The TRIAD exhibitions (May, June and July 2012) present the work of 3 women artists from the Miami area.
“HOT TROPICS”, Mythology, and Nature’s Energy art open the 2nd month of the TRIAD Exhibition at VALMAR ART
TRIAD’s June exhibit features “Hot Tropics” paintings by artist, Karen Deilke.
The very breath of the tropics is sensuous: hot, deep, slow, filled with fragrance, bursting with color; filled with thorns which wound but are followed by healing, by Light, by sanctuary. Driven by the pulse of drums beating a throbbing rhythm that stirs the soul and fires the senses. It is the June of the Venus Transit, when the Rose Moon dances with the earth, inviting us to drink of her medicine and become powerful and vulnerable at the same time. As the poet Rumi said, â€˜Run from what is comfortable. Forget safety. Live where you fear to liveâ€¦unfold your own myth.â€™ Fall into the depth and color of this work and be drawn into the fantasy and delight that is the gift of the tropics.â€
The paintings in Hot Tropics are executed in brilliant color using acrylic on canvas. Karen lives and paints in Coconut Grove and draws from the beauty of her surroundings for her inspiration. She also runs the Coconut Grove Drum Circle, which will perform at the Hot Tropics opening at Valmar.
Fiber is the ultimate shape shifter. We wear it, sleep in it, eat it, spend it, decorate with it. Master weaver Pamela Palma manipulates it as impulsed by her muses into compelling works of art. Her current series is inspired by the recent Venus Transit.
Palma’s four large tapestries deliver the realms of mythology and mysticism into the sacred year 2012. Composed of her signature hand dyed yarns, she has created four extraordinary works of woven art in which traditional pattern weaving is elevated into thought provoking, esoteric masterpieces.
“Sharing the Magic of Nature” paintings and mixed media by Debra Cortese
Debra’s work is “…intended to share joyful, magical moments in nature and to gently expand the awareness of our incredibly awesome and nurturing planetâ€¦ our Mother Earth”.
She creates her art using photography, traditional and digital painting, individually, and in combinations. Cortese enhances and subdues the balance of light, contrast and colors on her subjects until she feels that the art is authentically conveying the joyful vibrations that sang to her during each encounter in nature.
