Ancizar Marin – Sculpture

HAEmarin1

Sculpture by Ancizar Marin

 

 

Born in Colombia, Marin first received formal art training in the 1980s at the ‘Bellas Artes’ Institute in Manizales, Colombia. He continued to study sculpture at the Luccio Petraglia School of Art in Bogota, where he honed his sculptural proficiency in bronze and steel. Later, South American travel exposed him to the rich melting pot of cultural influences that further informed his approaches to color and texture. Marin works now in South Florida, where his work has been featured in design magazines, gallery shows, and prestigious art fairs, and private commissions continue to proliferate.

 

 

 

HAEmarin2

Sculpture by Ancizar Marin

 

 

 

His figurative forms are relatively inexpensive, allowing collectors to purchase multiple sculptures at a time. For Marin, this achieves his desire to encourage the figures to engage with one another in dynamic groupings that can be arranged and rearranged at will. The shadows thrown off by the glossy little men and women, who alternately squat, leap, lunge, stretch, and perform arabesques, further energize the walls against which they are installed, so that the spatial sum of the parts far exceeds the individual sculptural components.

Hand Made Wire Jewelry by Melissa Woods

 

 

 

 

Melissa shares, “Creating jewelry has been a means of self expression for me since I started at the age of thirteen. At sixteen I received a wire working book for my birthday and I have been wire working ever since. I continued my jewelry making education by receiving a B.F.A. from Bowling Green State University and studying advanced jewelry design abroad in Florence, Italy. I have been taught all the traditional jewelry making techniques and made many pieces over the years, but I have always loved working with wire”.

 

 

 

 

HAEwoods2

Hand Made Wire Jewelry by Melissa Woods

 

 

 

 

“I have found anodized aluminum to be a new exciting medium to create jewelry out of. Anodizing is a surface-treatment of aluminum that colors the metal. I acquire my aluminum wire from a wide variety of companies in order to get the rainbow of colors I have available, these companies anodize the wire by placing the aluminum in electrically charged chemical baths. The color is the metal and the shiny finish of anodized aluminum is aluminum oxide, which will not tarnish or change. Aluminum is light weight, hypo allergenic and brighter than sterling silver.  At every show I make items specialized to customer’s size or color preference, which puts my skills out on display and really conveys to the patrons that everything in my booth is original and handmade by me”.

Artistically Speaking

One gallery will be dedicated to Artistically Speaking, a major exhibition project being produced by Florida Atlantic University’s Jupiter Library Gallery. This is a travelling show, with the first stop at the Cornell Museum, with larger versions of the show being exhibited in two locations in Miami during 2016-2017, respectively.

 

 

 

The project was initiated by visual artists Diane Arrieta (the art and science outreach coordinator for FAU libraries) and Jacqueline Kern (Adjunct art faculty at Palm Beach State College) who wish to explore the following:

1) How psychological and emotional phenomena can influence the outcome of production, self-promotion, and self-reflection of women artists.
2) How women artists perceive their connections to the world.
3) How the study of women artists as a profession can influence or compare to the study of other professions.
4) The understanding of women artists and their identities: how their creative processes in the contemporary art and technological world enhance their value as artists and their place in the world.

Select women artists from all levels and disciplines were hand-picked to have a conversation on film about their own personal journey as a creative and what struggles and triumphs they have encountered along their paths of living as a creative.  Each artist will also be exhibiting their artwork. Participating artists include T J Ahearn, Francie Bishop Good, Carol Jazzar, Alette Simmons-Jimenez, Leah Brown, Tina La Porta, Raheleh Filsoofi, Giannina Coppiano Dwin, Diane Arrieta (aka Birds are Nice), Jacqueline Kern, Dana Donaty, Adrienne Rose Gionta and Sibel Kocabasi.

About the eXXpectations artists:

 

 

TRACEY ADAMS As a musician and a conductor who received her Master’s degree from the New England Conservatory of Music, the work that Tracey Adams creates is inspired by her experiences with music.  Adams was drawn to both art and music since the age of three, and these creative inclinations were supported by her parents, themselves art lovers.  While studying for her Master’s, Adams was also studying painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.  Adams quotes jazz musician Charlie Haden on her online statement page: “The artist’s job is to bring beauty into a conflicted world.”  Her work reflects this quote accurately; her works expresses a form of serenity, and strives to show an internal calm, an environment that she wants to externalize.  Adams has had solo shows at the Monterey Museum of Art, the Fresno Museum of Art, and the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History.  She exhibited at the Andy Warhol Museum in Medzilaborce, Slovak Republic in 2003.  She was also recently awarded a 2015 Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant.  Her work is included in collections at the Bakersfield Art Museum, the Crocker Museum, the Hunterdon Art Museum, the Monterey Museum of Art, the Fresno Art Museum, the Tucson Art Museum, and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art.

 

 

 

 

HELEN BAYLY has said that her creative process starts with a concept or a question, and then the visual aspects stem from various thoughts and ideas based on her environment, depending on anything ranging from her conversations to how much sleep she is getting. She wants her work to have meaning not only for herself, but also for her audience.  Bayly studied painting at the San Francisco Art Institute from 2001-2004.  She has been included in several exhibitions, including Flower Pepper Gallery, La Luz de Jesus Gallery, art works downtown, and Project One.

MADELINE DENARO describes herself as a process artist: Her art is secondary to the process, as that is what the work evolves from. Her creations are sensory, requiring the audience to feel and not necessarily to interpret. Denaro is from the Bronx and currently resides and works in Fort Lauderdale. She studied at the South Florida Art Institute, and she travelled extensively through Europe.  She was particularly inspired by art in Germany, one of her main influences being German artist Joseph Beuys.  She has exhibited her work in New York, Atlanta, Germany, and throughout South Florida.

 

 

 

HOLLY FARRELL is a self-taught artist who has been painting professionally since 1995.  Her work is influenced by her experiences of growing up in northern Ontario and of small town life.  Farrell says that her work is driven by nostalgia, showing the connections we all have to the subjects in her paintings. Farrell has exhibited in Canada, the USA, and Japan.  Her paintings are in collections both private and corporate throughout North America, Europe, and Japan.

 

 

 

 

HAYLEY GABVERLAGE’S three word description of her art reads: “Contemporary.  Humorous.  Slightly Southern.” Originally from Alabama, Gabverlage attended SCAD in Savannah, and she currently resides and works in New Orleans. Her work is inspired by the people, neighborhoods, and experiences in New Orleans.  Gabverlage contemporizes the outdated. She has a distinct color palette, and gravitates towards turquoise blues, mint greens, and muted tones. Her work is inspiring, and possesses a whimsical spirit.

 

 

 

 

 

 
ISABELLE GARBANI’S current work, “Love and Death: Archiving the 21st Century”, takes the digital communications from emails and social media sites and seeks to chronicle them in a tangible form.  The lace technique she uses to thread together Facebook posts, Tweets, and texts is reminiscent of a computer using complex operations to lace together the same information. The lace she uses is recycled plastic shopping bags, as she feels that plastic is the material that best represents our culture.  Originally from France, Garbani came to the USA as a young woman ready to realize her artistic passion.  She received her MFA in sculpture from the New York Academy of Art in 2004. She currently resides in Brooklyn.

JAMIE KIRKLAND is a prominent abstract landscape artist, who lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her work creates a calm, meditative, reflective mood. The color palettes she uses have been known to be described as “quiet” and “harmonious.” Though she now resides in Santa Fe, she once lived in Crestone, Colorado, which is one of the quietest places on earth. Kirkland strives to channel the memory of this calm and quiet place into her work.  Kirkland’s paintings have been shown by several prominent arts organizations, including the Utah Arts Council; the Museum of Fine Arts in Santa Fe; and the Pensacola Museum of Fine Art. In 2007, she was invited to become a member of the National Association of Women Artists, which was founded in 1889 and is the oldest professional women’s fine art organization in the US. Her work hangs in many prominent public, corporate, and private collections throughout the United States.

 

 

 

 

MIRA LEHR uses nontraditional media for her nature-based imagery, such as resin, gunpowder, fire, Japanese paper, and more. As a young female artist in the ‘50s and ‘60s, Lehr was at the forefront of abstract expressionism and also helped mobilize the female voice in cities such as Miami, where she co-founded the first women’s co-op in the southeast. A New York native, Lehr serves as mentor and collaborator to young artists. She teaches master classes with the National Young Arts Foundation, and she has been the artist in residence at the Bascom Summer Programs.  Lehr’s solo and group exhibitions number over 300. These include the Bass Museum of Art, the Miami Art Museum, the New Museum, the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, and American Embassies around the world.

 

 

 

 

ASHLEY LONGSHORE has said that her art is representative of the world as she sees it, and she has been recognized as “a modern Andy Warhol.”  Her art focuses on American consumerism, pop culture, and Hollywood glamour. Longshore’s work often takes a satirical approach, using fashion icons as the means to make a statement. Her client base includes Blake Lively, Salma Hayek, and Penelope Cruz. Her gallery, Longshore Studio Gallery, is located on Magazine Street in New Orleans. She has exhibited in the US and Europe, and has been featured in such magazines as Elle, Forbes, Vogue, Marie Claire Belgium, Elle Décor Belgium, Vie Magazine, SPUR, Hollywood Reporter, and Matchbook Magazine.

“Why is Life a Free Fall,” mixed media on panel by Jane Maxwell

 

 

CHERYL MAEDER uses her camera “as an instrument to convey the world through painterly eyes.”  Through her photography, she shows that what is clear and in focus is actually only one’s perception.  Her study of photography began while she was living in Switzerland, and upon her return to the US, she opened a studio in San Francisco.  Maeder has worked as a national fine art and advertising photographer, and she has shot campaigns for a number of clients, including Sony, AT&T, Visa, Calvin Klein, and Marriott Hotels.  Her work inspired the Dove Campaign on Real Women, Real Beauty, which has been shown worldwide.

 

 

 

 

 
KAREN MAINENTI says that her art “wrestles with the definition of femininity, unrealized dreams, and impossible ideals – both childish and adult.” Her Color Me Beautiful series is no exception: From cheeky oil paintings that express sentiments such as “Gentlemen Prefer Pink” to graphite drawings of certain beauty products showing the sad yet humorous absurdities involved in marketing, Mainenti’s art has a real sense of humor that struggles with feminine identity.  Mainenti has been included in numerous group exhibitions throughout New York City, as well as solo exhibitions.  For 10 years she was the Creative Director at Martha Stewart Living, and she currently is the Creative Director for Alene Candles in New York City.

 

 

 

 

 

JANE MANUS is an internationally renowned sculptor, who characterizes herself as a Constructivist-turned-Minimalist. Creating abstract sculptures, Manus decided early in her career to work exclusively with aluminum.  In her works, she explores symmetry, balance, and form through carefully positioned geometric shapes, often squares and rectangles, and linear forms. At once industrial and organic, the hard angles and highly finished surfaces of her pieces are softened by references to the human body and nature.  Manus has been exhibited in both group and solo shows around the US, and her work resides in numerous public collections across the US as well.

 

 

 

 

JANE MAXWELL is a mixed media artist from Boston, Massachusetts. Her work focuses largely on women, body image, and the feminine ideal.  Maxwell has a passion for vintage materials, modern fashion, and design, as well as a fascination of pop culture and female icons. She creates deeply layered collages, with female figures surrounded by choice images and words that harbor themes of perfection and feminine beauty. Maxwell’s work has been exhibited in New York City, San Francisco, Napa Valley, Newport, RI, London, and at Miami Art Fairs.  Her work has been collected by buyers worldwide. She has been a guest lecturer on the topic of body image and art at Wellesley College, Stonehill College, and the New England Art Institute.

MARILYN MINTER is a painter and photographer whose hyperrealistic paintings and richly-colored photographs feature uncomfortably close-up views of the human body, covered in beads, glitter, or pearls.  Her work examines the concepts of “glamour” and “beauty”, with many of these bordering a pornographic edge. Her work is sexy, intriguing, and erotic, and seemingly asks the audience to challenge societal definitions of beauty and femininity.  Minter’s work has been exhibited all around the world, including at the Whitney Biennial, Art Basel, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.  Her video “Green Pink Caviar” was exhibited in the lobby of MoMa for a year, and excerpts were used by Madonna in her opening performance on the Sticky & Sweet tour. Minter currently lives and works in New York City.

 

 

 

 

EKATERINA PANIKANOVA transforms vintage books into provoking works of art, by painting meticulously beautiful watercolors directly onto the pages of these antiquated volumes. Viewers become transfixed by these works of art.  Ekaterina studied at the School of the Art of the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg. Her works has been exhibited in the Russian Union of Artists, at the Academy of Fine Arts, in St. Petersburg and Moscow.  She was born in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1975. She currently lives and works in Rome.

 

 

 

 

MARGARET ROLEKE boldly states “I create politically aware work.” This statement speaks to her creations; with the use of children’s toys, Roleke creates pieces that include themes of consumerism, gender, and war. Using toy soldiers, Barbie Dolls, and other various children’s toys, Roleke’s work comments on the disorder of the world, and questions what belongs to girls, as opposed to what belongs to boys.  Roleke’s work has been exhibited throughout the US in group and solo exhibits. Her travels in Europe, Asia, Central America, and South America have influenced her practice, as well as her three year stay in London.

”Letting Go,” flashe & acrylic with cold wax, Brenda Zappitell

PERI SCHWARTZ creates self-portraits, still life images and studio interiors that focus on composition, color, light and space. Schwartz prefers to work directly from life, and the objects in her studio, as well as the studio itself, become the subjects of her works. She uses painting, drawing, and monotype prints, and has said that each time she returns to one, she feels as though she is rediscovering it.  Schwartz has said that she strives for balance between representation and abstraction in her work.  In order to do so, she uses a grid technique, which she learned in the basics of composition. Her grids extend beyond the canvas or paper and onto the walls, tables, and books in her studio, thus turning the space into a real-life grid with intervals on the walls and in the painting. Schwartz studied at Boston University’s School of Fine Arts and received her MFA at Queen’s College.  Her work is collected in both the US and Europe.  She currently lives and works in New Rochelle, NY.

 

 

 

 

 

BRENDA ZAPPITELL is an abstract artist who states that she “creates abstract expressionist works not only born out of intuition but also serendipitously influenced by nature and life experiences.” A mostly self-taught artist, Zappitell didn’t realize that she wanted to create until she was 25. After spending time in an art gallery in Mexico in 1990, she realized her passion and was inspired to create. Zappitell’s work is inspired by life and by nature. The choices she makes artistically come to her naturally, and it isn’t until a work is finished that she reflects upon where these choices came from.  In this way, much of her art is in the discovery of the work, with the creation of her intention coming during the process, not before. Thus, her work is intuitive.  Zappitell’s work is in both private and public collections, including the Boca Museum of Art and St. Regis Hotel, NYC. She currently lives and has her studio in Delray Beach, Florida.

 

 

 

This project is sponsored in part by the City of Delray Beach, the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency, the Palm Beach County Tourist Development Council and the State of Florida through the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
