RAMEL    JASIR

 

“Sankofa” by Ramel Jasir

 

 

Ramel was born and raised in Portsmouth, Virginia and has been involved in creative art since he was very young.  His older brother introduced him to art by having him draw Batman’s ears.  This was the beginning of his evolving as an artist. He is a self taught artist who hones his skills through experimental learning, research and a passion to bring realism, authenticity and strong emotion to all his creations.  

 

“An Orange Moon” by Ramel Jasir

 

Ramel continues to evolve as an artist and is inspired by the plurality of his cultural heritage and the diverse cultural and tribal art by Native, Americans and the petroglyph art of Puerto Rico.  He uses the beauty and diversity of the people to reaffirm the commonalities that bind us as one humanity. 

 

 

“Incompredido” by Ramel Jasir

 

He creates art that is inspiring, evocative, educational and true.  Ramel tells The Rickie Report, “I like to describe my work as a voice in color that resonates various emotionally charged motifs of love, family, universal human rights and politics”.

“Spirit and Truth” by Lynn Doyal

 

 

 This is event is open to members and non-members 

 

 

“Deep Calls Deep” by Lynn Doyal

 

 

 

Lynn is a native Floridian who attended Nova High School and received her degree in Fine Art from the University of South Florida.  Following graduation she put her paint brushes down in favor of working in the corporate world.  She worked for Exxon in New York for three years, transferring with them to Florida.  She then left Exxon and worked for Xerox before starting her own company, Signature Chocolates, which specialized in providing premiums and incentives for corporations, hotels and cruise lines.

 

“Enter by the Narrow Gate” by Lynn Doyal

 

 

After raising her family, Lynn resumed her creative endeavors and developed her unique method of marrying contemporary design with old school techniques using handstiching, beading, oil and acrylic paint all done on canvas to bring her images to life in an innovative way.  Her original pieces of exquisite handstiching can best be appreciated up close.  When her designs are enlarged they make for a more abstract and dramatic component.  The same image can have a different impact when size is introduced.  

 

 

“This marriage of image, techinique and materials is distinctive and causes people to talk about what they are seeing because there is nothing else like it.”

Acrylic Painting by Maxwell Taylor

 

 

 

Maxwell was born on New Providence Island, Bahamas.  His artistic talent was discovered as a young schoolboy and early in life he was apprenticed to the fabled Chelsea Pottery.  He later moved to New York and studied at the Art Students League of New York and took further studies in photo silkscreen at the Pratt Graphic Center and printmaking at The Printmaking Workshop.  His uncompromising commitment to black power artists is evidenced in his woodcuts, etchings and stark canvases.  He admired and was influenced by Daumier, Braque and Picasso.

 

Wood cut print by Maxwell Taylor

 

 

 

Maxwell left New York after 20 years and traveled to South Carolina and Europe, observing the social, economic and political dynamics of many cultures but never forgetting his Bahamian roots.  In 1983 he was one of ten artists selected to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Bahamian Independence. Maxwell has had a one man show in Nassau, was represented in the exhibition “Bahamian Art Today” at Brent Malone’s Matinee Gallery and is found in the collections of Nat King Cole and Sir Harry Christie.  He received the Fellowship Award from the Southern Arts Federation for works on paper by the National Endowment for the Arts.     

 

 

Woodcut print by Maxwell Taylor

 

This versatile artist and accomplished technician has become a master of a variety of media.  He is renowned for his ceramics and paintings but it is in his printmaking that he excels using an ancient technique of cutting wood.  In his career he has explored themes of universality, despair, celebration and atrocities.

Sandra Encaoua was born in Paris and is a well known and acclaimed artist in France and many other European countries.  She began painting and drawing as a young girl, teaching herself to mix several mediums until she had the prefect effect she wanted.  She graduated from a Parisian school of art.

 

 

Sandra tells The Rickie Report, ” Sometimes I create with watercolors when I want a quick expression of the moment, but I work mainly in oils on large canvases, as I like the transparency and vibration of the oils”.   Her semi-abstract paintings reflect Sandra’s love of nature and raw elements.  Her landscapes and portraits are a mixture of flaming red with sparking white and bright turquoise.  Her paintings infer strength, vitality and gentleness.

 

“Fragile” by Sandra Encaoua

 

 

 

Sandra won the 2013 competition of Young Talent in France, was the featured 2015 “Artist of the Day” on the famous website Saatchi Art and won the 2017 French Award Arts-Sciences-Letters of the French Academy of Arts-Sciences-Letters in Paris.  She has just recently had an exhibition at the famous Kinor Gallery in Paris and will have another in Paris in July 2019. She splits her time between Paris and Miami.   

 

 

 

“Palimpsest” by Sandra Encaoua

 

 

 

Sandra’s works have been exhibited in the US, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, and France, to high acclaim.  Her subject matter is prolific and she offers classes as well as “paint parties” at her studio.

Maria draws on the life around her as inspiration for her jewelry designs using lines in nature and patterns in architecture and construction materials.  Her pieces are like line drawings, clean and simple so that the viewer’s attention is solely on the design.

As an Art Therapist she has worked in the Cook County Department of Corrections in Chicago, Drug Abuse Foundation of Palm Beach County and Healing Art in West Palm Beach.  Maria allows the client to determine what they need from therapy and tailors how she works to meet their needs, using the art materials as a baseline for conversation.  This helps the client practice creative problem solving skills that parallel skills needed in real life.

“Dipped In Red” by Lara Chapman

 

Lara Chapman was looking for a better way to connect with her local community when she purchased a camera two years ago, and began visiting local parks and attractions.  She found a profound love for nature photography and poetry as seen through a camera lens.  Lara has since written hundreds of poems and taken thousands of photographs and created the “Poetry Picturebook Series”.  Her award winning photographs are on display throughout Palm Beach County and beyond.

 

“Red Hot Lowres” by Lara Chapman

 

 

Lara finds satisfaction in watching her work come to life and does most of her own printing and framing on archival fine art paper.  Her photography is a visual medium for showing the exquisite beauty of nature in the world.  Her work showcases the treasures of the planet boldly and without reservation.  Lara lives in West Palm Beach with her husband, two children, one dog and four cats.
