“The Monster In The Room” by Missy Pierce

 

Pierce specializes in vibrant abstract and figurative paintings that explore the nature of, and search for, identity and inner strength. A repeated theme in her work is that of containment—especially the containment of parts of the self that are concealed in the conflicting roles played in our lives.

 

 

" by Missy Pierce

” Bali” by Missy Pierce

 

Pierce tells The Rickie Report, ” I specialize in vibrant abstract paintings that explore the nature of, and search for, identity.  A theme often repeated in my work is that of “holding it together” or the “containment,” of aspects of one’s self. This dynamic is often explored in the context of domestic roles juxtaposed with conflicting roles as a feminist. In my work, I focus on the images I choose to conceal rather than project in a particular role.  My paintings represent the release of those otherwise suppressed images. “

 

by Missy Pierce

“Mommy Used To Be So Pretty” by Missy Pierce

 

She goes on to explain, “I work with acrylics, papers, and tar gel applied in multiple layers to create a canvas with texture, depth and history. My work has often been subjected to a final harmonizing agent, such as detailed pattern-making, sanding with power tools or “pours” that have been partially dissolved to reveal evocative glimpses of the underlying layers.”

 

by Missy Pierce

“The Snarl” by Missy Pierce

 

 

Pierce’s work can be found in public and private art collections both in the United States and abroad, and has been seen in numerous exhibitions. Her work may currently be seen in places as diverse as the Percy Thomson Gallery in Stratford, New Zealand to the Whole Foods Market Cafe in Boca Raton, 1400 Glades Road and the West Boca Imaging Center on 7070 W. Palmetto Park Rd.

"Anatomy of a Collage" by Janet Gold

“Anatomy of a Collage” by Janet Gold

 

Janet Gold tells The Rickie Report, ” This is Confessions of a Bookkiller… For this exhibit, I have created and curated a cohesive show of my recent work. I work with collage for its limitless possibilities. I search for vintage papers combing old bookstores, antique stores, flea markets, and the inimitable and irreplaceable EBay for my materials. I work with old books, book covers, and papers combining them with string, text, calligraphy, thread, paper, paper dolls, fabrics, vitreous and detritus and an occasional rusty bottle cap and/or found object. Things bought and things found. The collages are then assemblages of paper history built with old books as their base, ledgers from the 1800’s, mixed with text and wallpaper from the 1930’s, and fabric from men’s silk shirts from the 1980’s”.

 

 

"Mixed Message" by Janet Gold

“Mixed Message” by Janet Gold

 

“The birdcages are the newest path in my evolution from 2-D to 3-D work. They are spontaneous, creative, and decidedly quirky. The birdcages show up at my studio, and then there is a period of pure unadulterated creativity, from beginning to end. Collecting paper, cutting, sewing, weights and counterweights, design, placement, and balancing, all orchestrated into a final product, which is always a surprise, even to me. Come see the show. Come see all of the old books and birdcages that have been rescued”.

Brigitte Balbinot tells us, ” When I create, it is my way to communicate with the world. With each painting, there is a special dialogue that is intimate. I aim to provoke an emotional reaction in the viewer. Sometimes it is in the form of a question; sometimes it is simply a feeling or a mood that comes about. Regardless of its interpretation, I strive to inspire”.

 

brigittebamboo-ii

“Bamboo II” by Brigitte Balbinot

 

 

“I favor abstract painting and use a minimalistic approach in my work. To me simplicity is about bringing order to complexity. When the work is streamlined, it enables the mind to expand. Only then can imagination happen. I love depth and textures, they remind me of what once was”.

 

"Wasabi" by Brigitte Balbinot

“Wasabi” by Brigitte Balbinot

 

 

“The philosophy Wabi-Sabi from the Zen Buddhist culture that is centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection plays a definite role in my creative process. My paintings sometimes appear to be “scarred” and “worn”, survivors of a long journey having a story to tell… Working with oil paint, pigments and various mediums allow me to create a work that is rich in substance and interesting to look at. I prefer to work large as it creates a stronger focal point that captures the viewer’s attention”.

 

 

"Japan" by Brigitte Balbinot

“Japan” by Brigitte Balbinot

 

 

Brigitte Balbinot, Artist, was born in Lausanne, Switzerland.  Over the years, she  traveled extensively throughout Europe, Asia and Africa. These experiences have contributed to define her as an Artist.  In 1988, a visit in Paris was a turning point. At the Pompidou Museum, the discovery of Salvador Dali’s work “The Persistence of Memory”, in which melting watches rest in an eerily calm landscape inspired her to create art that  convey self-reflection, emotional response and inspiration.

 

"Windmill" by Brigitte Balbinot

Windmill” by Brigitte Balbinot

 

“My work  is about feelings and emotions”  she says. The use of textures, juxtaposition of numerous layers of paint and special pigments  contribute to add depth and light to her paintings which are meant to be interesting, complex and simple all at the same time.

 

 

"Lost Civilization" by Brigitte Balbinot

“Lost Civilization” by Brigitte Balbinot

 

 

Brigitte’s work is part of  private collections and commercial collections in North America and Europe.  The Artist divides her time between her two studios located in South Florida and the province of Quebec. Her paintings have garnered awards and accolades wherever she has exhibited.

“All Together” by Patricia Maguire

 

 

 

Patricia Maguire’s view is that,” Art is nature as seen through the filter of emotions.”  She explains to The Rickie Report, ” I have been drawing and painting all my life. Sometimes, even when my hands are still, I am painting in my mind. I see the world through the prism of light and shapes.  I have not chosen to paint, rather it has chosen me, and I feel it is something I must do.”

 

"View from Ponte Vecchio Three" by Patricia Maguire

“View from Ponte Vecchio”  by Patricia Maguire

 

 

“My formative years were spent in big cities, with lots of access to museums, galleries and schools, but I have chosen to be closer to nature in the last decades. I live on the water, and escape to the mountains. I hope this love of our natural world communicates itself to you in my work. I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and spent years in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Caracas, Venezuela. I have now lived in Florida, USA, for the past decades. Each country has left footprints,” she shares.

For decades, Judy Eisinger had created stunningly beautiful mixed-media paintings – mostly for others to enjoy.  With her first grandchild on the way, Judy wanted to create something for her son and daughter-in-law to enjoy-something personal, and binding, between them and the new baby, Ethan. “I just wanted to create a work of art that always reminded them of the love and joy of being parents.” she says.  Thus tinook.com was born.

 

"Tinook"

As babies grow up, Judy realized that their room’s decor changes as well!  At Wellington ArtFest, she will unveil her newest artwork for children’s’ rooms.  These bold and bright prints are ready to frame and reasonably priced.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Impressionism is not a movement; it is a philosophy of lifeMax Libermann

Judy tells The Rickie Report, “For me, art has always evolved from impressions of life, rather than a strict rendering of a given subject. In every new painting, I love the ebb and flow of line and bold colors, the power of less is more, and the ways simplicity and boldness together can magically evoke sensation”.

 

She explains, “To make these wonderful discoveries and impressions, I begin with the traditional paper and pencil emboldened by techniques using new technology. This method gives me the freedom to focus on being truly imaginative and unbounded, in my approach to the subject, in my process, in my technique”.

 

 

"Girl"

“Girl”

 

 

 

“My style of painting may have changed over the years, but my fascination with the human condition as a subject matter has not. My favorite figure painting was done in college—an aging female model wearing the scars of life. The first painting I ever sold in the early ‘70s was of a homeless man in the depth of a Cleveland winter.   I paint because it’s what I love to do, and always have.  My first painting was in third grade. My last one, thankfully, is yet to come”, Judy relates.

 

"Numbers"

“Numbers”

 

Judy attended Kent State University (Bachelor of Fine Arts/ minor in education), Cleveland Institute of Art and Cooper School of Art.  Her professional career includes: Yudit Design; Daniels & Roberts Ad Agency, Boca Raton; Lion Greeting Cards, Tel Aviv, Israel; Griswold-Eshelman Advertising, Cleveland, Ohio; and Penton Publishing, Cleveland, Ohio.   Judy is an Adjunct Professor at Palm Beach State College, “Designing on the MAC”.

 

"Boy"

“Boy”

 

 

Judy is  the author and illustrator of ” !SEE!  Whatever I want a line to be, children’s book on creativity” and has taken awards in many exhibitions.  Judy’s work has been seen  at:  Florida Artist, Anti-Defamation League juried exhibition, ArtWorks ADL: Justice, Advocacy & Art, Whole Foods, SOLO Exhibit, Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, ‘Playbill’ cover winner, City of Delray, ‘First Night’ poster winner, Wellington Art Society, poster winner, Palm Beach County Art in Public Places – Airport, Dole Foods, three 30 second ‘Bobby Banana’ TV spots, American Advertising Federation, Silver ADDYs and People Choice Award, Progressive Insurance, First place poster winner, Ft.

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!

The Englishman Fine Art Gallery will be showing her work at the upcoming Naples Art, Antique and Jewelry Show February 7 – 11 and at the Palm Beach Jewelry, Art, and Antique Show at the Palm Beach County Convention Center February 15 – 19. In addition, Deborah’s work will be on exhibit with CK Contemporary of San Francisco for the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair February 15-17th  and she will have a Solo show at The Englishman Fine Art Gallery in Naples, FL on March 14th.  http://www.theenglishmanusa.com/new/default.asp  and http://ckcontemporary.com/ 

Dynamism

Dynamism


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.”
