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

 

 

 

“Hannah” by Lynn Doyal

 

 

From realistic to representational to abstract, these artworks are a splendid fusion of contemporary design with a reverence for the techniques of the past.  Lynn Doyal’s technique of combining various media such as digital photography, painting, fiber hand stitching, and beading are exclusive to her creative process, resulting in artworks that engage the viewer on multiple levels.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Neon Shells” by Lynn Doyal 

 

 

 

 

Due to the intricate number of details in each painting, Lynn’s work is best viewed up close in order to appreciate the fine workmanship. Many of her works are scanned, enlarged and digitalized allowing for a more abstract and dramatic experience. She delights in the different impact the same image can have when size is introduced as an additional element.

 

 

 

 

 

“Enter By The Narrow Gate” by Lynn Doyal 

 

 

Lynn tells The Rickie Report, “All my work is initially created on canvas incorporating a digital image and/or “free-hand” painting.  I go back into the image using hand stitched fiber threads and beading to bring a textural element to the artwork.  This canvas is then photographed in high definition and digitized so that the image can be output on a variety of surfaces including glass, metal, canvas, tile, and vinyl – which allows for SCALE to become an essential element in the visual experience.  The unique way in which the artwork is photographed and digitized yield 2-D images that look 3-D.  Seeing the detailed hand crafting and brush strokes is an experience that most every viewer describes as “Cool!” because it fools the eye.  There is nothing else like it!

 

 

 

 

 

“Dew From Heaven” by Lynn Doyal

 

 

While it is natural to try and visually link the Biblical artwork titles with the image, the artwork titles follow my spiritual direction, whereas my visual imagery is reflective of my artistic direction”. Lynn Doyal

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Glorious  Things Are Spoken” by Lynn Doyal 

 

 

 

As an established studio artist, Lynn’s interest to create Public Art began in 2016 when she became a volunteer for Palm Beach County Art in Public Places program.  “Simultaneously, I started an apprenticeship with a professional Public Artist. These opportunities afforded a wealth of information into the public art realm. I have since received several public art commissions and am advancing my career in this industry”.

 

 

 

 

“Hibiscus” by Lynn Doyal 

 

 

 

 

Lynn’s artistry has been seen at galleries and exhibitions in Florida, New York City, and countless places in between.  She is a member of Florida Association of Public Art Professionals (FAPAP), Wellington Art Society, Wellington, FL.  A native Floridian, born in Miami, Lynn resides in Boca Raton.

Video Installation, “Climate Change” by Cheryl Maeder

 

Cheryl Maeder tells The Rickie Report, “The core of the work is “connection”; the connection to the self, each other and to all life forms on this planet…” Maeder’s photography became the inspiration for the Dove Campaign on ‘Real Women, Real Beauty’, which transformed the way women are viewed in the global media.

 

 

 

 

Video installation by Cheryl Maeder

 

 

 

Cheryl Maeder is intuitively linked to everything in the world around her and us. Now is our chance to see a variety of her works which focus on relatedness. She speaks for Mother Nature, as a guide to all of us.  The core of Cheryl Maeder’s work is about “connection”; the connection to the self, each other and to all life forms on this planet.  It is Maeder’s philosophy, that we humans are not only of this world, we are also connected to the broader universe.  It is this concept that permeates throughout her limited edition photographs and video installations…

 

 

 

“Submerged I” by Cheryl Maeder

 

RCK Gallery owner, Clay Kanzler shares, “Cheryl Maeder will also be featuring a video installation in the main gallery which will be very exciting for Stuart to enjoy! Come and discover this unique exhibition as RCK brings the incredible experience to The Treasure Coast!” Maeder’s installations have been exhibited in public art platforms on climate change and the environment in the United States, South America & Europe.

In 2005, Maeder relocated her studio to the Miami area and deeply immersed herself into fine art photography and filmmaking.

“Antique Racer” by John Bowen

 

 

John Bowen was born in New York City and spent the next nineteen years there and in North Jersey. He stated painting with watercolors in his senior year of High School, before enlisting in the United States Air Force in 1961. He was an illustrator in the Air Force for eight years, including a one-year tour in South Vietnam, graphically documenting Airlift Operations in 1968. He self-published an illustrated memoir in 2013. The book, “Eleven Months and Nineteen Days “, was awarded a silver medal by the Florida Authors and Publishers Association in 2014. In 1969, Bowen left the Service, moved to South Florida, and went to work in the Advertising Art Department of the Miami Herald.

 

 

 

 

“Eleven Months and Nineteen Days” by John Bowen

 

 

 

John spent the next 40 years working in the newspaper advertising business before retiring. Throughout all those years, Bowen was creating paintings in watercolor for his own pleasure. Bowen now paints full time and is a Signature Member of the Florida Watercolor and Gold Coast Watercolor Societies and an Associate Member of the American Society of Marine Artists.  

 

 

Since 2011, John has been the Artist In Residence at Vizcaya House and Gardens in Miami, FL.  His artwork has been exbhited locally and nationally, garnering numerous awards for his paintings.

“Carolina Wren” by John Bowen

 

 

John tells The Rickie Report, “Realistic expressionism is how I describe my work. Capturing a mode, striving to tell a story, intrigued by history, landscapes and themes, these are the inspirations that create my art.  I emphasize the play of light and shadow as seen in nature and describe textures of time in historic places. Each painting is carefully planned from exploration through execution. Plein air painting, sketching, photography, using whatever means possible to achieve my vision.  I combine both opaque and transparent watercolors on heavy (300 lb) archival paper.  I work patiently as I create the final piece which expresses the beauty that inspired me.”

 

 

 

 

“High and Dry” by John Bowen

 

 

 

Founded in 1989, GardensArt is a unique program that exhibits the work of locally and nationally recognized professional artists and photographers. It was established to increase the opportunities for cultural exchange between artists and the community.

ARTIST STATEMENT: “I have always wondered why statements are necessary from artists, unless their statements are not clear in their work.  I think my paintings are strong enough to make their own, and that is my statement about my artist statement”. – Alice Murdoch

 

 

 

Clay Kanzler tells The Rickie Report, “Not many times in life is one granted the chance to honor a Fallen Best Friend as I am getting the chance to do on April 22.  Alice Murdock and I were in a show in 1989 and have been best friends ever since with also the added wonderful element of both of us wanting to paint!   She was funny, honest, abrupt, true, humble, stylish, loyal, ran a gorgeous home, cooked and entertained like Martha Stewart did before Martha knew where the kitchen was.  She was also a complete pain in the *** for me because she would always tell me the truth – no matter what about my many dating misadventures or what she truly thought about my painting… there was no stopping her and to be quite honest… I am lost without her.  I love you Alice”
