“Maroon Bells” by Petr Bednarik

Petr says, “I’m sorry if I am going to disappoint you, but these are not pictures and I am not a National Geographic photographer. I am an artist and what you see are windows and doors to the soul. My media is photography.  I use landscapes and cityscapes as my key to open those window and doors. You will not see people in my images and if you do it is just to provide a scale to what is around them.  Usually they are small and it is difficult to even find them. A man is not the center of a universe despite acting like one.  The soul is vast and filled with love, understanding and compassion. What is reflected in my photography is the human soul. First seen by my eyes and then captured by a digital or film media, an open window revealing beauty, gentleness and hope.  The same beauty gentleness and hope the Creator reflected in our being. Now take another look around you and let your soul immerse in the Supreme soul of the Universe.  There is no wall between you and the Creator. Without you there is no Universe and without the Universe you are not.”

The artistic media with broad appeal will include paintings, sculptures, photography, ceramics, glass, wood, handmade jewelry, collage, mixed media and much more. The prices will be set to suit all budgets; perfect for art enthusiasts and collectors as well as the casual shopper interested in unique gift items. 

 

Jim Bobick

 

 

 

 

Jim’s work is an exploration of light and color- a physical translation of his ideas surrounding the ethereal. His inspiration comes from many sources: ancient philosophy, the sky, the ocean, music, and poetry. His painting process is intuitive and reactive – he applies several thin layers of oil, each layer a reaction to the one applied before it, letting the painting guide itself to its final incarnation. Jim is from the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC. In 1998, he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Maryland. Since graduating, Jim had a career as an art teacher and a career in the financial industry before settling fulltime as an artist. Since then, Jim has exhibited his work extensively around the country and his paintings are included in many public and private collections throughout the United States and Canada. He has won numerous awards and has been reviewed in major newspapers.  Jim lives, works, and owns a gallery in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

A portion of the proceeds from the festival benefits the Downtown Delray Beach Development Authority. The mission of the DDA is to oversee business development, market and promote the merchants of the district, communicate and facilitate a clean and safe community and work to enhance physical improvements.

“Tres Amigos” by Carla Blank

 

 

 


Carla tells us,”I have a passion for painting that has been with me since childhood. That coupled with my love of pop culture, brings my vision to canvas. Being a native of Mexico, and having been a Chicagoland resident for many years, I bring a unique perspective to modern art. My inspiration is all around me in this great city and my use of color stems from the celebrated artistic heritage of my home country.  I paint familiar people, places and things and the ultimate goal of my art is to bring joy to those who view it. I don’t limit my art to canvas, other materials such as wood and glass have also been vehicles for artistic expression. My process usually involves traditional brushes, but most recently I have experimented with finger painting, and found it to be another liberating way to express my creativity”.

Harold Silvers tells The Rickie Report, “You may have seen my pointillism designs in the windows of Cartier Jewelers or Bonwit Teller. Now you can see what I have been creating since leaving the graphic art world. I moved to Southern Florida five years ago and have gone back to my roots as an artist. I graduated from NYC Community College for Commercial Art and Parsons School of Design for Graphic Design.”

“Steel Wave” by Harold Silvers

 

 

 

Harold has used a radiograph pen, magic marker, stencils and air brush techniques as well as computer design. He explains, “My pointillism designs as have to do with Nature, Time, Space and Infinity. I started pointillism in my college days, and decided that I should get back to doing it again, being retired. I make the designs one dot at a time.”

“Optical” by Harold Silvers

 

 

 

 

 

 

How does he keep all of the design elements in perspective?  He says, “one has to have a certain mind set to do this kind of art. I usually have a concept of how I want the design to look before I start… Sometimes I let the dots take me for the ride.”

Harold offers prints on paper from 6 x 9, and digital prints on canvas up to 30 x 45. He can also make color variations of the design. Harold makes the highest quality Giclee’s. At times, he might show one of his designs completed on translucent film with a light behind it.

CORDERO Returns to Miami after NYC and Paris Debuts

After a four week exhibition in New York City followed by a week in Paris at the Grand Palais for the French Ministry of Culture & Communication’s annual “Art En Capital” exhibition, internationally acclaimed figurative portrait artist “CORDERO” is back on terra firma for her first exhibit of 2015 at Art Fusion Galleries in Miami’s Wynwood Art District for their “Polychromatic Visions” exhibit January 2 – March 16th.  The Rickie Report shares the details and celebrates CORDERO’s return to our area! The Wynwood Art Walk takes place the same night, so this is a great opportunity to make an evening of dinner in Miami and fine art.

“Polychromatic Visions”

CORDERO

CORDERO with her painting, "

CORDERO in Paris, with her painting, “Reina Sofia”

 

 

CORDERO has been painting and sculpting for more than 30 years. Trained as an Alzheimer’s nurse, the artist turned her attention to painting. She’d come home and paint for hours as a release. She tells The Rickie Report, “I found that I loved color and that creating faces in sculpture led me to realize that I was drawn to creating faces with paint.”

 

"Le Coup D'oeil" by CORDERO

“Le Coup D’oeil” by CORDERO

 

William Braemer, director of Art Fusion Galleries, calls CORDERO’s works “brilliant.” Combining surrealistic aspects with realistic tendencies, CORDERO creates figurative portraits that are “whimsical and full of fantasy, yet there’s a sense where this fantasy becomes reality.” Braemer, who represents Cordero, says the artist is really someone that “collectors should want to consider”. Angela DiBello, executive director of the world-renowned Agora Gallery in New York City, calls CORDERO a “true artist whose captivating stylistic expression is unique and distinctively original.”

 

"Joie de Vivre" by CORDERO

“Joie de Vivre” by CORDERO

 

As elegant as they are compelling, each contemporary portrait features an elongated face with large, expressive eyes and a strong emphasis on elements of light and shadow.

 

CORDERO

CORDERO and “Empress of the Sea”

 

Oil and mixed media are her mediums of choice. Loose, dramatic brushstrokes of vibrant color combinations lend texture and depth to each image and create a strong sense of emotive expression. Within her work, CORDERO seeks to capture the essence of the human spirit within her larger than life faces. Thus, the hallmarks of her portraits are the soulful eyes and expressive facial expressions of her subjects, which invite the viewer to look closer and behold the true beauty hidden within the larger image – perhaps even enabling them to forge an emotional connection. As CORDERO explains, “my portraits are intuitively and psychologically-stylized expressions of my soul.”

 

CORDERO

“Haute Couture” by CORDERO

 

 

Based on recent sales, CORDERO’s work is resonating in a big way with her audiences. In fact, it was through her exposure at Art Fusion Galleries this past Spring that one of the “Art En Capital” show coordinators discovered CORDERO and invited her to exhibit in Paris.

 

 

"Empress of the Twilight" by CORDERO

“Empress of the Twilight” by CORDERO

 

 

The “Polychromatic Visions” exhibition at Art Fusion Galleries is particularly special for this artist. Beyond being her first show of the year, it features three of her grand scale paintings 72″ x 60″ including the two “queens: “Empress of the Sea” and “Empress of the Twilight” which will be accompanied by “Joie de Vivre” and “Le Coup D’oeil” (the glance)
