“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.

Joni Berte tells The Rickie Report, ” My artistic interests are endless! I appreciate all forms of art; traditional, classic, deviant, outsider, you name it! It is my belief that there are many ways to express oneself and art is food for the soul. Self-expression is paramount to the artist and the drive to create is as impossible to stop as a runaway train. For the past few years I have focused on Day of the Dead art, and have developed a unique style that is the hallmark of my pieces.”

 

Personal Shrine by Joni Berte

Personal Shrine by Joni Berte

 

She continues, “While many of my Day of the Dead designs, particularly those found on my Sugar Skull masks, are typical of the genre, my execution is of the highest quality — especially in the areas of line detail and color. I am currently working on assemblage art in the form of Personal Shrines and am finding it a very versatile and rewarding medium. Additionally, I am collaborating with my father (Bill Lohnes) on Fantasy Dragonflies. My new Fire-Carved Boxes are for sale at Rare Earth Gallery in Stuart, Florida.”

Neubert’s recent art explores the relationship between his visual art and life in a playful combination of word play, expressionism and his own reality.  This journey began with his first Brownie Hawkeye camera, continuing with drawing, and ceramics, through the grid of warp and weft into digital pixilation.

What happens when you mix Wood, Glass and Clay???   You get an amazing, creative, new art form from three accomplished Artists.   The collaboration of this one of a kind mixed media show started out as a friendship between fellow artists Pamela Carman, Carolyn Austin and Bill Jones sharing ideas and admiring each other’s designs.  

They competed individually, at some of the same competitions, and won awards together. The list of their successes and their ability to teach, exhibit, and give back to the Palm Beach Art communities is commendable.   They started talking, sketching, etching, cutting, turning and gluing………!!!!!!

The majority of her work is inspired by and based in nature. Recurring animal themes, especially of birds and fish can be seen in her most recent work. They are meant to bring a smile or chuckle.

Carolyn has lived in the Jupiter/Tequesta area since 1979 and developed an eye for the tropical Florida scenes from long legged birds to intensely detailed ocean life which in turn creates one of kind glass art. She tells us, “I love working with people and using my 25 years plus of experience to create a beautiful customized look in glass whether it be an entrance way or a free standing piece of glass art. All my designs are created by hand, an intricate detailed process to enhance each client’s home and personality. Making my glass art a personal favorite for each client is always satisfying.
