Sculpture by Diane Lublinski

 

 

 

Lighthouse ArtCenter Curator, Janeen Mason tells The Rickie Report, “Walk into any coffee shop in the country and you’ll see things that would make your Grandmother’s hair stand on end.  Tattoos, once an act of rebellion or a rite of passage are now sported by everyone from purple haired baristas to hip executives.  Those who can will pay as much as $20,000 for a whole sleeve.  Who is responsible for this renaissance of tribalism; for the common sighting of what used to be strictly taboo”?  

How??  What?? When did tattoos become fine art?

 

 

 

Detail by Ed Hardy

 

 

 

Ed Hardy knows.  He started tattooing neighborhood kids when he was eleven years old.  Granted he was using Maybelline eyeliner in those days, but that flame burned bright from the first time he saw hula girls dancing on the biceps of a WWII vet.  If there is a trail of ink that can answer these questions it leads back fifty-five years to 1965.  Ed Hardy, then a young man, turned down the offer of an advanced degree and a teaching position at Yale to open a tiny tattoo studio on his father-in-law’s dime.

 

 

 

Since then Ed Hardy’s iconic art has grown into a $52 billion brand with global sales of licensed goods on everything from lighters to leather jackets.  Today, he has two elite venues in the entire country that are exhibiting his fine art: one is the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco, while the other is the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, Florida.  Visitors to the ArtCenter’s show explore his original paintings after they cross the gallery’s threshold where a discreet sign states, “This exhibition may not be suitable for all audiences.”  Although the dynamic pieces by Ed Hardy are G-rated, this exhibition also hosts vintage original flash and memorabilia from crusty, long-gone tattooers like Sailor Jerry, Percy Waters and Mike Malone, whose work on display is not quite so conservative.

 

 

It’s a display of the legends.

 

Custom Detail by Ron Finch

 

 

 

 

Not all legends in this show are tattooers, however.  Ron Finch, recognized worldwide for his outrageous custom styled motorcycles is showing the best of his motorcycle art in the gallery along with Hardy.  Fifty other artists from around the country, all whose work is tattoo inspired, applied to this exhibition and the juried results are 2D, 3D, and photography that fill the bright open spaces with color and joy.

 

 

Meaningful life events commemorated by this permanent art are on living display October 17, when the Lighthouse ArtCenter presents the “Nearly” Nude Runway Show with fashion designer, Bosha Stone, featuring models wearing carefully crafted garments that expose their artistic tattoos.  Tickets are $50 in advance, limited seating.  The exhibition is generously sponsored by Douglas B. Andrews, Lucky Supply and Stephen Stone.

The public is invited to the Opening Reception at Bohemïa AG on Saturday, April 18th from 6 – 10 pm.  The SOLO Exhibit features artwork by  Award winning tattoo artist and photographer, Scott White.  He has created a series of photographs which explore tattoos as an art form and expression of identity.  By allowing his portraits to remain anonymous, Scott’s photographs compel the viewer to focus on the intricacies of the artwork itself. This extension of one’s personality through the lens of body art is a testament to self expression!

 

 

 

The opening night reception will also be host to two charities:  Hounds and Heroes program by Awesome Greyhound Adoptions, which trains retired greyhounds to be service dogs for veterans.  And Palm Beach Harvest, a non-profit agency which collects food from grocery stores, hotels, restaurants, and farms and oversees its distribution to various local places of need including homeless shelters, senior centers, churches, and soup kitchens.

For Emmanuel Gonzales, The “recognition factor” of his subjects reaffirms the identity and unique cultural perspective of a specific group while simultaneously establishing an  “otherness” with viewers outside of a given group. Cultural identity plays a large part in his bold work.  
Emmanuel Gonzales', "Lincoln"

Emmanuel Gonzales’, “Lincoln”

Emmanuel uses pencil, pastels, oil, acrylic, and watercolor to create movement and energy to bring intimacy to large-scale pieces with an attention to subtleties often refined through detailed pencil work.  His award-winning designs have been recognized and lauded as Emmanuel has been included in “Keys to the Cities” piano project and 2013 “Endangered species” exhibit- Wynnwood Art District- Art Basel. 
"Great Ape"  by Emmanuel Gonzales

He explores the past and present through realism and portraiture. “My body of work includes a growing retrospective of American icons, where each piece is presented as a fragment in a larger American patchwork”, he says.

 

"Malcom" by Emmanuel Gonzales

“Malcom” by Emmanuel Gonzales

 

 

“Individually, my subjects attempt to characterize the social climate at a given moment in history. They are influential, recognizable images; relevant within specific ethnic and social groups. Some subjects are foreign to others outside of a particular group or generation. Just as one group identifies emotionally with a particular image through a shared social lens, outsiders will experience these images differently.”

 

"Secession" by Emmanuel Gonzales

“Secession” by Emmanuel Gonzales

 

 
Emmanuel Gonzalez’ interest in art is life long.  He began entering State-wide art competitions in the 1990′s and has shown in galleries nation-wide.  Emmanuel’s work was included in the Art Palm Beach/Art Synergy exhibit at Continuum and can be found at OSGS in Northwood. 

 

 

 

"Sitting Bull" by Emmanuel Gonzales

Craig has been drawing since he can remember.  He tells us, “I decided early on that I would be an “Artist” and after doodling my way through high school I came to Florida to attend the Art Institute. After graduation I plunged into a varied list of artistic endeavors.”

 craig-mcinnis-contact

“’All things creative’ has been a credo that I live by, when deciding what projects to take on. I enjoy keeping my workload diverse to help expand my skill set. I have had the opportunity to make music, paint on many different surfaces, illustrate, play in Photoshop, create graphics and layouts, and most recently, apprentice as a tattoo artist. I love the challenge new artistic territory poses”, Craig explains.

 main-image

Craig is also proud to be Creative Director of Fright Nights at the South Florida Fairgrounds for the past 7 years.  He’s done, horror make-up, graphics / branding, set design, and his fair share of getting into character.

 

“My intent is to stay focused and to NEVER take my creative gifts for granted”.  For more information contact Craig at 561.389.4800  or visit     http://www.craigmcinnis.com.
