“Off The Hook” Steam Punk creation with recycled materials by Janet Bird Fuller

 

Janet Bird Fuller is a 3D, steam punk & industrial assemblage artist who creates all of her work from found objects  and reclaimed material (often found in curbside trash).  Her specialty is STEAMPUNK, a form of Victorian science fiction and fantasy that speculates, “What would the past look like if the future had happened sooner?”  It involves contraptions constructed from lots of gears, gadgets and gizmos.

 

 

Laura Kinnemon 

 

Collage using watch faces and other memorabilia by Laura Kinnemon

 

 

Working in collage and assemblage, Laura Kinnemon’s take on portraits and animals, using found items in such a different way, is unique. Each individual item tells a story, and contributes to the final piece.

 

Teala Krapfl 

 

 

“El Guacamole” by Teala Krapfl

 

 

Teala Krapfl paints in oils and also draws using graphite on paper. She tries to bring a nostalgic feel to her art, to give the a sense that her characters have lived. They feel familiar and inviting, but there’s some room left for the viewer to fill in their story.

 

Yolanda Luce

 

 

Scene painted by Yolanda Luce

 

 

Yolanda Luce’s art is driven by her faith, her family and love of photography, music and travel. Each painting is a moment in time, snapped in her mind’s eye.

Sheila Parcell

 

Artwork by Sheila Parcell

 

 

Sheila Parcell is a native Floridian, who uses mixed media to reflect her deep faith in honoring the messy nature of being human and being woman. Her intent is to use her art (and humor) to lift women up.

 

 

 

Rita Polizzi

 

Painting on board by Rita Polizzi

 

 

Rita Polizzi is an acrylic painter who captures the tropical landscapes and diverse wildlife of the Treasure Coast. Working both on canvas and reclaimed wood, her paintings have a realistic style with a hint of whimsy.

 

 

 

Diane Stark Kennedy

 

 

 

Stained Glass Objects by Diane Stark Kennedy

 

Diane Stark Kennedy creates original design glass panels, lamps, suncatchers and boxes. She is ‘Naturally Inspired’ (the apropos name of her business) by the wealth of sea life and wildlife in Florida.

 

 

 

Lora Yakimov

 

 

Sculpture by Lora Yakimov

 

 

Lora Yakimov casts and welds pewter sea life into 3-D freestanding and wall sculptures. The transparency of her unique fossil figures symbolize the twin truths of outer decay and simultaneous inner renewal. “…for the things which are seen are temporal, but the unseen is eternal”

 

“Balloons in Water” by Lori Yakimov

 

Lora Yakimov uses the symbolism of playful balloons as a metaphor for life (fragile transparent spheres filled with breath, water, light and color)

MEET    THE    ARTISTS:

 

 

Janis Clary (Oehlschlager) and Danuta Rothschild

 

 

 

Janis Clary (Oehlschlager) tells The Rickie Report, “From childhood, the difference was evident: Just as Andrew Wyeth found a certain joy, mystery, and fulfillment in the subtleties of white, black, sepia, and brown tones, I discovered COLOR – all colors and every color! In the first grade, my teacher handed me the first “big box” of crayons I had ever seen, and the picture drawn and colored used every single color in the box – including silver!”

 

 

 

Danuta Rothschild tells The Rickie Report, “While I am creating my art, I step into a space that allows me to connect with the Universe…to tap into the unknown.  My intention is that the viewer will not only see carefully chosen colors, images, shadow and light, but will step with me into the magic of the moment…that they will feel the excitement of unplanned surprised that show up on the canvas.  This is the excitement that fulfills me when I am creating.”

 

 

View of D&J Art Gallery

 

 

Janis is the last of six siblings, born in rural Greenville, SC, so competition was an everyday experience. She says, “If my siblings could do something, or even my mother, there was an absolute need to do it as well – – or better. An artistic mother served as great inspiration for everything art – color, music, style, performance, writing poetry and, finally, drawing and painting!  Serious studies began in my early twenties with private lessons from a highly educated German born artist who taught me the techniques of the Old Masters”.

“On the Nest” by Janis Clary

 

In the early 1980’s, Janis discovered a deep passion for painting wildlife. She continues, “This focus allowed me to assign life to each piece through the eyes of my subjects – the window to the very soul within the subject! I come to each canvas open-minded and ready to create the space with wonder and life.  There is a freedom in the flow of paints filling the canvas with the colors of life.  It is my world, my longing to be within the depths of losing myself in the process of bringing my subjects to life. My art takes the viewer on the journey through my eyes, seeing that spark that assigns life, captures its very soul, and explores the mood of the environment”.

Janis’ works drew the attention of collectors and galleries as she participated in exhibitions in Central Florida.  She says, “In 2010, my life changed as I moved to South Carolina and became involved in the world of art there, participating in classes well as private sessions in Pawleys Island, SC and Georgetown, SC where I participated in many shows at the Georgetown Cultural Council. I was featured in a Solo exhibition in Georgetown.  My works are on exhibit in private and corporate collections, both in the United States and internationally.  My medium of choice is oil painting, though acrylic is now gaining momentum”.

 

 

 

 

The scope of Danuta’s artistry is diverse and provocative, as they weave an historical tapestry, including her own take on the Masters.  An artist of considerable stature, Danuta created several series of paintings covering a wide range of subjects.  In her “Art About Art” series, she portrays her favorite painters (Cezanne, Picasso, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, and Modigliani) combining portraits with elements of their well-known works.  Half homage, half subtle mischief, these whimsical paintings reveal more about Danuta to the viewer.

Danuta’s art provides a sense of social commentary about relevant issues, both spiritual and profound.  It is rare to see the intensity of emotion, scope of subject matter, and true understanding of the human psyche and spirit as she sees it.  Danuta can take soul-wrenching subjects and make them palatable and magical, while allowing us to ask the pertinent questions that moves us to go deeper within ourselves, revealing new understandings.
