“Quartet 1” by Judith Rosenberg

 

Judith Rosenberg tells The Rickie Report, “Painting and the creation of art are a great source of physical and intellectual pleasure for me.  Since retiring from Judith Jack, Inc., the jewelry design firm my husband, Jack and I founded, I’ve had the luxury of time to devote to a life-long love, the creation of art. Portraying women in all their diversity and drama is a subject that continues to inspire me. I have merged my original acrylic paintings and my latest interest, photography. My published writings on the subjects of historical fashion and jewelry, and the research necessary to be factual, have inspired me to portray women – bold, daring, playful or conservative – who so creatively present themselves to the world. Literature, fashion, museums, architecture and nature have been influences on me as well”.

“Metropolis”  by Judith Rosenberg

 

 

Judith’s recent incorporation of her photography and her paintings have led to exciting results! “I’ve recently designed a series of “Women of the Flowers.” A sequence of steps is performed to achieve what I hope are distinctive results: I paint in acrylics, photograph the image then using the computer, alter colors, change backgrounds and continue to design.  I work on these artworks until my head and my heart say, “Enough!” Having them printed on an aluminum sheet offers drama, elegance and quality that sets them apart from any other process – complete, unique and without the need for framing, ready to adorn your home!  There are endless uses for the various mediums and tools that are available for artistic expression. I hope that the observer truly enjoys the marrying of media and the many aspects of beauty I have chosen in creating my art”.

 

“Blush” Sketch by Judith Rosenberg

 

Judith is a member of  Artists of Palm Beach County, Artists Registry, National League of American Pen Women, Palm Beach Photographic Center, Armory Art Center, Artists Association of Jupiter, Women in the Visual Arts, Lighthouse Art Gallery, and the Broward Art Guild.  She has published articles on historical fashion/art/jewelry through the ages: Jeweler’s Circular Keystone, Modern Jeweler, National Jeweler, and through appraisal societies.

 

 

 

JACK   ROSENBERG’S  MOST  RECENT  EXHIBITION

JADITE  GALLERY

NEW YORK, NEW YORK

 

 

NYC4PA, the New York City of Photograph Art held an art exhibit at the Jadite Gallery in Hell’s Kitchen, NYC.  The theme of the call for this juried show was “Wandering Curves – the Curve Changes Everything.”  Jack’s “Three Martinis” certainly respond to that!

 

 

 

jackrosenbergthree-martinis-1-4

“Three martinis” by Jack Rosenberg

 

 

 

 

After graduating from Brooklyn College, Jack worked as a microbiologist and then as a medical supply salesman to doctors and hospitals. His growing interest in antique jewelry led him to become, along with his wife, Judith, co-founder and CEO of Judith Jack, Inc., a jewelry design firm with international sales. Together with the design staff, Jack took pleasure in putting his own ideas into play. He says, “After selling the business and retiring, my artistic side flowered. Charcoals, drawing, painting and sculpting became part of my ever-expressing means of creativity. My awareness of shapes, colors, textures and forms in their splendor impelled me to continue to investigate a variety of methods and materials”.

 

“Woven” by Jack Rosenberg

 

Jack excitedly says, “Then, I discovered photography!  I found my true love! As I look through the lens of a camera, I see and appreciate the world around me in a new and exhilarating way.  Everything else is shut out of the world at that moment.  I am only focused on what I see through the lens”.  Jack goes one to share, “Photographypermits me to fully and continuously express my artistic vision and share my passion with others.  As I fundamentally believe, everything in our physical surroundings can become the subject of a meaningful photograph. I relish humanizing inanimate objects and creating scenes from unexpected sources.  Every photograph tells a unique story – real or imagined – and, hopefully evokes thought and pleasure in the viewer’s mind”.
