Erik Kučera is an award winning artist from Slovakia. He is the creator of the world renowned technique, “Surreallations”, which creates the illusion of depth and movement in each piece. His work is unique and readily recognizable as a “Kučera”. Erik has participated in over 200 exhibitions worldwide and his art can now be found in more than 16 different countries.

 

 

 

"Strength" by Erik

“Strength” by Erik Kučera

 

Modernity Art is the main gallery for the art works of Erik Kučera. An award winning artist from Slovakia, he is the creator of the world renowned technique, “Surreallations”. The Surreallations technique, which creates the illusion of depth and movement to each piece, is what makes each work so unique and readily recognizable as a “Kučera”. Erik has participated in over 200 exhibitions worldwide and his art can now be found in more than 16 different countries.

 

Erik Kučera’s artistry has been seen in Art in Public Places at the Palm Beach International Airport Juried Exhibition.  Erik tells The Rickie Report, “I am an artist because to be anything else would be untrue. Through my art I hope to bring awareness to situations in the world which are not always so easy to talk about or even read about. I enjoy also taking themes from the past and working them in a new and exciting way, a way in which people have never seen before.”

 

 

KuceraKaleidokrank

Erik goes on to explain, “When I create my art, I always see the images in all dimensions in my mind. Every piece takes hours of thoughtfulness and consideration so that the art can tell a story and give the viewer a journey through a world created in a single piece. Some concepts for work can be inspired from the weather or song, and then the ideas flow easily. Other works are themes which can require days of research, and investigation of symbols, history and literature.”

Black and White Artistry by Erik Kučera

 

 

 

“When I first started seriously as an artist, I didn’t trust myself beyond a white sheet of paper and a black marker. I created my first works on the basis of my black and white checkered pattern. Over the years I discovered my love of colors and through much trial and error eventually developed the technique of “surreallations”. It is my own way of creating the illusion of depth and movement in a piece. All my works today are carefully developed using a variety of tools and different mediums in order to perfect this technique. However, in nearly every work I create you can still find the original black and white checkered pattern which was the seed from which my art has grown,” he shares with our readers.

Syro Hittite

Syro Hittite Pottery Idol

According to the Jewish Virtual Library, Abraham (ca. 1813 – 1638 BCE) was born under the name Abram in the city of Ur in Babylonia. He was the son of Terach, an idol merchant. From his early childhood, Abram questioned the faith of his father and sought the truth. He came to believe that the entire universe was the work of a single Creator, and he began to teach this belief to others.

 

Abram tried to convince his father Terach of the folly of idol worship. One day when Abram was left alone to mind the store, he took a hammer and smashed all of the idols except the largest one. He placed the hammer in the hand of the largest one. When his father returned and asked what happened, Abram said, “The idols got into a fight and the big one smashed all the other ones.” His father said, “Don’t be ridiculous. These idols have no life or power. They can’t do anything!” Abram replied, “Then why do you worship them?”

 

 

 

When, according to tradition, Abram rejected the idols that Terach, his father, had made, he established the foundation for a belief in a single monotheistic, all powerful, omniscient God.  “They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not; they have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouths.” (Psalm 135).

What was the appearance of the gods and idols that Abram rejected and that the prophets railed against? Please join us at Griffin Gallery Ancient Art to view these spectacular artifacts. The idols in this exhibition are Syro-Hittite deities from the Middle Bronze Age (1950 – 1539 BCE), Persian deities from the Elamite Period (1500 – 1000 BCE) and Roman deities from first through the fourth centuries.

Eva Newermann Presents “The Magic is Inside You”; Shares New ePublication with Illustrations

The public is invited to the Women in the Visual Arts (WITVA) meeting to hear Eva Newermann, international traveler, author and painter.  Born in Norway, Eva, will share her experiences and insights as she traveled the globe.  Eva believes we all have some special qualities, or “magic” inside us – we just have to explore or get that little push, to find it. In addition to her “Speed Painting” techniques presentation, Eva will also share a few chapters of her newest eBook “Fear is in the Air”, which she wrote and illustrated.  The Rickie Report urges you to meet Eva.  Her enthusiasm is catchy! In addition, Eva will be at the Pen Women Extravaganza in March.  All the details are in this article.

 TRR: You’ve traveled the world.  How did you become a writer?

EN:

 

I was born in Stavanger, Norway.  Because of all the stories my Dad told me about the universe, stars and planets, I was always fascinated with flying. When I got older I became a flight attendant!  I also joined an astronomy club in Norway. After years of listening to the professors and astrophysicists I one day told them, “You know what?” It is very difficult to understand all these things going on in the universe. I think I will write a children’s book about our planets. Something everybody will understand.”
Acrylic Painting by Eva N

“Winter Scene” by Eva Newermann

Inspired by my career as a flight attendant for Trans World Airlines (TWA), I created the alter ego Ewa.  I am still traveling the world, meeting interesting and famous individuals, some of whom come to life as characters in FEAR IS IN THE AIR.  Many of the incidents in the book are based on real-life experiences and result in a cliffhanger ending.

 

"Images" by Eva

“Images” by Eva

Two years later ,in 2009, my first book “Universet som et maleri” ( Digital.no) was published.  When I read a book, I like to learn something, escape to another world, have some action and a lot of humor helps, too.  In the 60’s and 70’s I was living in Hollywood, CA, working as a model and a flight attendant.  I met a lot of movie stars and other interesting people through my travels.
Eva, as a model, in the 1960's

Eva, as a modeling Hollywood (1960’s)

My sister, Lillian and I really enjoyed the TV serial “Dexter”. I thought it would  be fun to write a ” mock biography” about a female flight attendant serial killer. I could tell all these crazy stories, that actually happened, when I was flying!  That’s how ” FEAR IS IN THE AIR” was born.
Eva and her Cosmos

Eva and her Cosmos

I completed the first in a trilogy of sci-fi thrillers, “Fear is In The Air” ( Amazon.com)  The main character, Ewa Lowe, is a blithe, spirited, female serial killer – with alien DNA.   FEAR IS IN THE AIR will captivate the reader as Ewa travels the world: Egypt, Norway, England and the USA.  This novel combines humor and action. Ewa falls in love with astrophysicist Adam Skai, who has an intriguing and mysterious (and alien) past.  He will change her life forever.
Painting by Eva Newermann

Painting by Eva Newermann

I have a lot of my own paintings and pictures in the book. Because of that and all the research, it took me three years to finish. I would say that 90% of all the stories in “FEAR IS IN THE AIR” are true. So, if it hadn’t been for all the darn murders- it could have been a real biography !

TRR:  Tell us more about “The Magic Is Inside You” and “Speed Painting”

EN:

I spend all my winters in Delray Beach, FL. The Women in The Visual Arts in Boca Raton has invited me to do a presentation I call : ” The Magic is Inside You !” I will give a lecture on my new e- book and then, I’ll paint ( acrylic) for half an hour. “Speed Painting” is showing different painting techniques. If you go to my website: EvaNewermann.com you can see a short film of me painting.
Among my hobbies are art, astronomy, bridge and dancing, but lately I have concentrated on writing.  I have published, in Norway, a book for young readers about the universe, illustrated with my own illuminative paintings of the cosmos.  This has led to book signings, lectures, and opportunities to educate students about the universe. I’m also currently writing a sequel to FEAR IS IN THE AIR.
Book Cover by Eva

Book Cover by Eva

 

Fear Is In The Air

 

Ewa Lowe, a strikingly beautiful flight attendant, is a sociopath, a serial killer.  She is charming, witty and deadly.  A world traveler who kills the night before leaving the country, she is so organized, so tidy, that she leaves no clue. Oh, she always has a good reason to kill.  At the age of ten, Ewa was raped and her parents murdered.  This triggered her hatred for brown-eyed men.  At 23, she killed her rapist. After that, her victims, in addition to offending her for one reason or another, have brown eyes.

Vicki Siegel Exhibits Acrylic and Mixed Media Paintings at Multiple Venues

With work in multiple venues, including a SOLO show, artist Vicki Siegel has been pouring her creative energy into new work and organizing a SOLO exhibit with a range of work from the last ten years.  Her paintings include images of both collective and personal memories. The Rickie Report is pleased to share the details of her exhibits and hopes you will stop by to view some of her wonderful, dreamlike creations.

 

 

 

VICKI SIEGEL EXHIBITS AT MULTIPLE VENUES 

 

 

 

Vicki Siegel’s paintings are informed by memory, both personal and collective. “Memories are imperfect representations of the past that are altered, fragmented, reconstructed and reinterpreted over time” says Siegel. “In my narrations details are found in layers often revealing something forgotten or missing from actual experiences or by the collective memories we share”.

 

"Gioia"

In her first SOLO show, “Journeys”, artist Vicki Siegel takes the viewer on an artistic journey from the outside world to a world that exists in the imagination. The exhibition takes place at the Weisman Delray Community Center, January 21, 2014- March 2, 2014. The Center is located at 7091 W. Atlantic Ave. in Delray Beach. Hours are Monday – Thurs. 9 am – 5 pm, Friday 8:30 am – 4:30 pm. A reception with a brief artist talk will be held Sunday, February 16th from 2-4 pm. Free and open to the public. Call 561-558-2100.  “Journeys” runs January 21, 2014- March 2, 2014. 

 

 

 

With over twenty five paintings on display, from landscapes to figurative, these colorful works of art reflect the artist’s focus on both the spiritual and natural worlds. Many have a dreamlike calming atmosphere. Expressive use of acrylic paint with overlays of pencil, charcoal, and oil stick drawing, along with image transfers of photographs will delight the viewer.

 

A portion of the sales will benefit The Weisman Delray Community Center. It is part of the Ruth Rales Jewish Family Service. The Center is located at 7091 W. Atlantic Ave. in Delray Beach. Call 561-558-2100 for more information.

The 2014 Featured Artist is Gail Markiewicz, a Master Clay artist who originates from central Connecticut.   Gail tells The Rickie Report, ” My fourth grade teacher asked each of us what we wanted to be when we grew up and without hesitation I decided that I would become an artist. As the years passed my convictions only grew stronger.  It seemed it was not only a vocation, but some inner calling that I could not deviate from”.

After having tried sculptural forms of art, Gail began to create beautiful, nonfunctional vessels and she has continued this art form since 1985.   She explains, “Probably the biggest link from the beginning of my work until now has been my love for textures and pattern.  I have combined textured pieces of clay and juxtaposed them into interesting positions to form a patchwork design.  The shape of the vessels are very striking.  The colors highlight the surfaces creating a feeling of antiquity and futuristic dimension embodied in each vessel”.
