The Adolph and Rose Levis JCC’s Nathan D. Rosen Museum Gallery will exhibit the paintings of internationally renowned painter Deborah Bigeleisen from March 8 through May 15, 2015. The gallery is located at the Levis JCC’s Phyllis & Harvey Sandler Center for Jewish Life Enhancement at 21050 95th Avenue S. in Boca Raton. The public is invited to the Opening Day Reception from 1 to 4 pm on Sunday, March 8. At 1:30 pm, Ms. Bigeleisen will discuss her artwork and creative concepts at a special Artist Talk.

 

 

The title of the exhibition is “MULTIPLE PERSPECTIVES: the Evolution of an Artist’s Vision” which traces the path of the artist’s focus from creating Rembrandt-like portraits of white roses to her more evocative contemporary views that are an abstracted fractal of the original floral form although still suggestive of its organic roots. Though her paintings have been mentioned alongside Georgia O’Keefe, Bigeleisen brings a unique and distinctive 21st Century perspective to the floral genre.

“I am thrilled to be partnering with the Rosen Museum Gallery at the Sandler Center for this exhibition. Because of the Jewish Community Center’s fine reputation and extensive reach, this is an ideal opportunity to connect with a very broad and diverse audience, including children whose exposure to fine art may be minimal,” she adds. “With both the exhibition and my opening day presentation on ‘The Evolution of an Artist’s Vision,’ I’d like to initiate a dialogue that is not only about looking at art with a new curiosity, but also about looking at the world around us with a fresh perspective.”

Bigeleisen hopes the MULTIPLE PERSPECTIVES exhibition will encourage “everyone to take a pause from their every day routine, to shift the conversation from technology to creativity, and to discover the richness of art not only in our own backyard, but where ever we go.”

About Deborah Bigeleisen:

Flowers and nature have been the inspiration for Deborah Bigeleisen’s artistic expression since childhood, and are the common thread that weave through both her careers: first as a textile print designer and founder of her own global design company in NYC, and later as a fine artist which she began in 1998 upon moving to West Palm Beach, FL. In the early years of her painting career she was mentored by acclaimed technical master Sam Perry and guided by renowned visionary Gordon Parks. She also completed rigorous training through Master Artist Workshops.

How Chaos Theory and Fractals Influence Deborah Bigeleisen’s Artistic Vision

When you see her art, you are transformed.  Deborah Bigeleisen’s florals intensely magnify everything.  You are only looking at portion of a petal on a large canvas.  And yet you understand innately that you are seeing only a smaller part of the larger whole.  While maintaining a studio in West Palm Beach, Bigeleisen’s art career is taking her to all parts of the globe. The Rickie Report knows you will appreciate how her philosophy informs her artistry when you see it!

CK Contemporary is the living master artists gallery expansion of the Christopher Clark Fine Art Gallery of 19th and 20th century master works. Using light as her muse, Deborah works with oils and glazing mediums applying more than twenty translucent layers to mold her forms and give them a new life-force!

She tells us, “As an artist who has always used natural forms as my subject and began my career by painting Rembrandt-like portraits of white roses, my interest in Chaos Theory and fascination with one of its components – fractals – has permanently transformed my artistic vision. To paraphrase William Blake, I see the world in a grain of sand, and heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of my hand, and eternity in an hour.”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHer subject is no longer simply a flower.  Bigeleisen has discovered an inexhaustible richness of the structure that goes beyond what is recognizable to the naked eye. “By peeling away the layers and magnifying the image to its core, I’ve gained a deeper insight into the universal properties of all natural phenomena because I’ve uncovered a dynamic system whose pattern repeats in other phenomena.”

“This is where my work takes the literal definition of a fractal – the self-similarity of an object of nature that is repeated thousands of times at different magnifications (picture a head of broccoli) – and broadens the scope beyond a single object. It is not my objective to convey every orifice and streak of my subject’s surface, but rather to capture its character and essence with the ultimate objective to immortalize the transitory nature of life.”  

Deborah goes on to explain, “Magnifying the fractals beyond the core of a flower to the pure abstraction of the form, my work assumes a new choreography, energy and spirit having been totally freed from the constraints inherent in creating any depiction of representational work through the forms may suggest a natural likeness, reflective of their supple, sensuous and erotic origins. My canvases now explode with a new life-force as I focus on the movement and distribution of space across the surface, while continuing to use color and contrast to draw the viewer in and then back out.”

Deborah works exclusively from her own images and has taken photographs at botanical gardens all over North America (Rose Hills Memorial Park, Whittier,CA; Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, PA; and her favorite – Butchart Gardenson Vancouver Island, Victoria, BC).  She also studied with “The Father of Digital Art” and good friend, Laurence Gartel.  Her work has been included in numerous juried events at museums and exhibitions around the U.S., beginning here, in Palm Beach County.

Deborah shares her philosphy, “Echoing the personal philosophy of Rembrandt who ‘loved what he painted and only painted what he loved’ I continue to be captivated by natural forms. A portrait painter has a duty to reveal the character of his subject – his mood, inner drama, and mystery – not merely copy a likeness. Applying similar principles to my painting practice, I use light as my muse and work with oils and glazing mediums applying upwards of twenty translucent layers over a comprehensively developed under-painting to mold the forms and to capture the depth of my subject’s anatomy, its dynamism, its turbulence, and its unpredictability”

“Since color has a significant impact on one’s perception, I use a carefully controlled palette to engage the viewer to question his own bond between human activity and the patterns and cycles of nature.”
