“Key Lime Pier” by  Kathryn Morlock

 

 

 

Kathryn loves to travel and take photographs of scenes or people she might like to paint. Her favorite subjects are beaches, tropical landscapes, unusual or historic buildings and people in interesting places. There’s always a certain photo that inspires her to create a painting.

“Wildfire” by Joseph Marcou

Joseph Marcou was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. His mother was a teacher and a talented artist, so art was always a part of his life. He began drawing and making things at an early age. His parents died young and at 16 he moved to Mexico with his uncle who was a comptroller of a U.S. Commission. One night while at a concert he sketched the pianist. He showed it to his uncle’s friend, the artist Enrique Asunsolo, who realized his talent and suggested that Joe make art his career. This was his defining moment.

“Red Poppy” by Joseph Marcou

Throughout his long design career, Joe continued fine art painting for himself. When he finally retired from the corporate world , he was able to turn to the sheer enjoyment of creating art full time. He is particularly well known for his extraordinary floral paintings, capturing their essence with drama and unusual style. His paintings are in many private national and international collections. He has been represented by the Farnsworth Gallery and exhibits his work in many outdoor art fairs.  Joe says he is inspired by the resilience of nature and what its limitless imagination and whimsy creates.

Maria tells The Rickie Report, “I started painting early in life, using first oil as a way of expression, followed by acrylic and mixed media. My academic formation has been completed with many workshops. I use brushes and sometimes the knife. My style, once classic and realistic has been much influenced by impressionism. In my constant evolution, abstract and expressionism have opened a new horizon and they are now part of my creative path”.

“Nature has always been a source of inspiration, which since my childhood has brought me much joy. It’s limitless forms, colours, sizes, textures and changing lights, inspire and thrill me. Born in Spain I have shared my life between that country, Canada and the U.S. and this has very much influenced my work. Sometimes I add the human shape in movement. Subject variety is important to my creative soul and botanicals add color to my palette. I want to transmit the joy I feel in my creations and I invite the follower to use his imagination to share with me this sensation of harmony and beauty, produced by art”.

Born in Madrid, Spain, Maria studied Fine Arts and foreign languages and started painting at fifteen. In Canada since 1966, she has completed courses in Fashion Design, Jewelry making and Interior Design. She has also worked in the fashion industry and successfully created a jewelry design and manufacturing company. Her creations have been distributed across Canada and the United States and her work has been often mentioned in specialized, as well as in popular magazines.

A classic and realistic artist by formation, Maria is influenced by impressionism, using the brush as well as the spatula. She likes variety and abstract is part of her world now. Her love for nature is reflected in her work, where different shapes, textures and light are her sources of inspiration, trying to capture the feeling created by a particular moment in time and space. Her life is shared between Canada, Spain and the United States, which, no doubt influences her work. Her art has been commented upon and published in newspapers and magazines. She has been part of numerous exhibitions, Solo and Group. Honourable mention and a member of various associations, her paintings are found in England, Spain, Canada and the United States. Several of her works are reproduced and distributed by Ëditions Bégin of Québec.

"Jupiter Lighthouse" by Oscar Rojas

“Jupiter Lighthouse” by Oscar Rojas

Oscar Rojas has been painting for as long as he can remember. His paintings are classical and dynamic. He loves depicting the beautiful and lush Florida landscape and plants on large spectacular canvases. He has a portrait series of well know tennis players and a number of large horse paintings which he likes to paint without a model. Each work of art flows and there are differences between his paintings because he does not seek a style.

 

"Bamboo" by Oscar Rojas

“Bamboo” by Oscar Rojas

For Oscar, painting is not an objective, it is to give life. He says, “ the day you are satisfied means that you have successfully dominated the art and have taken a path that was to your liking and comfort. There is an endless search in the domain of colors and each work of art is different from the previous one. They are like people each totally different and they speak for themselves”. Oscar has no set goals…it is an endless story.

Wellington Art Society Features Emmanuel Gonzales’ Art at Whole Foods Gallery

The event is co-hosted by Whole Foods  and WAS with live music, delicious appetizers and wine. Emmanuel explores the past and the present through realism and portraiture depicting American icons that are influential, recognizable images. Some are relevant to specific ethnic and social groups and viewers will experience these images differently, depending on their emotional and social perceptions. He works in pencil, pastels, oils, acrylic and watercolor to create movement and energy to bring intimacy to large scale pieces.  The Rickie Report gives you some sneak peeks here.

Emmanuel explores the past and present through realism and portraiture. His body of work includes a growing retrospective of American icons, where each piece is presented as a fragment in a larger American patchwork. He tells The Rickie Report, “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. The “recognition factor” of my subjects reaffirms the identity and unique cultural perspective of a specific group while simultaneously establishing an ”otherness” in viewers outside of a given group. I use pencil, pastels, oil, 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”.
