TRR:  Were you always creative?

SC:

I was artistic and stubborn from day one! Although my love was for Ancient history and my dream was to become to be an archeologist, drawing and painting was big part of my life and made up most of my classes. During Middle School, I took local classes from Eliad, a local artist. My father, a mechanic and welder, made metal arrangements and figurines as a side hobby, so creativity was a large part of my family life.  My school advisor encouraged me, so I took the exams to enter one of the best art schools at the time, in Haifa. I was willing to commute 1.5 hours a day to attend the Professional Art School of ORT Hana Senesh.

 

 

TRR: What kind of art medium did you initially work in ?

SC:

I painted with oils in the beginning and continued to push myself to try other mediums as well, including pottery, China ink, wood carving, and more.  My favorite was creating etched gravures.

 

 

 

 

TRR: What made you decide to try metal work?

SC:

In 2006, my primary creative medium was synthetic fabric collages, which I learned from Smadar Livne. I suffered a tragic electrical fire in  my studio which destroyed nearly 5 years of my work. As with most artists, I had no insurance.  I had been working on collection for prestigious solo show and all of my fabric collages had been stored in the studio. After that, I found mentally challenging to keep painting. The tragedy triggered my swing of media. For distraction, I started working with metal and was grateful when a friend who was a historic copper roof contractor offered me some leftovers from his job site.

 

 

 

 

 

 

TRR:  Your style is distinctive !  What inspires you to try new sculptures?

SC:

I just can’t stop creating and exploring.  New ideas are typically born as I work on a project and I can’t wait to finish current work to start a new one!  Anything probably can trigger a new design to appear in my mind, only one thing I never do is to copy anyone else – this is taboo for me.  Honestly I have no need to grab other people’s ideas – I hope to live long enough to finish half of mine.

 

 

 

 

TRR: You have a depth of knowledge that speaks to your creativity.  Tell us more about being an illustrator, graphic designer, art director, radio jingle writer, and program director.

SC:

I would have never survived a static occupation, even with the promise of a bright future because I was always looking for innovational ways to feed my creative hunger. Graphic design is a form of art both visually and subconsciously. While it is commercial, it is still art. I worked as illustrator, graphic designer and eventually Art Director at a weekly newspaper (with about 200 pages every week). But as everything became routine, I eventually left for a radio job and enjoyed years of Jingle writing and program directing, securing myself a piece of all the visual advertisement go through my design studio at the time.

 

 

 

 

TRR:  What kinds of books do you enjoy reading?

SC:

I usually read about 3 books a week in Hebrew, Russian and English. I enjoy the Classics like Emil Zola and Victor Hugo as well as memoirs and history.  Science Fiction continues to be a favorite in my heart, because of unlimited fantasy and creativity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

TRR: Tell us more about your inventive cooking!

SC:

My father was an amazing cook (my mother was good, too) and he constantly experimented with dishes, sharing with family and friends, same way as I do now. Cooking is art in itself. Mixing and matching a spice bouquet is no different from color matching in a way. I love to trigger my taste buds and take pleasure in eating good food. It can be as simple as a baked potato with a feta or farmer cheese filling, to marinating lamb for 4 days with wine and roasted greens. I do have a special place in my heart for filled French/ Greek/Balkan (both sweet and savory puff pastry – guilty as charged).

 

 

 

 

 

TRR: Do you prefer any one type of metal or stone to work with ?

SC:

I love copper for its natural amazing and surprising color shades and flexibility. I am intrigued with the idea that it’s a core natural mineral from nature. Stones are my second love and I love them all, naturally pretty and different. Marble and granite have less of my admiration because they have been used so much commercially and they can be monotonous in small sizes. Give me limestones or flagstone which are colorful and unique in their patterns.  I can spend hours in local landscape yards to hand pick each piece.

 

 

 

TRR: Tell us more about your classes

SC:

There has been a demand for classes for some time, but I still struggle with liability insurance issues because I work with an open flame and smoldering metal. I am focusing on offering online classes on my YouTube channel, which is in the process of completion.

 

TRR:  Each creation is one-of-a-kind.  Do you offer commissions?

SC:

I am always open to creating a special piece of artwork for a client.  My creativity thrives on their enthusiasm!

Boca Raton Fine Art Shows™ Shares their Passion For Fine Art And Fine Craft At Mizner Amphitheater November 3 & 4

Renowned organizer Hot Works, LLC is bringing two Fine Art and Fine Craft shows to Boca Raton this season, November 3 & 4 at Mizner Park Amphitheater and January 26 & 27, 2019 in Sanborn Square Park, N.E. 1st Avenue and E. Boca Raton Road in downtown Boca. One of the artists whose work will be prominently featured is Marvin ‘Murf’ Murphy of Weston. The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks!

 

 

 

 

Hot Works

Boca Raton Fine Art Shows

Your Art. Our Passion.

 

 New Fall Show!

 

 

November 3 & 4, 2018 

 

10 am – 5 pm Each day

 

 

 

Outdoors at Mizner Park Amphitheater

590 Plaza Real         Boca Raton, FL 33432 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For more than three decades, Murphy has been employing a keen sense of color and unique feel for design and form to create dynamic, multi-dimensional geometric abstract paintings that have earned him recognition on an international scale. Murf equates his compositions with cartography. But he’s not interested in mapping out shorelines, islands, continents or seas. He is busy charting the universe and the unifying threads that run through all of nature.

 

Award of Excellence Goes to Murf Murphy

 

Toward that end, he has developed a language of colors, lines and geometric forms. But there’s an architectural quality to his abstract works. Some of that inheres in his use of thick layers and impasto applied with brushes, palette and even putty knives. But he confers three-dimensionality on many of his works by combining colored acrylic films with glass that he sets about half an inch from the painted surface of his underlying canvas.

 

 

 

 

 

When he was just starting out, Murf had a day job tinting car windows. He quickly discovered that he could piece together scenes on windows, sliding glass doors and storefronts from these colored films in much the same way that Henri Matisse used scissors and colored paper to fashion his renowned posters and other cutouts during the final chapter of his storied career.  “At some point, I began framing them and taking them to art shows and festivals,” Murf recounts. “The process evolved from there.”

 

“Fire and Ice” by Murf Murphy

 

 

Today, he affixes his colored film cutouts to the underside of a plate of clear glass in patterns that augment or contrast with the geometric patterns in the composition beneath the glass. As the beam of a gallery spotlight passes through the glass and film cutouts, it is focused, splintered and refracted to create mesmerizing highlights and shadows on the textured surface of the canvas. Natural, organic light will produce the same effect, although in a more diffuse, subtle manner.

 

 

 

 

 

The resulting three-dimensional, tactile quality is a new wrinkle in the 100-year history of the abstract art movement. But there’s more to Murphy’s abstractionism than texture and dimensionality. He also evokes a preoccupation with the building blocks of the natural world and cosmology: light, color and geometrical shapes, particularly rectangles and squares. “Silver Square”, “Yellow Light”, “Green Light”, “Across the Sky”, “New Horizons”, “Golden Moon”  and “Color Source” are the names of just a few of his contemporary constructs. These cues aside, Murf leaves it to his viewers to intuit whether the interplay of light, color, shape and shadow reflect cosmic truths or some cogent commentary on the human condition in modern society denoted, as it is, by the repudiation of fact and science, environmental damage, and impending climatological cataclysm.

 

“Color Dance” by Murf Murphy

 

 

 

 

Over the years, Murf has converted some of his more popular compositions into lithographs. Several have been popularized as art show posters and album and magazine covers – including Hot Works award-winning 16th Orchard Lake Fine Art Show held in West Bloomfield, Michigan this past July. A number can be found in the collections of famous jazz musicians and other public figures, including Dave Sanborn, Richard Elliot, Kenny Rankin, Dave Koz and President Bill Clinton.

 

 

 

He has also shared the limelight at environmental, educational and social events with the likes of Pamela Anderson, Bob Barker, Ivana Trump, and former Vice President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore.  In 2010, Murf presented his “Earth Island” lithograph to the newly installed Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-Moon. That work was also featured on the PBS “Jim Brickman Beautiful World” special.

While the fall show is new this season, the winter Boca Raton Fine Art Show has been voted among the top 100 art shows in America three years running. Institute for Arts & Education is the associated 501( c)(3) non-profit organization that is dedicated to fostering art education among youth, cultural diversity, visual arts and community enrichment.

One of the many strengths of this show is its intimate, boutique nature which allows art lovers and collectors to engage the artists about their inspiration, process and what makes them unique within the highly-competitive realm of fine arts and fine crafts. But Executive Director Patty Narozny employs a number of other time-honored techniques to make Hot Works’ shows a positive experience both for participating artists and patrons. She enlists a team of art professionals to judge the work of the hundreds of applicants who wish to participate in Hot Works’ shows. Narozny is choosey, and her interest goes well beyond digital images and paper applications. She visits many of her artists in their homes and studios to make sure that their work makes a contribution to the quality of her shows and a statement in the collections of the people who patronize them.

 

 

Wearable Art by Artist, Perry

 

 

 

Narozny also understands that most of the folks who come to her shows are far from experienced collectors. In fact, many are newbies – or have yet to take the plunge and buy their first artwork. They are still in the process of defining their tastes and have yet to figure out what they like and why it speaks to them. This explains why she builds variety into every Hot Works show. She and her team strive to ensure that the work presented covers a wide range of price points. There is art for every budget – and something for everyone.  Purchasers can buy with confidence. Because Narozny does her homework so meticulously, they know they are not only getting an original work of art from a credentialed artist, they are getting value as well.

 

Decorative Artwork by Reza Pishgahi

 

 

 

 

While the business side of the equation is serious work, attending a Hot Works show is a relaxing, casual experience. It’s like taking a leisurely stroll through a park filled with artwork. There’s no pressure to do anything more than look and envision what that great painting, photograph or sculpture might look like in your home or office. And if you need a little help in the latter category, all of the exhibiting artists are only too happy to bring one or more artworks to your house after hours so that you can see exactly what it looks like on your bookcase, floor or wall.

MEET  FEATURED  ARTIST  EDWARD  LOEDDING:

“Ceremony” by Edward Loedding. Original pigment print on canvas.
Edward Loedding tells The Rickie Report, “I call my technique Visual Choreography because it brings many elements together to create a dance for your eyes. The process blends photo montage, digital painting, and a unique printing process that utilizes 12 colors of 100% pigment ink. I have been creating art this way for approximately 15 years, after more than 20 years as an oil painter”.
“Courante” by Edward Loedding. Original pigment print on canvas.
He says, “My transition from painting in oils to painting digitally was a search for a more fluid way to create artwork: a way to change lines and shapes and colors throughout the process as the piece evolved. Along the way, I discovered that this medium offered so much more. It was a way to execute my vision in real time as it unfolded; it was creating at the speed of thought”.

Edward and Dorothy Loedding with Patty Narozny

 Edward tells us,”My primary residence is in Brandon, Vermont where I reside with my wife of 21 years, Dorothy. My studio is every artist’s dream: a 150 year old two story post and beam barn that sits 40 feet behind our renovated victorian home in the heart of a quintisentally quaint village. Brandon is also home to our new gallery – still under construction – that will showcase all of my most recent work. We also have a home on the gulf coast of Florida, where we spend our winters.  I am proud to belong to art collections all over the world, and Hotwork’s first-class events help me to reach that audience”.  For more information:  http://www.edwardloedding.com

Announcing Budding Artist Award Winners

As part of our commitment to bring art education into the community, a Budding Artist Competition is integrated into the show within a 10’x20’ area. Sponsored by Institute for the Arts & Education, students in grades 6-12 or ages 9-19 were encouraged to enter his/her original and personally handmade art that was publicly displayed in the art show the entire weekend.

There was $250 in Budding Artist Awards as students are exposed to the rules and entrepreneurship opportunity of doing something they love for a living – creating their art. The program brings families to the art show and exposes them to great art. Students are encouraged to speak with the professional artists in the show and ask them what inspires him/her.

City of Boca Raton Council Members Andrea Levine O’Rourke and Robert Weinroth were part of the Budding Artists Awards Presentation held on Sunday, January 28 at 3pm. Special recognition was given to local art teachers including Hope Campbell and Shelley Weiss of North Broward Preparatory School, Jennifer Schultz of Grandview Preparatory School, and Heather Schumulian of Hebrew Academy School in Margate who entered their students into this art-education program.

Participating artist in the show, Mixed Media Artist Zaki of Antwerp, Belgium was the Budding Artist Judge. Similar to the judging of the professional artist awards, the budding artists were judged based on originality, technique, and execution. Zaki provided an explanation as to why each student won his/her prize which provided an educational learning experience about art.
