urgent. Technology has been a key factor in these divisions but it is also the key to repair that rupture. It can help people recognize the importance of understanding climate change and its connection to increasing natural disasters, smart usage of green technology to provide alternative energy sources, and sustainable living. These ideas are hard to ignore when looking at Rick Newton’s work from the jump. Remnants of the Florida we know teem with technologically advanced structures and devices, yet crab claws seem to reign supreme over a post-apocalyptic world that signals the end of the Anthropocene epoch. And yet, his paintings have an aura of hope – not necessarily for humans but for the greater natural world that currently begs for a chance

Meet the Artists:

 

 

Artwork by Sibel Kocabaşi

 

SIBEL KOCABASI 

 “Although the subject is weighty and cruel, I decided that the art should be thoughtful and contemplative.  In Istanbul, I studied manuscript illumination, (in Turkish ‘Tezhip’ which means “painting with gold”).  I also studied traditional rug design and weaving. The combination of all of those studies together have shaped my mind and my skills today. In this particular project, I wanted to emphasize the idea of the contrast between the beautifully detailed handmade rugs, and the gold disposable emergency blankets which were given to the refuges when they arrived in Europe. Gold has many meanings in different cultures (predominantly as a signifier of wealth). The old rug has its own story, its own journey.  Nomadic cultures use rugs as shelters, the rugs are handmade, contain emotional and sentimental symbolisms to the users; in contrast, the gold emergency blankets are disposable, lightweight and mass-produced but yet, they perform the same function of sheltering the itinerants”.   

 

 

DIANE ARRIETA 

“I feel the types of art being shown today has shifted a bit. I see a return to more social, message based works. Olafur Eliasson stated,  “I believe that one of the major responsibilities of artists – and the idea that artists have responsibilities may come as a surprise to some – is to help people not only get to know and understand something with their minds but also to feel it emotionally and physically. By doing this, art can mitigate the numbing effect created by the glut of information we are faced with today, and motivate people to turn thinking into doing” (Eliasson, 2016).

 

Artwork by Diane Arrieta

 

 

“Regardless of shrinking budgets, all the talk of unequal representations, corporate sponsors in museums…. I can see a rise in important social content being shown. That being said, I think the tense climate of society requires a really gentle and engaging approach to these topics. I am not a fan of shock art or full blown activist in your face art. [I used to be, but things mellow with age!] It leaves very little room for equal conversations. People are tired and scared. This is the niche where my work comes in. I am not hammering my ideals in my art. There is an intricacy of my views in the beginning of making the work, but hopefully it transforms into universal ideas and topics that help move the conversation forward”. 

GIANNINA COPPIANO DWI

 
“My artistic practice of late are calls to protect and restore the environment, to heal it, to care for the earth as we care for ourselves.  To restore it we must first heal personally, as a community and globally through mutual understanding.  The awareness that it is all interconnected and that “the welfare of one is bound up in the welfare of all” (Keller) is of prime importance”.

 

 

“For this exhibition, I will be showing images from a performance I did in a Salt Lake in Texas together with objects and installation inspired from that event.  In Spanish, almost all things have gender, Salt in Spanish is La Sal, and its gender is feminine.  Metaphorically during the performance, La Sal represented the female energy of the earth and the female body in an era in which sexual harassment, rape, intimidation and abuse of power is being brought to light because women, in acts of courage, are coming forward with what has been happening to them silently all through history as part of everyday life”.  
 
 

LINDA BEHAR 

 
“I’m an artist whose interest in shapes manifests itself through a variety of media.  I seek to bring forward the contradictions between the expectations of society and an individual’s sense of self.  My focus is on women and the stark standards that have been established for a woman’s appearance.  After finding a study made by the U.S. government in 1940 to standardize the women body, I created a geometrical shape using the measurements generated by the study and presented in drawings and in three-dimensional figures”.

 

 

 

 

Artwork ( Foreground) by Linda Behar   Artwork (Background) by Giannina Coppiano Dwin

“The exploration of shape goes deeper through my work with the study of body language.  The pose is shapes, and shape is both a noun and a verb, to understand the human behavior is imperative to see it at a whole. Body language gave a visual form to identity and enhanced the visual aesthetics of communication. You are what you create, as much as you are what you perform. My goal is to create images that echo the past, confront the present, and embrace the future”.

Irene Jalowayski’s “Fly Away” Is Featured At Continuum Art Palm Beach 2019 And Upcoming Classes

Irene Jalowayski‘s hand made glass creations have truly taken flight, as her newest cast glass wall art, “Fly Away” will be one of the featured artworks at Continuum / Art Palm Beach 2019.  Irene’s increasingly detailed process as a glass artist shows the degree to which she has pushed herself to stretch boundaries, and in glass work, that is challenging!  The viewer can feel the excitement of her creative process.  In addition to Continuum, Irene sells her work at Artisans On The Ave in Lake Worth. She teaches at McMow Art Glass and at The Craft Gallery.  The Rickie Report brings you her most recent creations and urges everyone to stop by to see them in person or sign up for a class

Lace Glass Vase by Irene Jalowayski

 

 

 

 

Florida native, Irene Jalowayski works primarily in fused glass, cast glass, and mixed media. Her most recent cast glass creation, “Fly Away” will be one of the featured one-of-a-kind art pieces at Continuum 2019, during Art Palm Beach2019.  Her fused art glass pieces are filled with colorful dichroic glass mixed in bright, beautiful backgrounds. The viewer can feel the excitement of the creative process!

 

 

 

Rainbow Menorah by Irene Jalowayski

 

 

 

Irene’s abstract sculptures will enhance any decor.  Irene’s functional art pieces include cast glass jewelry boxes, bowls, vases, plates of varying sizes, and small accent tables. Her Judaica array includes mezzuzahs, candle sticks, menorahs, matzah plates, and she offers to create a unique bowl using the shards of the glass which is broken during the wedding ceremony!

 

 

 

Fused glass birds wall hanging by Irene Jalowayski

 

 

In 2013, Irene was featured as an emerging artist at ArtiGras. She studied with Sidney Escowitz and has taken classes with McMow Art Glass and Art Glass Environments, before becoming a teacher herself!  She never loses sight of the creative excitement when she open a kiln.  She shares that enthusiasm with her students.

 

 

 

 

Brass blue bracelet by Irene Jalowayski 

 

 

 

Irene’s jewelry pieces are distinctive. Her wearable art pieces include one-of-a-kind necklaces, earrings, and cuff bracelets.  Each object is truly unique, not only due to the glass work, but because she understands the wearer’s need to own a singular adornment.

 

 

Commissioned glass bowl with blue glass shards from wedding ceremony, by Irene Jalowayski

 

 

 

 

Her personal glass collection in includes creations from the United States, Italy, and Sweden. Irene’s inspiration comes from nature and her own imagination, as you will see with “Fly Away”.  The process of casting glass is complicated and more difficult than that of fused glass.  First, Irene makes a clay sculpture. Over the weeks that it takes to dry, she will continue to incise, brush, and assure that the mold is exact.  Then she casts the mold in plaster.  Once the plaster is dry, the mold is filled with glass and fired to 450 degrees for 38 hours.  Once cooled, the mold is broken away from the glass, resulting in a solid piece of glass which will never be reproduced!
