The Nature of Things (by Sylvain Denis)…
“It’s make me think about how things are, also there is nature element in my images and Israel sculptures.  It is also about the way things are or can be represented, Niko’s drawing are exaggerated version of people shape and anatomy and I feel like it can be a true reality of their look. Barry painting have a deeper meaning about people innerself and sole, good or bad it is nature of this world.

This event will have 4 artist:

  • Stone sculptures by Israel Isi Ghelman
  • Photography, by me Sylvain Denis
  • Drawings by NikoYulis
  • Paintings by Barry Gross

About The Curator:

Sylvain Denis is a resident photographer and curator born and raised in Montreal, Canada. Currently residing in Fort Lauderdale where he works as a commercial freelance https://www.acheterviagrafr24.com/achat-viagra/ photographer. Sylvain started his interest in photography at a young age influenced by his own experience as a young model for a fitness publication based in New York City. Since 1994 Sylvain has captured the American Southwest landscape; this collection will be showcased during the exhibition here in 1310 Gallery.

This collection spans a 20-year career sampling his time across the United States from Antelope Canyon, a sandstone canyon carved from flash floods to Monument Valley on the edge of Utah. The American Landscape is constantly basked in hues and waves of light, which change every few minutes, making it probably one of the most challenging places to photograph.

Sylvain’s camera of choice is a medium format film camera, known for their larger size negatives that are transferred into digital files through the process of Drum scanning, which give the highest image resolution possible. Those images are then printed on to metallic paper compressed between polished plexi-glass for their superior glossy and finished look.

Bio of Israel Ghelman:

I studied sculpture, ceramic and drawing in Caracas, Venezuela. In Florida, clay in the Fire and Mud Studio, sculpture in Broward College and work as a Sculpture Lab Assistant.  Participated in group shows in Broward and Palm Beach.  Took part in the Mosan art symposium in South Korea, where I carved a monumental piece in granite for the Museum.
At this moment in my life I decided to sculpt in stone. I take pleasure in the physical contact with the rocks, could be because I love the mountains and life outdoors or for some other reason but they attract me… I think that, in some way, they are sculptures in their natural state… They are part of nature and I analyze their origin, where they “grow” and to which “family” they belong. I am doing it for the last six years, and love to work on them, trying to bring out what they would like to express.

I like to incorporate details and organic forms, but it is essentially abstract art. Passionate about the three-dimensionality of sculpture, in my newest pieces I introduced the rotation on a pin to have a 360 degrees view.  Showing off my sculpture, I intend to provoke intellectual and emotional enjoyment in the viewer of my work.

Bio of Barry Gross:
Artist Barry Gross is a figurative/surreal realistic painter . He primarily works in oils on Belgium linen and delves into mixed media as an under painting and works the painting up with oil. Barry also does drawings using graphite/charcoal and oil sticks on hand tinted Asian rice papers. Barry is in the collections of Malcolm Forbes of Forbes Magazine, Elton John,
Coca Cola.

Resilience: Survive. Grow. Thrive. – Exhibit opening

Posted on 13 May 2014 by Niki lopez

Interactive arts event brings Resilience to Foster Care Youth 


Artists:
Andrew Innerarity
Terri Meredith
Patr
Dennica Pearl Worrell

Collaborators:
1310 Gallery
Be Your Own Answer
Cameras For Kids Foundation
Voices for Children of Broward County
Prizm Art Fair
Supreme Esteem, Inc.

FORT LAUDERDALE – When you ask Neri Street, a community advocate and public speaker, what the word “resilience” means, she lights up. “It’s the concept that will make our community sustainable, address changing job markets, and how we teach the next generation of youth,” she says. “Innovation lights a spark, but resilience keeps the fire burning.”

On Saturday, May 17, Street curates an interactive arts and storytelling experience designed to immerse the audience into Resillence. That is the theme of 1310 Gallery’s 6th Annual May Arts Extravaganza. Every May since 2009, Street has collaborated with artists to raise awareness for causes supporting children and families. e.

“Resilience is critical for everyone, even for people whose lifestyle appears to be easy,” says Andrew Innerarity, an internationally acclaimed photojournalist whose work will be displayed at the event. “No one gets a completely easy path.”

That night, the event will feature 2-dimensional artists pushing the envelope on their work, and inspired performance. It will also feature short films (comedy, drama and experimental) on resilience, and the audience may choose to participate in “An Exercise in Resilience”. A portion of proceeds from any sales that evening supports Cameras for Kids, an innovative program that builds resilience in Broward’s foster care teens.

Betsey Chesler launched Cameras for Kids after volunteering with orphanages in South Africa. She saw how empowered vulnerable teens were behind a camera, and saw the same needs right here at home. Her program is now across the US and Canada. Funds go towards purchasing a basic point and shoot camera, memory cards, photography printing, framing, and shooting trips. “Photography opens a door that allows the kids to see their own potential,” says Chesler, “and it gives them an innovative skill set.”

Cameras for Kids works locally in partnership with Voices for Children and HANDY (Helping Abused Neglected Disadvantaged Youth), but they need community investment to continue. Street and Chesler have come together to raise the funds to sustain the program. The teens’ photography, and other select pieces at the event, will be on sale to support the program—which gives the youth a direct experience in entrepreneurship.

Tracing the Imaginary Art Opening

Posted on 16 October 2013 by Niki lopez

https://www.facebook.com/events/611016248941423/
The exhibit opening Saturday October 19, 2013 at 1310 Gallery Sailboat Bend Artist Lofts reflects on the work of daughter and mother. The exhibit, “Tracing the Imaginary” focuses on the artwork of daughter and mother. Both women share a similar trajectory starting their carrier as a raw artist. Sonia Baez-Hernandez after a decade of working in art and sociology got a MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Francisca Hernandez began doing ceramic after retired. In 1998 Hernandez began to develop her drawings and mastering skill.

Hernandez’s drawings transport the audience to imaginary gardens, symbolism, and fragmentation of multiple spaces. In contrast, Baez-Hernandez experiments with a realm of micros organic or anthropomorphic forms that emerge as part of a dialogue between surrealistic overtones, and gestural marking. The exhibition includes two-dimensional pieces, installation art, found –object assemblages, and a performance by Baez-Hernandez. Some of their artworks transform the pitch of illness into artistic expressions and emanate therapeutic value.

“ROUGH & TUMBLE” Art Exhibition–Curated by Lisa Rockford

Posted on 20 August 2013 by Lisa Rockford

ROUGH-TUMBLE-PC-8x12-FLAT copy“ROUGH & TUMBLE” Opening with FAT Village Art Walk
The Projects Exhibition space in Fat Village Arts District
523 NW 1st Ave, Ft Lauderdale, FL 33301

First View/ArtWalk: August 31, 7-10pm
Second Reception/ArtWalk: September 28, 7-10 pm
Closing Reception & ART FALLOUT Event: October 5th, 5-9pm.
Admission: Free & Open to the Public

Artists from South Florida and beyond will occupy an 8000 square foot warehouse and alternative exhibition space, creating new works that hang from the rafters, conform to, and are inspired by the unique site. Installation art, mixed media, Sculpture, Video art, and Interactive works are included.

29 artists in the exhibition were selected through a part juried, part invitational process. The artists are linked by their fresh approaches to the ROUGH & TUMBLE theme. Selected artists were asked to respond to the following definitions; ROUGH: “characterized by violent, random, disorderly action and struggles, unrestrained, marked by bursts of destructive force or intense activity,” and TUMBLE: “an unorganized collection or mixture of various things, described as Raw, Textured, Volatile, and/or Arbitrary, Hybrid forms.”

New artworks, custom-made for the site, will be unveiled for the first time by half of the artists, including Gabrielle Wood, Erman, Stacy Streeter, Cara McKinley, Martin Casuso, and Kerry Phillips.
Upon entering the rollback doors to the warehouse, visitors will be drawn to the enticing artworks of Clara Varas, Jee Park, and Michael Covello.
Jee_Park-Untitled -1
The forceful, yet calculated brushstrokes of Clara Varas, graduate of The School of Visual Arts New York, are an exploration of coastal cities and their disappearing natural habitats, issues concerning displacement, migration and identity. Scratches, marks and streaks are combined with hidden images and well-placed additions of collage and unidentified globular substances.
Clara Varas, "Backwash Number Two"
In the artists’ own words: “Much of my work is done on cut, torn or crumbled paper using collage and assemblage as a way to explore and blur the lines between sculpture, painting, drawing and installation. I seldom exhibit my work the same way twice since I never really consider a piece finished, but rather an evolving thing which is constantly and spontaneously reacting to its immediate surroundings.
Michael Covello, a graduate student at the University of South Florida, is also influenced by his surrounding landscape. His work combines 2-dimensional abstractions with found objects that deliver a commanding physicality as they tumble from the painting onto the floor.
Michael Covello, "In the weeds"

Michael’s elegiac statement describes the connection between his inspiration and creations: “My childhood was a rupture within the sparkling tapestry of suburbia. Surrounded by an emerald patchwork of manicured estates, the bedraggled household of my upbringing sat within this affluent community as an eyesore. The malignant tones of an overgrowth of weeds, the sour grime of an abandoned swimming pool, the vulgar olive-toned shards of a discarded bottle; these characterized my immediate landscape. And from this early age I realized that this space was marked, as was I, as a product of domestic disturbance, socio-economic inferiority, psychological deterioration, and neglect. This reality, along with the constant effort of my family to escape our circumstance, became two schematics through which I understood the world. I work in the studio the same way I navigate the memory of that environment from my childhood. My paintings are born out of the unkempt, where things aren’t clean or easy. Things are messy. They interrupt themselves. They fall apart. They are salvaged and repurposed. Gestures pile up like dirty dishes in the sink. Colors work paycheck to paycheck. And in the dense spaces I create, formal elements need to work hard if they are going to succeed; otherwise they get swallowed up into the humming dissonance.” His 20 foot wide installation will be newly birthed for this exhibit.
Viewers will next be confronted by a life-size tank; a kinetic sculpture created by Ryan Farrell. This ambitious 25 foot sculpture, a replica of the Abrams tank, is characteristic of his process, using recycled materials derived from transportation vehicles; in this case, it is primarily made of bicycle parts. The unit is designed to be operated by 3 live performers.
Other imposing works include six artworks that hang 19 feet down from the rafters of the vaulted ceiling. Artist Randy Burman was the first to install “Fever In The Funk House,” made of linear elements that tumble down in an orderly configuration. The components, which have now been uniformly pruned, were collected or found by the wayside.

Kerry Phillips, who lovingly devotes her time to re-purposing discarded objects and transforming them into sculpture, will also be creating an installation from ceiling to floor, using only items that were found on, or around the site of the warehouse.
Florida natives Remy Bordas & Marisa Finos were inspired by the tumultuous nature of the James River in Virginia, where they recently moved, because according to the artists, it is the “site of many historic (often brutal) events in our nation’s early history, and still continues to serve as a site of transition and transformation–influencing lives across the entire state of Virginia.” “Through James” is a sound and video installation focused on abstracting the experience of approaching the James River when it is at its roughest. For this exhibit, the artists are creating a 12 foot “tunnel” in which viewers will symbolically cross through the river. Proposed installation by Remy Bordas and Marisa_Finos
Viewers can also interact with artworks by Paula Kolek, Matthew Falvey, and Andres Ramirez. Andres Ramirez’s video and fabric installation, “La luz y la carne” is another sort of tunnel, in this case representing stretched skin. He allows participants to walk into the fabric structure as “they too become part of the fetish, by pushing and pulling the fabric and becoming one with the actions happening in the video. “

Visitors will be also simultaneously repulsed and attracted to fleshy, visceral works of Miranda Burns, Rosemarie Romero, Gabrielle Wood, and Caroline Collette, which involve pre-chewed gum, partially concealed porn and “muff” magazines, and fleshy silicone, embedded with human hair.
Other artists like Stephanie Cafcules and Paul McClelland were selected for their use of rough or raw materials. Stephanie Cafcules is interested in seeing how far she can push the physical properties of her chosen material, allowing for unexpected and uncontrolled outcomes. Stephanie will be creating a colossal installation from scavenged polystyrene, which has been manipulated and transformed with spray paint and acetone to possess an intriguing rock-like, textured surface.

Paul McClelland’s installation “GW Series” involves a cluster of disembodied George Washington heads, made of cast cement, worked over with a decayed and partially eaten surface. The heads will “bloom” and morph throughout the course of the exhibit, as they grow a mossy green casing. Paul’s second work, “Stress Test,” a mechanical, kinetic sculpture that involves a chisel being hammered into a cement head, will dominate the vast space with the reverberating sound of metal hitting metal. Paul describes “Stress Test” as “a situational experience that will create an atmosphere of annoying repetition not unlike a water torture.”

The exhibition is housed within “The Projects North,” in FAT Village ARTS District, the leading exhibition space for monthly art walks in Fort Lauderdale. There will be two public receptions, on Aug. 31 & Sept. 28, as part of the monthly (4th Saturday) art walk in FAT Village, which spans 4 square blocks and is populated with artist’s studios, galleries & other creative businesses.
