After 30 years focusing on and perfecting his Op Art, short for optical illusion art and geometric art techniques, Stanford Slutsky moved into this new territory of Pop Art as he recalled driving a Good Humor Ice cream Truck in the summer of 1957. Combining the depth of his artistic knowledge with his life long journey with food and eating food, he creates giant size realistic sculptures that are one- of- a- kind larger than life food items with the emphasis on sweet things.

 

Bigger than life-size food sculptures by Stanford Slutsky

 

The American Artist and Sculptor was born in 1941  in Pittsburgh, PA.  Now residing in Boynton beach, FL, he tells The Rickie Report, “When I was a child, there was something about the illusions magicians created that captured my imagination. I want that same vivid sense of illusions to be central in all of my artwork. Today, all of my new works of food are creations of colorful, playful and appetizing-yet calorie free”.

 

“Four Spheres” by Stanford Slutsky

 

 

At a young age, Slutsky unearthed clay to made sculptures. In High school he won many awards in jewelry design and creation.  He moved to Florida 34 years ago where he became a full time working and professional artist. These past years he has had numerous SOLO exhibits including the  Young at Art Museum in Davie, Fl, Coral Springs Museum of Art, The Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art, The Fort Lauderdale Art Institute,  and Nathan D. Rosen Museum.

 

 

“Radiance” by Stanford Slutsky

 

“Math, admits Slutsky, wasn’t exactly my best subject in high school”.  But since embracing his fascination, a wide variety of geometric-inspired artwork appears to pop off the canvas. “I am a geometric abstract, optical illusion artist,” he explains. “My work creates the illusion of movement and three-dimensionality. Some shapes of color may seem to advance and then recede and others appear to pulsate in waves.”

 

“Round Candy Box” by Stanford Slutsky

 

 

When you bring the art work of Stanford Slutsky to your home or office, you automatically invite joy and whimsy to your walls and space! His artwork is precise yet spontaneous. His perceptions of the world will bring a smile to your heart and engage all of your visitors. Mr. Slutsky’s pieces are original one of a kind optical illusion acrylic on canvas and his food sculptures are larger than life with the emphasis on sweet things. Slutsky says, ”  I am chasing the sweet things in life.”

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.”

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.”

“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.
