RAMEL    JASIR

 

“Sankofa” by Ramel Jasir

 

 

Ramel was born and raised in Portsmouth, Virginia and has been involved in creative art since he was very young.  His older brother introduced him to art by having him draw Batman’s ears.  This was the beginning of his evolving as an artist. He is a self taught artist who hones his skills through experimental learning, research and a passion to bring realism, authenticity and strong emotion to all his creations. 

 

“An Orange Moon” by Ramel Jasir

 

Ramel continues to evolve as an artist and is inspired by the plurality of his cultural heritage and the diverse cultural and tribal art by Native, Americans and the petroglyph art of Puerto Rico.  He uses the beauty and diversity of the people to reaffirm the commonalities that bind us as one humanity. 

 

 

“Incompredido” by Ramel Jasir

 

He creates art that is inspiring, evocative, educational and true.  Ramel tells The Rickie Report, “I like to describe my work as a voice in color that resonates various emotionally charged motifs of love, family, universal human rights and politics”.

 

 

 

 

 

The Wellington Art Society is a non-profit charitable organization in its 37th year. It is open to artists of all mediums and patrons of the arts, allowing both local and regional artists to display their art work in local galleries, interact with other artists and serve the community through their art.

Summer exhibitions continue with reduced prices for entry as these shows are not judged. The league retains 20% of all sales. That percentage along with membership, entry fees and our volunteers, helps keep the gallery open and your work visible to the public. A reception with light refreshment is held for each show.

Arturo Avila-Garcia

 

 

 

 

Arturo Avila-Garcia spent his first years of college studying psychology which inspired him to express himself by painting. After two years of embracing the notion that “reality has no limits to examine our certainties about ourselves and our community”, he changed careers to focus on a BFA with concentration on painting. In 1992 he was chosen by The Museum of Modern Art in Bogota for their biannual exhibition as one of the most influential young artists. Previously, he participated at an Art convocation from the Institute that promotes higher education (ICFES) and was awarded Honorable Mention for an installation that feature painting, sculpture and neon lights. The following year he had his first SOLO exhibition at the Santa Gallery, title “Idols”.

 

 

With a BFA and a lot of expectations, he came to the US and has resided in Florida for 25 years. Over time, it became very clear that he was getting into his second journey of “self discovery”. He’s been earning a living through the construction, retail, hospitality and education industries, always keeping the concentration in developing a language and identity as a painter.  He uses various mediums such as pencil, chalk, acrylic and oil on canvas. Arturo, being true to his passion, has also taken on visual decorative and freelance custom paintings projects for companies like Bloomingdales and private collectors. In 2005 he graduated with a Masters in Education with concentration in Curriculum and Instruction and accepted an art teaching position at Olympic Heights Community High School in Boca Raton, Florida.

Custom Installation at Bloomingdales by Arturo Avila-Garcia

 

Arturo has been in collective exhibitions with Broward Art Guild, Boca Raton Art Guild and the Artists of Palm Beach County where he was won awards for his paintings.  He tells The Rickie Report, “The passion of how I approach the painting process gives me an outlet to communicate with people in a non-verbal level”.  He expresses himself through images and ideas relative to paint and color, to deliver a visual message of his life journey, resulting in his latest project titled “Blues”. The series is inspired by “One Hundred Years of Solitude”, a novel by Gábriel Garcia Marquez and his own personal journey.

 

” Salsa Blues ” by Arturo Avila-Garcia

Arturo shares with The Rickie Report, “The narrative in my paintings combined abstract realism or figurative and magic realism or realistic fiction. I am inspired by artist like Matisse and Vermeer. Influenced by music that I found a correlation with painting. Also by images of people and their inner sensations and sentiments. During my exploration of elements of dreams, fantasy and reality, the literature world of  magic realism from Garcia Marquez’s Hundred Years of Solitude, inspired some of the paintings. Blues I and Blues II depicted a moment where the introduction to ice is a magic situation, comes naturally, as a simple, everyday occurrence in which fantastical things are treated not just as possible, but also as realistic.  My paintings often have vibrant colors, a realistic view reminiscent of the tropical colors from the equatorial location of Colombia, for this exhibit I used one primary color and one secondary color to visual balance the color composition as it is a musical composition, a blues with flowing lines like the mountain landscape creating figures attaching the lines and forms to the composition with harmony and rhythm”. 

 

 

” Matisse Blues ” by Arturo Avila-Garcia

 

 

Arturo explains, “My paintings often have vibrant colors, reminiscent of the tropical colors from the equatorial location of Colombia with flowing lines like the mountain landscape, creating figures attaching the lines and forms to the composition.   This creative exploration you may think, is a contradiction between magic realism and realistic fiction.  After all, how can something be both magical and real? Magic isn’t real – or is it? In Latin America, the continent from which the genre of magical realism was cultivated, there is an attitude that anything can happen –  even miracles. My interpretation of magical realism is closely connected to my Catholic religious background, which believes in miracles and other spontaneous and indescribable abstract phenomena.  In my work this abstract element is determined by the expression and by the form”.

” Dualism has been an influence on every aspect of my artistic development, interpreting and balancing two realities. The same narrative could be applicable to the immigrant artist like myself in another country with a different culture and language… two different worlds, two realities are a continuous challenge that enriched individuality. My interest is a visual balance of realism or figurative art and abstract art”.

 

” Blues” by Arturo Avila-Garcia

 

 

 

Arturo’s artwork has been exhibited  end awarded at: The Museum of Modern Art in Bogota, ICFES (Colombian Institution for Higher Education) , Artists of Palm Beach County, Santa Gallery, (“Idols”), University Gallery Bogotá, Broward Art Guild, Boca Raton Art Guild, Artisans on the Ave., and APBC Art on Park Gallery

“Blues V” by Arturo Avila-Garcia

 

 

He shares, ” The narrative in my paintings combines abstract realism or figurativism and magic realism or realistic fiction. I am inspired by my surroundings, elements and objects. Also by images of people and their inner sensations and sentiments. During the exploration of elements of dreams, fantasy and reality, I found the world of magic realism from García Márquez’s Macondo, where magic comes naturally, as a simple, everyday occurrence in which fantastical things are treated not just as possible, but also as realistic. Ordinary objects and events are enchanted. As the gypsy Melquíades says in the first paragraph of the Garcia Marquez’s novel, “Things have a life of their own. It’s simply a question of waking up their souls.”

About Ferjo

 

Fernando de Jesus Oliveira (known as Ferjo) was born in Bahia, Brazil in 1946.  He studied at the prestigious Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts from 1974-1979, where he concentrated on landscape and portraiture. It was during this time that Ferjo began painting Cubist style landscapes and eventually moving to realist portraiture. This latter style is best evidenced by a mock group portrait (1978-1979) of the faculty of the Pennsylvania Academy, in which Ferjo posed his subjects in positions reminiscent of those of Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Last Supper”. Since receiving special accolades from the Pennsylvania Academy, first in 1978 and then again in 1979, Ferjo’s command of realist painting became widely recognized in galleries. After leaving The Academy, Ferjo’s natural artistry led him to explore a myriad of themes and styles, ranging from Realism to Surrealism.

 

 

Ferjo’s compositions combine the old masters and the new, in a magical bounty of color, surrealism, fantasy and beauty. His affinity for tokens adds a personal dimension to each work. Images of pencils, bubbles, fish, strawberries, and broken eggshells float throughout his work. The surrealist worlds he creates pay homage to Bosch, Vermeer, Van Gogh, Renoir, Picasso, Dali, Monet, Manet, Matisse, Miro, Modigliani, Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Mucha and Chagall. In Ferjo’s world, the laws of perspective and scale are given new meaning; space and time are manipulated in fantastical arrangements, giving the viewer a sense of falling into another dimension.

 

Whimsical, colorful and technically refined, Ferjo’s work is an exuberant mix of Cubism, Abstract Expressionism, Realism and Surrealism. Ferjo is a master painter with a style he can truly call his own. Ferjo’s work is sought by collectors and galleries worldwide.
