Ilene Adams works in both mixed media painting and in photography. Her paintings are a mixture of various mediums including photo transfers, plaster, gold leaf and thread. She often uses vintage family photos or old collectable postcards and the colors are often muted. Her photos, on the other hard, are bold, bright colors, pushing the limits on saturation and manipulating reality.

Ilene says about her art, “The artists that influenced me the most are Robert Rauschenberg and Maxfield Parish. Rauschenberg’s influence is apparent in my paintings that incorporate paint, collage, photographic images and artifacts. They evoke a feeling of nostalgia or of imaginary places. My photographs deal mostly with nature, but nature through an intense filter.  Images are put under a microscope and colors are heightened. Ordinary images are enhanced to create painterly new images that leave the viewer wondering if they are paintings or photographs? Abstract or realistic?”

Northwood Village Mural Project

Expands to OSGS Gallery!

This Mural at OSGS by Tiffany is part of the Northwood Village Mural Project but was produced solely by the owners of OSGS Gallery (as opposed to the initial murals funded by the CRA). Tiffany has painted murals in other Palm Beach County locations (Downtown Lake Worth at Dave’s Last Resort) as well.

 

 

The Northwood Village Mural Project is now in the hands of the Village Merchants and future growth will depend on merchant follow-through, sponsorships, and overall exposure to generate Northwood Village as a Mural Destination. Murals projects have thrived in many cities and create a fabulous environment for all to enjoy.
