Steve Blackwood Creates “Timeless” Memories

 Steve Blackwood’s clocks offer a special insight into his fertile and creative mind.  The Rickie Report loves that his work is functional, nostalgic and artistic all at the same time!  His creations are based on memories and a fascination with science fiction.  What he brings to us is unique objects, where “time” has more meaning than just the hands on the clock.  Steve’s studio is located in Artists Alley in Delray Beach.  Don’t miss December 19th’s Open Studios and a chance to buy one of Steve’s limited edition clocks in his Collector Series!  More details are in this article.

OPEN STUDIOS

 

Thursday, December 19, 2013

 

6 – 9 pm

 

 

 

Steve Blackwood recently opened his own working studio within Artists’ Alley.  He also shows his work at Cacace Fine Art, a few steps away.  Artists’ Alley Studios and Galleries are open Saturdays 12:00 – 5:00 pm, but the best time to visit is the third Thursday of each month, when everyone is open. Be there on December 19 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm. You can wander in and out of small and large spaces, speak with the artists and gain some insight into their amazing work. 

 

 

 

Steve is eager to talk about the parts of objects which he has combined with other objects and created the most whimsical time pieces ever imagined. A graduate of the Art Institute of Chicago, he has melded his passion for artistry with his long-time fascination with mechanics. His earlier clocks include a highly polished metal and neon with sleek contemporary designs which were featured in Niche Magazine. Collectors from around the world seek Steve out because his clocks are just unique!

 

Cowboy Steve

Steve’s work is shown at galleries around the country, but Delray Beach is “home”.   His pieces are in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago and the U.S. Art and Embassies Collection and private collections.

 

"My First Rocket"

“My First Rocket”

 

 

Steve’s new work is the largest and perhaps most thought provoking yet. At 123 inches tall,  his time machine titled “My First Rocket” is overwhelming when you first see it. 

 

 

NASA Steve

NASA Steve

 

“At the age of five I was introduced to rocket ships at a NASA display. I was hooked on space travel and the adventures that I would have. My cowboy suit was now set aside for space travels…”My First Rocket” is a piece that represents the amazing adventures and travels I had as a boy, come to life. A machine that has a thousand stories to tell”, Steve shares with us.

 

Another view of "My First Rocket"

“A thick 600 volt power cord drives two propellers; a travel gear spins a warp drive forward and reverse in time and wings unfold to guide the journey. At the top lives the moon which of course is made of cheese!”, he explains.   (A 1905 patent plate and lucky #47 cow tag is incorporated for rocket licensing purposes).

 

"Americana"

“Americana”

 

“My Americana clock pays tribute to the things I saw growing up as a kid like a barber shop, baby carriage parts, tractor stuff on the farm lands of  Midwestern DeKalb, IL. Stuff you just don’t see anymore….My work keeps getting bigger. I love this scale. When I was a kid everything around me was so big.  I just love building machines that makes people smile and remember their fond journeys in life”, he says.

 

 

"Time Travel" and "Flash"

“Time Travel” and “Flash”

 

 

Steve has created paper cut out clocks for the Holiday season from two of his most popular clocks: “Time Traveler” and “Flash”. They are a limited, signed edition of 50 and he will be producing different ones throughout the year as part of a Collectable Series.   They are available at Blackwood studio/gallery and at Cacace Fine Art where Steve’s large clocks can be seen.  Both galleries are in Artists Alley.

She tells The Rickie Report, “I discover new things about myself and the creative process nearly every day,” she admits.
We love her use unique gift for color and style, which transfers easily from wood, to glass and canvas.  Her range is wide and The Rickie Report believes people will easily find a piece of artwork they gravitate toward.

James has been an artist and educator of oil painting for the last 40 years.  His work ranges from neo-impressionist landscapes to expressionistic abstracts and is collected internationally.  His roots are from Buffalo, NY, Gloucester, MA and the mountains of NC.  He was a personal friend and painted with Emil Gruppe.

His bold, painterly style with thick, juicy strokes of beautiful color is admired by both artists and collectors. This will be the largest exhibition of his work this year and is a wonderful opportunity to acquire an original James P. Kerr for your collection.
