“Adventures in Interior Design” by Phillip Estlund

 

 

Phillip Estlund makes sculptures and assemblages using detritus from his immediate surroundings. These works are reflective of the present day, tenuous natural environmental and financial climate. Estlund’s work is made from ordinary materials collected from demolition sites – all in advanced stages of decrepitude, further hastened by the volatile South Florida climate. Ever yielding to the inevitability and finality of decay, through these sculptures the artist embraces attrition and the resulting degeneration as a force of both inevitable annihilation and potential growth. He has also created heavily tactile landscape paintings, as well as transforming mid century pieces of furniture through addition of botanical and field guide images, and real but inverted cypress knees. Inspired by the sequential devastating hurricanes that preceded the housing crash nearly a decade ago, and through the use of a menagerie of man-made, natural, and synthetic-chemical materials, Estlund is addressing the visual/physical stew that is our contemporary landscape and examining the complexities of living in such a place.

 

 

“Home Invasion” by Phillip Estlund

 

 

Phillip Estlund was born in Athens, Greece and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. He received his BFA from the Maryland Institute, College of Art and studied in the Netherlands at the Academie voor Beeldende Vorming, Tilburg. He received a South Florida Cultural Consortium Grant in 2011, and has been included in exhibitions at Cheim and Reid, Gagosian, Eleven Rivington, Work/Space at ACME, Los Angeles, MOCA North Miami, Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, Schmitt Gallery at FAU, The Norton Museum (The Triumph of Love / The Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection), and the Bunker Artspace Inaugural Exhibition of the Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection, (where he is also a co-curator). Estlund is represented by Gavlak Gallery in Palm Beach, and will have work in “Sea and Sky” there this fall. One of his installations can currently be seen at the Culture Lab (formerly Macy’s) in West Palm Beach.

 

 

Installation Art at North Miami MOCA by Phillip Estlund

ART SALONS at the ARMORY ART CENTER in West Palm Beach are a gathering place for artists from throughout in the region. Each month from October to May, Art Salons offer presentations by influential professional artists whose artwork is being shown in museums and galleries in South Florida. Presenters show their work, talk about their influences, and explore the work of artists showing in museums and galleries, followed by stimulating discussions between all who attend. Our discussions cover the gamut of contemporary art themes, including conceptual, cultural, socio/political, environmental, race and gender focused and aesthetic practices, the materials and techniques used to convey these ideas, and where we fit into the world of contemporary conceptual art. Art Salons also offer the opportunity to explore the practical side of being an artist, enhance professional development, share useful resources, and network with other artists.

ELLE SCHORR, a well known artist / photographer who spends much of her time at museums and art exhibits locally and internationally, has been facilitating the salons, hosted by the Armory Art Center, since 2012.

 

 

Exhibitions, lectures, and special events are open to the public.

Pen & Ink Drawing by Murray Kronick

Pen & ink artist Murray Kronick says “When most people travel and see something interesting or captivating, the first thing they whip out is their camera or i-Phone. For me, it is my sketch book”. Murray’s wife, Sylvia says “you may not want to travel with Murray. When he says ‘give me a few minutes’, beware, it is best to expect you will be there for a few hours.”

For the past two decades, Murray & Sylvia have devoted two to three months a year traveling on volunteer missions to third world countries. Many of their trips are sponsored by The American Jewish World Service. ajws.org. These assignments have afforded them an opportunity to give back, while immersing themselves in Africa, India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Burma (now Myanmar), Thailand, Cambodia and Indonesia…yet, in addition to returning stateside with a feeling of accomplishment, memories and photos, they return with beautiful pen and ink art.

 

 

 

Although “Tzedakah” ( helping others) is their driving force, they ensure that they build in free days, or pre or post-service travel time to see sights and experience the people, unique to every country on the globe. During these days, Murray captures spectacular scenery with his pen, while Sylvia relishes the moments, exploring and taking in what the surroundings offer.

On Nov. 16, 2015 at 2 p.m., Murray will present a talk and slide show, amplifying the satisfaction he and Sylvia have achieved in ‘giving back’. He will provide an overview of the work they do on their missions, and how he incorporates and extends these experiences by capturing art subjects, creating a medium that would not exist if there wasn’t a love for tzedakah, travel and art.
