“See” by Vicki Siegel

“Think” by Vicki Siegel

Vicki Siegel’s work combines painting and photography together. She creates images that unite her fascination with the world around her with the physicality of paint. Blending the two art forms is a process that results in images that are both real and imaginary. The photographers gaze allows her to observe and archive reality, while the paint flows from her subconscious to my brush in marks that are uniquely my own.

Siegel says, “In my work I ask the viewer to engage by comparing what is photographic and what is paint, but also what is personal and what is universal”. It is her hope that the viewer sees her vision of how strange and wonderful life is, and how beautiful nature is and the necessity of preserving it.

Armory Art Center Features Peter D. Gerakaris: “Tropicalia Remix”

The Armory Art Center is pleased to present Tropicália Remix, a solo exhibition by Peter D. Gerakaris. Co-organized with the Cornell Club of Eastern Florida and curated by Cornell alumna Heather Zises, Founder of (READ)art, a selection of new artworks will be showcased in the East Gallery at the Armory Art Center from February 29 to March 18, 2016. The Rickie Report shares details and a sneak peek of this stimulating exhibit!





1700 Parker Avenue, West Palm Beach, FL 33401




Armory Art Center Presents:




” Tropicália Remix”

FEBRUARY 29 – MARCH 18, 2016

Gallery Hours:

Monday- Friday: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm 

Saturday: 9:00 am – 4:00 pm






Drawing upon elements from his recent Cornell Tech commission Tropicália—an immersive 2,000 sq. ft. site-specific installation—Gerakaris will present a selection of new mixed media works on canvas along with a large mural segment from the original show. The exhibition will also feature an ambient soundtrack of exotic tonalities from Tropicália, created by New York composer/producer Trevor Gureckis. Visitors are invited to enjoy an interactive color experience by wearing ChromaDepth 3D glasses (provided by the gallery) which “lift” certain colors off the surface while pushing other colors “behind” the surface.




Tropicália Remix will unfold in two phases. During the first half of the show, the main gallery wall will feature a 5’ vertical scroll-banner inspired by the artist’s Mask Series. For the latter part of the exhibition, the artist will be on site to install a 19’ wide “Tropicália Jungle” mural vignette transplanted from the original Cornell Tech site.






Gerakaris’ distinctive “Post-Pop Botanic” style tickles the retina and mind, presenting a postnatural vision of nature as if diffracted through a pop-cultural lens – a space where nature and culture converge. Engaging motifs such as poisonous flowers, beauty vs. toxicity, our fractured relationship with the natural environment, and the limits of human perception, the artist employs a vibratory palette, kaleidoscopic geometry, and meticulous detail. While firmly rooted in the traditions of drawing and painting by hand, the artist’s mixed- media process inevitably blurs analog and digital boundaries by integrating various emerging technologies. Gerakaris adds, “Perhaps Tropicália Remix parallels the hypercoherence of our contemporary world— a global civilization that is growing almost as wildly and chaotically as nature itself.”





American interdisciplinary artist Peter D. Gerakaris has maintained a NYC studio for over a decade, having earned a BFA from Cornell University in 2003 and an MFA from Hunter College in 2009 where he received the Tony Smith Prize. Gerakaris’ kaleidoscopic paintings, installations, and origami accordion sculptures engage nature-culture themes and are showcased in many prominent institutional collections including the U.S. Department of State Art in Embassies Program Permanent Collection in Libreville, Gabon (Africa), the Schomburg Center, and Citibank, in addition to numerous private collections such as Beth Rudin DeWoody. His artwork has been exhibited around the globe at venues such as the Bronx Museum of the Arts, Daniel Weinberg Gallery, Chinese Contemporary (Beijing), iSolAIR (Cape Verde Islands, West Africa), the National Academy of Fine Arts, and the Mykonos Biennale, and featured in publications like Cool Hunting, Time Out Beijing, the Financial Times, and Architectural Digest. Gerakaris has also created a variety of large-scale, site-specific installations commissioned by Cornell Tech on Roosevelt Island, NY and Bergdorf Goodman on 5th Avenue.
