Armory Art Salon Features Multi Media Artist Khaulah Naima Nuruddin On Tuesday, March 3

The Armory Art Center brings Khaulah Naima Nuruddin to the next Art Salon, led by Elle Schorr on Tuesday, March 3.  The public is invited to hear Khaulah speak about her meticulous, laborious drawings, paintings and installations, which are representative of the thousands of hours beyond the so-called “norm” of work that a Black woman must manage to gain freedom and success. These dynamic works are quiet and intense, offering the viewer privileged access to an experience that may not be their own.  The Rickie Report gives you the details and some sneak peeks.  Kudos, Elle, for bringing us internationally, nationally, and locally based artists who help us better understand the creative process!

“No Trespassing” by Khaulah Naima Nuruddin

 

 

 

Khaulah Naima Nuruddin is a multimedia artist from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who lives and works in South Florida. Nuruddin’s work explores the intersections of personal expression and social commentary by initiating public discussion of race, sexuality and the social transfer inherent to her work as a Black visual artist. Her current SOLO exhibition, at under the bridge / Bridge Red in North Miami, is titled “Not For Sale: Not Today” through March 1. This new work, curated by Tayina Deravile, addresses the complexities of being a Black woman navigating social systems that are deliberately designed to oppress. It is a celebratory acknowledgment of the work Black Women do to survive and thrive beyond barriers. She is also one of three artists who’s work is on view in “Chandelle” at Art’s Up, in FATVillage, NW 1st St., Fort Lauderdale. It can be seen during last Saturday Art Walks through June 27.

At the core of this recent work is a commitment to examine emotional content in history. He sees the current re-examination of history as a yearning for acknowledgment of others emotional lives. By manipulating 3D printers, he is able to create luminous ethereal three dimensional forms.  Stop and look at the art…hear the creators…share the wonder!  The Rickie Report gives you the details and some sneak peeks.

Artist, Ezra Hubbard

 

 

Ezra Hubbard is an interdisciplinary artist who works in video, installation, paint, and ink. At the core of this recent work is a commitment to examine emotional content in history. Hubbard sees the current re-examination of history as a yearning for acknowledgment of others emotional lives. By manipulating 3D printers, he is able to create luminous ethereal three dimensional forms. In many traditional cultures, circular structures are places set aside for transformation and guidance. In his current installation, on display at the 3rd Biennial “Artists of Art Salon” Exhibition, Hubbard offers the same. Sound is infused into the space to bring a sense of immediacy and to create a place for reflection and free association.

 

 

Interior View by Ezra Hubbard

 

 

 

Tim B. Wride, Curator of Photography at The Norton Museum, recently wrote, “Ezra has a keen sensitivity and hard-won ability to interweave the weight of sculpture, the luminosity of painting, and emotion of light. Rarely has gravity appeared so ethereal.”  Fascinated by the transmission and reflection of light, Hubbard “seeks to create memories and events rather than just an interesting thing to observe.” Hubbard, who has a lifelong connection with the photography of Walker Evans, drew inspiration from Evans’ notion that “It’s easy to photograph light reflecting from a surface, the truly hard part is capturing the light in the air.” The celebrated artist of the Light and Space movement, Larry Bell described Hubbard’s recent work, “as portraits of another species of being. Who are these creatures you have created, Dr. Frankenstein?” Hubbard says his work is about movement towards transcendence and states that the work “is sparked by deep reflections on people, dreams, time, and the subconscious.”

 

 

 

Ezra Hubbard’s 3D Installation

 

 

Ezra Hubbard has worked in the visual arts for more than 25 years. He had a previous career in the film industry as an editor where he worked for major film studios and numerous independents. He earned an MFA in Art Practice from the School of Visual Arts in June 2019. He had a solo exhibition this summer, also titled “Between Reflection and the Shadow” at Van Der Plas Gallery in New York City. Part of the show featured a generative soundscape created by the Toronto-based sound artist, Ben Oginz. Ezra’s studio is at Studio 1608, in West Palm Beach.

Martin Casuso with “Steer on Stilts”

 

 

Martin Casuso is known for his sculptures and installations made of brightly colored color field knit covered boards, found and made textiles and assorted found objects, with occasional stop-motion animation videos. He says: ” The basis for all my work originates from the domestic sphere; the themes often subconscious preoccupations with personal memory. Found household objects and discards, often thrift store or recycled finds, as well as images from film or television, craft materials and techniques come together to acknowledge an affinity with all things hidden or overlooked”.

 

 

 

“The Great Unknown” by Martin Casuso

 

 

Martin continues  “The manipulation or transformations in my pieces follow Jasper Johns’ dictum: ‘Take an object. Do something to it. Do something else to it. Do something else to it.’ You will find varied media (video, site specific installation, sculptural objects of ceramic or yarn”.

 

 

“Biscayne Bay Fort” by Martin Casuso

 

 

Born, raised and schooled in Miami, Martin Casuso is the product of a Cuban Freudian analyst father and Dutch born artist mother. A continuous late bloomer, he received his BFA in Mixed Media from Florida International University at 40 and an MFA in Sculpture from The University of Miami at 50.

A Special Set of Five Talks about African American Artists

Thursdays: January 14, 21, 28, February 4, 11

1:00-3:00 PM

$40 Member; $60 Guest; $15/Class

 

 

Join the Mandel JCC in this very special lecture series taught by Dr. Joan Lipton. As an experienced art historian- lecturer and a dedicated scholar, she has always had the desire to promote the study of art and culture within the audiences that she teaches. She earned a Master’s degree in art history from Hunter College, with a specialization in the Renaissance, and a PhD in art history, from The Graduate Center of the City of New York, with a specialization in 19th and 20th century art. After many years of teaching art history at colleges, and adult education centers in New Jersey and New York, Dr. Lipton is pleased to share her knowledge and enthusiasm now with Florida audiences.

Dr. Joan Lipton

 

 

In five fully illustrated lectures, art historian Joan Lipton will explore paintings and sculpture that survey the black experience in America from the days of slavery to freedom after the Civil War and during the era of reconstruction. She will also present highlights of the art of the 20th and 21st centuries to reveal the talent of many male and female artists whose importance and fame are now assured.

 

 

1. Picturing African Americans and Their Life in the19th Century by Black and White Artists: Prior to the Civil War the few known African American artists exemplified an art relatively similar to that of their white contemporaries. Some, however, were willing to confront and describe the social conditions of their people. One even received international acclaim, but he reacted to the pressures of racism by leaving America and relocating in Paris. Among the white painters who presented African Americans in a relatively objective, dignified way were renowned Winslow Homer, Eastman Johnson, William Sidney Mount and Thomas Eakins. However, this was not true of other white artists.

 

 

 

 

2. and 3.The Harlem Renaissance and Prominent African American: Artists
After World War I many African Americans joined the mass migration to the north where the major example of expanded freedom and creativity was the Harlem Renaissance. In that atmosphere many artists came forth to create modern masterpieces.

 

4. Let’s Not Forget African American Women Artists: Women painters and sculptors who persevered “against all odds” did earn their deserved places in museums, galleries and publications beginning in the 19th century.

 

 

5. Contemporary African American and African Artists: A Sampling: Current African American men and women artists are producing notable and varied artistic styles and content as we will see. Before exploring current African art there will be a discussion of the superior art produced in Africa as early as 1500 through the 1900s.

“A Wind Blows Through” by Miles Laventhall

 

 

Laventhall shares, “To me, stone and wood have intrinsic beauty and inference. Branches from trees personify human gesture and struggles of matter and spirit.  The passive strength of stone symbolizes timelessness and the watchful eyes and ears of history…paper and steel symbolize the fragile nature of existence within a delicate ecosystem.  They wear the stains of time in the cycle of life and return to the earth to give birth again.”

Laventhall shared with The Rickie Report that his current project is entitled “Gathering at the Waterhole”, with the statement, “Crucial issues facing humanity, and powers of nature that alter history and time to come…are the marrow of Gathering at the Waterhole…their very existence is predicated on water and their crowded numbers around the waterhole suggest the two billion people already without sustainable water to live.”
