“What Lies Beyond” by Robin Wolfenden

“What Lies Beyond” is her entry for the All Florida Juried Art Show- original art print on metal- 16×24

 

 

 

Robin Wolfenden tells The Rickie Report, “After a fulfilling career as a wall covering designer, I’ve continued my artistic pursuits in a variety of mediums. My style is decorative, as I’m inspired by my surroundings and personal journey, creating a look full of light, color and optimism”.

 

Robin graduated from Syracuse University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.  She worked in New York in the garment district as a fabric designer before moving to Cleveland, Ohio with her husband to raise their family. Robin continued her career in fabric and wall covering, and by the 1980’s, she was head stylist for the high end wall covering division of Imperial Wallcoverings.

 

 

“Waterlilies” is an oil painting from Dennis Aufiery’s class- he said this was my break thru painting!

 

 

 

Robin began printing her wall coverings at a factory in Milan, Italy to insure the quality effect she desired. She says, “I travelled to Milan often to print my collections and attended design exhibitions throughout Europe. Jannelli & Volpi, an Italian wall covering company, then hired me as their stylist and North American Product Manager. In 2008, my husband and I retired to West Palm Beach, Florida, where I re-established my love for painting. I found the Armory Art Center and started taking art classes again, which I hadn’t done since college. I studied figure drawing and oil painting under Dennis Aufiery. I was introduced to the natural and intriguing qualities of mosaics. I then discovered Nihonga through Hiromi Katayama”.

 

 

 

“The Blossoming of the Gift” by Robin Wolfenden is 48×48 and hangs in the lobby of The Consulate at The Lands of the President- Nihonga

 

 

“Nihonga”, Robin explains, “is a Japanese style of painting which uses brilliant natural pigments that are made from pulverized semi precious stones which I grind by hand and mix with an animal based collagen from Japan. The pigments are applied in varying degrees of intensity and transparency. I began experimenting with them over a colorful textured acrylic base, which allows the colors to play against each other. I’ve begun adding my own pigmented and batik resist washi papers in a collage effect to add even more interest and dimension. I have had the unique opportunity to teach this process at the West Palm Beach Library”.

 

Robin Wolfenden at Continuum 2018

 

 

Robin’s journey continues as she further expand her art techniques by expressing her creativity through play. She relates, “I may dance and sing before painting to bring positive energy and excitement into my art. I have given myself the opportunity to play with color and explore new materials I hadn’t tried before.  My latest works were created as a result of a blindfolded painting experience where I painted freely with tempera paints. I created original prints from my palette, experimenting with viscosity and movement, positive and negative space, and color placement. The prints were enlarged and printed on a glossy metal to enhance their luminosity. These pieces were selected to be a part of the Continuum Art Fair in West Palm Beach in January and won the People’s Choice award”!

 

 

 

 

“Cascade” by Robin Wolfenden is a diptych- Nihonga

 

 

I believe in the beauty and power of personal expression. My artwork has been shown at the Armory Art Center, Rosenbaum Art Gallery in Boca Raton, and Armand Bolling Fine Art in Jupiter. It is included in private collections in Florida, New York, Arizona, Connecticut, and Tennessee. Currently my work can be found throughout the lobby of the Consulate at Lands of the President in West Palm Beach and in Nashville at Art & Invention Gallery and Modern Remains Design Atelier.

Elayna Toby’s “Art That Moves” : Imaginative Mobiles For Your Home And Garden and Wearable Kinetic Adornments

Artist Elayna Toby sees an interconnectedness of nature and human-made items that most of us miss. She started as a jeweler in the late 1980’s and has been creating mobiles since the mid 1990’s and incorporating “found objects” since 2003. She has had commissioned works and exhibitions throughout Palm Beach County over the past seven years. Her true joy is transforming ordinary objects into the extraordinary.  Elayna Toby’s re-imagining and re-purposing  brings us decorative kinetic mobile for the home and garden plus wearable sculpture! Her moving sculptures stir, sway and twirl outdoors in the wind – and indoors by the breeze of a fan or vent.  Feel the freedom of the movement! The Rickie Report shares Elayna Toby’s journey to bring us “Art That Moves” just in time for the holidays. Here are some sneak peeks and the story of her journey.

ART THAT MOVES

An Introduction:

” Mobiles, Kinetic-Connections,” 

and

“RePurposing”

 

ElaynaTobyimage002

Elayna Toby

 

Elayna Toby Singer shares, “I am drawn to materials that come from the earth and to forms transformed through encounters with the elements. Presented in new contexts, each object’s intrinsic beauty is revealed. Balance and movement stir from the center connecting with our emotional, physical and spiritual core. Linking one object to the next, both physically and visually, awareness moves between root and crown. The space between reminds us to breathe. With each twirl and sound, energy shifts, spirit awakens, transformation occurs”.

 

 

Over a year ago, as the City of Boynton Beach prepared for the 2015 International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium, Elayna Toby’s vision for transforming an old kapok tree into a kinetic sculpture was percolating. For three days only, February 6-8, 2015, the tree was transformed into living kinetic art with 16-foot long, twirling strands bedecking its grand limbs.  This magical community art project was honored with the “People’s Choice Award,” selected by thousands of attendees who voted on 14 outdoor showcased kinetic sculptures by artists from around the world.

“Kinetic-Connections” at the kapok tree 

 

Elayna Toby conceived of “Kinetic Connections” as a way to encourage everyone to tap their inner artist, re-imagine everyday objects as art, and to join in on the transformative project. She held community workshops; provided County-wide drop boxes for contributed items; and ultimately combined the items with her own pieces to craft the thousands of objects into the kinetic strands.

Selected from more than 100 International entries, “Kinetic-Connections” was featured as one of 25 Kinetic Projects in CODA magazine, being. The creative up-cycling, community art project Kinetic-Connections is still making an impact in the art world.

Elayna Toby “Re-Imagining” in her studio

“Re-Imagination Series”

 

The artist tells The Rickie Report, “During the Kinetic Art Symposium half of the 16 foot long strands were sold right off the tree. To celebrate “the season of light” and forthcoming New Year, the remaining strands from the kapok tree are being “Re-Imagined” into 4 foot strands with more embellishments, including additional mirrors which delightfully reflect and bounce the light. These new mobiles are now available in my online shop to add twirling happiness to one’s home or garden”.

“Excessories”

 

Recently inspired by a friend wondering what to do with the remaining “onesie” earrings after its match is lost or broken, Elayna Toby created “Excessories”, which invited the public to contribute their excess accessory pieces towards the original project. A percent of proceeds will benefit the development of the local fashion district in Palm Beach County.

 

 

 

10 upcycle excessory_ElaynaTobyArt

 

Elayna Toby continued her tradition of collecting “stories of stuff,” which provided a rich narrative for the individual pieces, and for the sculpture composition as a whole. She tells us, ” A tape measure from noted Worth Avenue designer Alfred Fiadace; a lapel pin in the shape of a submarine donated from the wife of a man who retired from the Navy – the stories are moving, whimsical and meaningful.

Note the “onesie” earring which is now part of  “Excessories” 

 

 

Nearly 200 re-imagined pieces were combined into a rich composition of colors, textures and sounds. The individual “excessories” themselves include pieces by Roberto Cavalli and Versace, vintage couture, tools of the trade (spools, tape measures) and more. The results is a kinetic wall sculpture; a visual tapestry woven with the histories behind each piece.

Personalized Adornments:

 

Elayna Toby began as a jewelry designer, fashioning her first kinetic piece as earrings. Her “aha” mobile moment happened when she was working at a botanical garden. Inspired by Mother Nature’s exquisite beauty, Elayna Toby collected fallen seeds and branches which she combined with beads to create her earliest kinetic works.  The journey continues today with her mobile kinetic earrings that express her passion for repurposing and creative reuse.

 

 

Elayna Toby uses only “cold connections” – no welding or soldering. She combines wrapping and knotting techniques, swivels and metal links, to connect one object to another.  Re-imagined and re-purposed everyday objects are combined to extraordinary effect.  All of her moving sculpture and kinetic jewelry are one-of-a-kind.

“Wash & Wear Series”

“The “Wash & Wear” series features found washers I’ve collected, cleaned and cleverly re-imagined. Given that washers hold things together, stability and connection will come to all who adorn themselves with these wearable kinetic sculptures”.
