Addonis Parker:  Artist Statement

Art to me is a form of extreme communion with God. Respectfully and with pride, I am a student of creativity and expression.  My life is simply an open book to the inner world of our urban fabrics but the key to the underworld of self-truth, through the eyes of Addonis.  I am a master of expressing the depths of emotion and the plight of a people, shunned, feared and disdained. I am a captain of the community of man through a visual port of my surroundings.

 

 

Addonis

Addonis Parker

 

 

Being self-taught –I will violate the art code to convey any message necessary to meet such an objective to save lives or strengthen a community. I am a witness to the hardship as well as the high levels of success of the men and women who dared to chase this venture alone; even before me, if none should come after.  My work is the eternal flame of voices which society chooses to ignore. I use symbolic rendering and spiritual undertones to convey my message as I have received it. Color, composition and structure are important instruments to strike emotional cords to one’s visual journey with the face of my spirit. With the presence of nature and elements of historical events; I feel that I must be a gatekeeper of my current time and experience.

 

"Addonis"

“Addonis”

 

I am an advocate for the freedom of expression. I find it necessary to include small forms of nature in my work. Nature holds the key to serenity and extreme craftsmanship from a higher source— God.  Another fact, being self-taught eliminates the fear of freestanding risk taking in my opinion. My work, to me is in fact intense, prophetic, thought provoking, spiritual, emotional, and maybe controversial. I have accepted this crown of distinction and all the disciplines it may provide.  I choose not to classify my work nor will I receive a commercial stamp to categorize my ability and thought process.

 

 

 

I am an American artist who just paints. I paint for the love of creation and the respect and honor of my past forerunners who had neither the opportunities nor the civil rights to become what I am today. It is my eternal pleasure to carry a brush and use it limitlessly. I will continue to be me in my work and in my community as well. Art to me is therapeutic but the essential foundation of every community around the world. The absence of the opportunity of art —–is the absence of civilization.

 

 

 

Al Burts:  “Even a Single Line May Convey an Emotion”

 

Al Burts is a skillful artist who uses the thin lines of a ballpoint pen, sometimes mixed with oil paint, to create bold works of art that display African American values in a dignified and powerful style. He works on a variety of surfaces including un-stretched canvas, paper and wood to displace his realistic and symbolic images inspired by the African roots of America.

 

Alvin Burts

Al Burts

Al Burts grew up in Alexandria, VA and received his formal training from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. He is an alumnus of the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, and a retiree of The National Gallery in Washington, D.C.

 

"Alvin"

“Alvin”

Burts is a two time Semi-finalist winner of the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series and will be exhibiting for the second time in Art Basel Miami Beach this December 2012. Burts has exhibited in the National Gallery of Art (Washington, DC), the DuSable Museum of African American History (Chicago, IL), International Visions Gallery (Washington, DC), T. Miller Gallery (Baltimore, MD), Evolve the Gallery (Sacramento, CA), and Gallery Guichard (Chicago, IL).

 

Shawn D. Henderson, M.S, M.F.A:

Shawn was born in Los Angeles, California, and has been involved in the arts for as long as she can remember. The third child of six, her father, John Thomas Riddle, Jr., was a renowned painter, sculptor and art educator.

Shawn, herself a sculptor and painter whose work has been exhibited both locally and throughout the state of Florida, began teaching drawing, painting, ceramics and sculpture at Bak Middle School of the Arts in Palm Beach County 14 years ago. Seeing a need, she recently began counseling children at Bak Middle School as well.  Shawn has earned a Master of Fine Arts from Florida Atlantic University in 2000, and a Master of  Science in Counseling from Nova Southeastern University in 2012.

She has also served as the Arts chairperson and Arts Scholarship chairperson for the West Palm Beach Chapter of the Links, Incorporated. She currently serves on the Executive Director Advisory Committee for the Riviera Beach CRA Marina District.

Shawn believes that a child who is immersed in arts education from an early age excels academically, closing the achievement gap. Research has also shown that the arts help to transform communities by lowering crime rates, bolstering patronage of local businesses, and create a sense of community cohesion.

 

 

Simone de Bernard Mas: Artist Statement

 

 

Simone

Simone de Bernard Mas

As a metalsmith I’m constantly re-arranging molecules. The techniques that I’ve learnt are ancient so I’m constantly engaged in creating contemporary interpretations with metal. The objects that I create seek to capture the myriad textures and patterns that exist in our environment. In every physical moment our senses are made aware of the stimuli in nature that abounds, from animal to plant life, the sea to the sky, vast open spaces and even the landscapes of our own bodies. Unlike other art forms that hang on walls or sit on pedestals my work is meant to be worn, and experienced by the wearer.

 

Jewelry Piece by Simone

Bronze Cuff by Simone

Historically cultures have been defined by adornment of the body; although in current times jewelry has become more about fashion it still represents a sense of identity. My designs exhibit a very strong connection to the feminine and all it encompasses. Being female I strongly identify with nature and its need to constantly renew. I enjoy evoking an excited response from someone over a million year old fossil or texture from the core of a cactus plant. I’m always seeking to reflect nature at its best, something that will intrigue the wearer as much as I am intrigued with the process.
