IRIS

DOCUMENTARY ON THE

FASHION ICON

Iris Apfel in IRIS, a Magnolia Pictures release. Photo courtesy of Magnolia Pictures

T

he fashion icon and tastemaker, Iris Apfel, has a joie de vivre, creative drive, and spunk that could easily outwit anyone half her age. The self proclaimed ‘oldest living teenager’ has now become the subject of an upcoming film, aptly named, IRIS. IRIS pairs legendary 87-year-old documentarian Albert Maysles with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an out-sized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity and how, even in Iris’ dotage, a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. IRIS portrays a singular woman who reminds us that dressing, and indeed life, is nothing but an experiment. Despite the abundance of glamour in her current life, she continues to embrace the values and work ethic established during a middle-class Queens upbringing during the Great Depression. “I feel lucky to be working. If you’re lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows.”

restore the fabrics of most major museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as the White House. As they traveled the world, Iris became a dogged collector of textiles she transformed into clothing and artifacts she turned into jewelry. Iris was increasingly admired for her fearless and original style — while other women were dressing in headto-toe designers, Iris combined haute couture tops with pants fashioned from church vestments and tribal jewelry. She mixed designer pieces with flea market finds, transforming dressing to improvised artistic expression.

“MORE IS MORE AND LESS IS A BORE”

After studying fine arts at New York University, Iris landed her first full-time job at Women’s Wear Daily, eventually going on to apprentice with interior designer Elinor Johnson, and then beginning her own interior design business. In 1948, she married Carl Apfel, an advertising executive, and together they founded Old World Weavers, manufacturing fabrics Iris imagined but could not find for her many design projects. From 1948 until 1992, Carl and Iris helped SPRING 2015

The show, “Iris Apfel, Rare Bird of Fashion,” showcasing Iris’s irreverent style, became a runaway hit and traveled the country making Iris, at age of 87, a self-described “geriatric starlet.” Iris’s broad appeal landed her on the pages of publications as diverse as European editions of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar as well as PAPER and Dazed and Confused. Along the way, becoming a favorite model of Bruce Weber. She appeared in Coach Ads, designed a sell-out line for MAC Cosmetics and now sells clothing and accessories on HSN. She is a visiting professor of School of Human Ecology at The University of Texas, where selected students join her annually for a week long tour of the fashion industry that involves every aspect of the business.

-IRIS APFEL

Iris Barrel Apfel was born August 29, 1921 in Astoria, Queens, to Sadye Barrel, a lawyer and fashion boutique owner, and importer Samuel Barrel. From the time she was a child, individual style in all of its iterations was Iris’s passion. She followed her father to jobs at Elsie de Wolfe’s legendary interior design studio and helped her mother style store windows.

In 2005, the Metropolitan Museum approached Iris about sharing her collections.

GIRL NOTICED

South Florida artist and activist shares proactive female message around the country, one mural at a time.

Boca Raton artist, Laurence Gartel, dubbed the ‘Father of the Digital Art Movement’ is known for giving life to the artistry of digital media. One of his most well known pieces of artwork, Absolut Gartel, was commissioned for the Absolut Vodka campaign giving him international success. Now the artist has done it again! Gartel was the official artist of the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards- creating a GRAMMY statue in his signature style. “We are thrilled to have Laurence Gartel create our official GRAMMY Awards artwork as he brought a truly visual element to the iconic GRAMMY statuette” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. “His work provides a fitting nod to the vibrancy of the artists, musicians, and creative professionals who we’ll honor at the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards.”

BLING FLING!

South Florida artist, Lori Pratico, wants you to stop…and take notice. Her project, Girl Noticed, is a nationwide project that focuses on the role of ‘the female’ in society. Lori has teamed up with Elizabeth San Juan, co-owner and co-founder of Gallery 2014 and photographer, to travel around the country creating large-scale charcoal murals of females chosen from that area. Charcoal? Murals? Outside?! Yep, you read that correctly. Ya’ll know charcoal fades. That is the point. Like the temporary charcoal murals that Lori will create, we have a limited time to notice and appreciate the females all around us, especially the young women, many of whom are at a critical point in their lives when being noticed for their positive qualities could not be more important.

Be dazzled! As part of Delray Beach Center for the Arts’ 25th Anniversary celebration, the Cornell Museum of Art invites you to a party like no other! BLING FLING promises an evening Chanel, mixed media with of dazzling art, sparkling cocktails, light bites Swarovski crystals by and a chance to meet some of the artists Jonathan Stein participating in the current bling-themed exhibits.

“Earth is our home. We only have one and if we mess this up… where do we go next? We don’t have another earth right next to us, just in case we lose this one,” says Hippocrates Polemis, an eight-year-old featured in SAVING MY TOMORROW. In a unique partnership, HBO and the American Museum of Natural History present SAVING MY TOMORROW, a four-part series beginning on Earth Day, April 22, exclusively on HBO. From the children who will inherit the planet comes a collection of songs, activism and heartfelt tips for protecting the earth. Kids share their thoughts on subjects ranging from endangered animals to climate change, while exploring stories with the museum’s scientists about the plants and animals that are affected by a changing earth. A lyrical mix of science, animation and music, SAVING MY TOMORROW celebrates the wonders of the natural world and is a call from kids to kids to help take care of the planet. The special and the series feature readings by Alan Cumming, Tina Fey, Liam Neeson, Susan Sarandon, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Jeffrey Wright and more, alongside an appearance by Pharrell Williams and musical performances by Lennon & Maisy, Ziggy Marley, Elizabeth Mitchell, Jason Mraz, Willie Nelson, Karen O, Pete Seeger, They Might Be Giants and Dan Zanes.

Futter, president of the American Museum of Natural History. “Our children will inherit the planet, so it is only fitting that their thoughts, concerns and inherent love of nature be part of the larger conservation discussion.” “This show is for the children, because tomorrow belongs to them,” comments Sheila Nevins, president, HBO Documentary Films. “Their passion will make the difference in saving our planet.” As 12-year-old Zoe says, “The adults clearly aren’t doing enough to stop this, so we have to take it into our own hands.” SAVING MY TOMORROW is a copresentation of HBO Documentary Films and the American Museum of Natural History; directed and produced by Amy Schatz; produced by Beth Aala; edited by Tom Patterson; supervising producer, Lisa Heller; executive producer, Sheila Nevins.

MiamiFF has been around since 1983, bringing directors, actors, and filmmakers, doing everything from documentaries to experimental films, to the spotlight. Some of these talented individuals are known well enough to recognize on the big screen, but for others, this is their big break. With annual attendance of approximately 70,000 people from all over the world and from all walks of life, it has secured its place as a global festival.

The Film Society of Miami started it all, but it was succeeded by Florida International University up until 2003. Today, Miami-Dade College is responsible for growing and expanding the festival to the event that it stands as today. The original mission was to “bridge cultural understanding and encourage artistic development and excellence by provoking thought through film”. Now, heading into the 33rd annual edition the festival features filmmakers from over 60 countries.

This year, the 10 day festival will be happening from March 6th to the 15th, but there are special events occurring before and after the official festival dates. The range of films, from culinary to Cubaninspired, will be sure to keep you entertained, so join in on the fun while history is made.

KAZILLA

As one of the top street artists that represent MIA, internationally renowned – KAZILLA is famous for creating true ‘performance art’. Painting live murals and works of art in the spotlight for a myriad of audiences, such as leading recording artists and their masses of onlookers, museums, exclusive events, major brands, print and TV. To most it would be a bit unnerving, asked to make a masterpiece in front of hundreds, sometimes thousands of eyes, all watching your every move and mistake. Using the pressure and constant critique to her advantage, Kazilla has mastered the art of “free hand”, “working your mistakes, instead of your mistakes working you”, “speed painting” and the “minute masterpiece”. PHOTO CREDIT: ALL ART © KAZILLA

SPRING 2015


A native of New Mexico, Kazilla currently resides and works from her studio/gallery in Miami, FL. After moving to the east coast in 2007, her work transcended street art, and combined her two styles of fine art and graffiti to create an edgy, colorful clash of two very different worlds. Often using various mediums to create her distinctive style, there is always a level of experimentation in every piece, keeping the work fresh and dynamic. Organic themes infused with feminine figures, surreal landscapes, geometric patterns and vibrant colors create a visual feast for the eyes.

PHOTO CREDIT: © JCM Photography

Although Kazilla brightens the Miami landscape with murals and street art almost daily, she is also a regular globe trotter – hitting the streets the world over to leave her mark, and her art. In addition to creating cutting edge street art, Kazilla also paints live at events for performers such as Wu-Tang Clan, The Marleys, Chaka Khan and Timbaland, and for brands like Adidas, Converse, Guess, Whole Foods, Oxygen Network, & Perrier to name a few. Her fine art endeavors include establishments such as the Museum of Art, both in Ft. Lauderdale and Coral Gables, Miami MOMA, and galleries in NYC, LA, DC, & Dubai. In her off hours she also works as a performance artist, designer, muralist, photographer, producer, musician, philanthropist, and consultant.

ARTIN’ WITH THE MUSE

Do-it-Yourself

CUSTOM CARDBOARD CUFFS

I

was watching Advanced Style for the third or fourth time when it dawned on me- I need to do a DIY on paper-towel bracelets inspired by Debra Rapoport. (Seriously, Google her…she is amazing!) Because, well, basically because I want to be her, or Iris Apfel, when I grow up (eyes look off into the distance...sigh). Rather than break the bank, I figured I should try to make some pieces of my own. Plus, I kinda like the earth. I live here. So do you. Let’s start recycling!

MATERIALS • Paper Towel Roll or 1-2 toilet paper rolls.

CUFF BRACELET

STEP-BY-STEP:

• Glue (I used several different types, tacky glue, Modge Podge and a heavy duty glue)

1.Cut a vertical slit in the paper towel roll or toilet paper roll

• Rubber bands

2.Flatten out slightly

• Pin Backs • Gems

3.Measure two sets of two inch pieces (or whatever thickness you want for your bracelet)

• A few bottles from around the house, about the size of your wrist.

4.Cut out the strips

• Acrylic Paint

5.Glue together.

•Misc. collage materials and embellishments

6.The pieces will still have the ‘curve’… this is a good thing. Place the pieces around some type of bottle, just a little bit larger than the size of your wrist. 7.Secure with rubber bands and let it dry. It’s best if you let it dry for several hours or overnight. 8.Take off the rubber bands and remove from bottle. The pieces should be stuck together…now for the fun! 9.Paint the bracelet. 10.Embellish!

MORE HUMAN THAN HUMAN

THE HYPER-REALISTIC WORKS OF

KAZUHIRO TSUJI

BY JESSIE PRUGH

ARTHIVEMAGAZINE.COM

J

apanese born contemporary sculptor Kazuhiro Tsuji’s larger than life tributes to famous personalities have been shocking audiences around the globe. His attention to detail and meticulous rendering of his work would make Philip K. Dick, author of Blade Runner, proud. “More human than human” could definitely be Tsuji’s motto. I spoke with Tsuji about his work and inspirations, getting a small glimpse into the artist’s facinating world.

ART HIVE: You have had a very prolific career spanning two decades, working as a special effects makeup artist, and even creating one of Japan’s first companies of its kind, Makeup and Effects Unlimited. What made you quit the film industry and transition into your fine arts career as a sculptor? KAZUHIRO TSUJI: In 2002, I made a portrait sculpture for my mentor Dick Smith. It was for his 80 years old birthday. He was very touched and moved by it. And when I showed it to the public, I realized how powerful and inspiring [it was] to the viewers. I love to inspire people. It took a while to make a transition but I realized that it is much more rewarding and fulfilling than any film job I have ever worked on. And I realized I should live rest of my life for the better reason. That made me change my career. ART HIVE: Who are some creative people you admire? KAZU: There are many people to list. Bernini, Michelangelo, etc…and living ones too. ART HIVE: How do you choose the subjects you want to sculpt? KAZU: It is timing and what is going on in my life at that time. Everyone I sculpt, based on different reasons. ART HIVE: On the average, how long do one of your large sculptures take to create? KAZU: Once I set the idea, it will take about three to five months. ART HIVE: The sizes of your works are magnificent! What made you want to work in such large scales? KAZU: It is about intimacy, intimidation and inspiration. I wanted to express that presence and existence. ART HIVE: Can you give us a hint about any upcoming projects you have? KAZU: No I cannot, you will see someday. ART HIVE: Is there a piece of advice you could give a creative person just starting out in their career? KAZU: It is not a piece but these are things I believe these days. Believe in your own ability. Don’t compare yourself with others. You need to work hard for your goal, it is not easy to achieve.

‘Kazuhiro Tsuji is a contemporary hyperrealist sculptor living and working in Los Angeles. After working 25 years as a special effects makeup artist in Hollywood, Kazu decisively shifted focus in 2008, dedicating himself full time to fine art sculpture. Using resin, platinum silicone, and many other materials, Kazu constructs three-dimensional portraits in a scale two times life size.’ Photos courtesy of © KazuhiroTsuji

CAL AL JOKERS Interview by Angela Yungk

Hidden camera practical joke shows have always had a place in the TV landscape. While many fall flat, NY natives, Joe Gatto, James “Murr” Murray, Brian “Q” Quinn and Sal Vulcano, are four longtime best friends who put their own unique twist on the genre. Now in it’s fourth season, Impractical Jokers, where the guys dare each other stealthly through a microphone and earpiece to prank the unsuspecting public, is hillarious, awkward and often uncomfortable. What’s the hook? They’re finding out the details of the prank the moment they are performing it on the strangers. ARTHIVEMAGAZINE.COM

35


ART HIVE: What made you think that you would all perform well together on stage when you started your improv group The Tenderloins? MURR: You know we performed improv in high school together. We performed together, did shows together and then after college, it was kind of natural, we all gravitated back and wanted to continue doing comedy. So we formed The Tenderloins and rehearsed for a long time. Actually, Joe and I were just watching a video of one of our old rehearsals, from the year 2000, and I had a lot of hair. Joe was very skinny, Sal looked like a baby, it was funny! We’ve always just been best friends and enjoyed making each other laugh. We did it in high school and now that carries over to now, what we do on Jokers. ART HIVE: It’s clear you have great chemistry! What made you want to take your improv group to the next level onto TV? JOE: We wanted to do something that was right for us. We tried a couple of times at pilots that didn’t go to series that were a little more scripted. So we decided we needed a format that worked for us and what works for four best friends is just messing with each other and making each other laugh so that’s how we found the format for Impractical Jokers. MURR: We wanted to create a show that put our friendship on display for America to see and that was our idea. Something that really puts our friendship first, and people can see what makes us tick and how we can make each other laugh. ART HIVE: That’s smart to do it in a way that comes naturally. JOE: We’re all so brilliant! [laughing] ART HIVE: Out of curiosity, are you guys together all the time when you’re not filming? SAL: Actually, surprisingly we are. We are with each other I think, 28 days a month! When I’m alone walking in the streets and someone says, “Hey, where are the other guys?” I just want to be like, “Umm, we don’t just follow each other everywhere!” But actually we kind of really do. ART HIVE: Where do you come up with your show ideas for the skits on Impractical Jokers? JOE: Well again, were brilliant [laughing]. We basically hang out in the office with our writing team and throw around ideas and see what sticks. It’s very collaborative. ART HIVE: That’s awesome! Now that you’re currently in the 4th season and you’re also touring around the world with the truTV Impractical Jokers featuring- The Tenderloins, what do you have in store for the future? MURR: We are working on creating an Impractical Jokers movie, that we are very excited about, we are hoping to shoot that next year. This January we have an all new hour and a half live show. We’re touring the country again.

“WE DEFINITELY HAD A LOT OF BUMPS IN THE ROAD ALONG THE WAY, IT REALLY HELPED COMING UP WITH YOUR FRIENDS BECAUSE YOU KEEP EACH OTHER MOTIVATED.”


ART HIVE: I’ve heard in a previous interview that Joe said, “It took 15 years for us to become an overnight success.” Is there one piece of advice that each of you could share about achieving success? JOE: We’ve definitely had a lot of bumps in the road along the way, it really helped coming up with your friends because you keep each other motivated. I think that was a big perk that we had. I always like to try to be creative with people. You’ve got someone to back you up and not do it on your own. That was the good thing about doing it together, I think. SAL: March 4th, 2000 was our first show ever and before we ever went on stage we rehearsed three times a week for six months. JOE: Yeah in my mom’s basement. SAL: Yeah, no kidding! On the weekend we would record our rehearsals on a camcorder and on the third rehearsal day we would watch the two rehearsals and give notes. We took it very seriously and I’ll tell you what, if you go back and watch our first show on March 4th, 2000, the rehearsals didn’t work out too well. When we first started performing live we were in small theaters in New York and our crowds were anywhere from zero to fifty people. Sometimes only a few people would show up and that was a unique experience. MURR: We tell a story on stage when we perform live. But there was one show we did years ago and it was only a twenty person theatre and only two people showed up to see us perform. We did the show anyway and it was tough to get through but that’s what you do and the lesson that we learned and how it relates to your original question was, just don’t stop. Just keep going no matter what. We have been told ‘NO’ so many times in our career, but it didn’t keep us from trying to find someone that would finally said ‘yes’. JOE: And also just be honest with yourself because not everybody is made for it. Some people just out right suck, and aren’t funny. SAL: They need loved ones to tell them to go into accounting or something. MURR: Funny thing is that Joe was an accountant for years!

To keep up with the Impractical Jokers, watch them on Thursdays @10pm truTV

INSPIRATION

ART DRONE

Job (in)Security By Jonathan Hunt

We’ve all gotten the lecture: Do your homework, go to college, get good grades, earn a degree, get a job with benefits, show up to work on time, be a team player, kiss your boss’ ass and then you will get— laid off. Huh? Yeh, welcome to 2015…

I have written before about the whole “starving artist” thing. The reality is that when a young artist is striving to find their artistic voice, they are often also struggling emotionally and monetarily. It is this conflict that earns them “street cred” from the public and their peers alike. But ironically, when an artist achieves professional status (i.e. an illustrator or designer or successful gallery painter) then suddenly they are not considered “true artists” anymore, but lowly art machines who have sold out to The Man. Yet what about those artists and musicians who can’t quite seem to catch that elusive Big Break? Well, (says my hypothetical nay-sayer) why dontcha stop your bellyaching and get a cushy teaching job? Now there’s a good idea— 30 years ago. It used to be true that teaching could be a safe fall-back career: Stable employment where one could earn money and benefits while doing art on the side. Not anymore, kids. Tenure at the university level is quickly disappearing as full time faculty are laid off and replaced by adjunct instructors who get paid far less and receive no benefits. Since these part-time professors have to work multiple jobs to make enough money to support their families, they can rarely attend departmental meetings or school-sponsored events. This lack of involvement, low pay and the uncertainty of their semester-to-semester contracts creates an even greater feeling of disconnect from the school and student body alike. Bear in mind that this is my perspective from my own little corner of the world. But by all accounts, the scenarios listed above are not isolated to the realms of art, entertainment and education. 38

“NO MATTER WHAT CAREER PATH YOU CHOOSE, THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL HAVE A JOB NEXT YEAR OR EVEN NEXT MONTH, SO WHY

NOT DO THE CRAZY THING AND FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS?”

“Down-sizing” (or “Right-Sizing” as I have heard it euphemistically called) is rampant in every industry. In short: Instability is not just for artists any more. So, what’s the positive take-away from this big, fat downer of a column? As I see it, we’ve got nothing left to lose. No matter what career path you choose, there is no guarantee that you will have a job next year or even next month, so why not do the crazy thing and follow your dreams? Do not over-analyze trends and jump into the career that seems “safe” or “profitable”. Nothing is “safe” anymore. If big corporations won’t hire you at a fair rate, then start your own damn company. If you are truly good at something—no matter what that might be— and you are willing to put in the time and sweat to become exceptional at your craft, then I guarantee that you can make a decent living doing it. It’s not going to be easy, but neither is working for The Man. We have made the present obsolete. What do you want? What do you need? We’ll find a way, When all hope is gone! - Slipknot, “All Hope is Gone”

Recently, I have been reading about huge layoffs in the entertainment industry. Dreamworks Animation announced that it is eliminating over 500 jobs in California. But, hey-- The industry is volatile, right? It’s understood that after each commercial or feature film is wrapped, employees are let go. It’s the nature of the beast. Like illustrators, most animators function as independent contractors. Yet in the past, the animators who did an exceptional job tended to get re-hired with little or no downtime. The new mass layoff trend is particularly disturbing because the few people at the top of the corporate ladder tend to walk away from financial disasters (often caused by their own misguided business practices) with millions in their pockets while artists who have been putting in their best efforts get laid off, leaving those left behind to work even longer hours. Sure, life is not fair, but this focus on profits with no regard for the creative contributions of the artists will sound the death knell of the entertainment industry as we know it.

FOODIE DIARIES

A MIDWINTER NIGHT’S FEAST

T

he farm-to-table movement is making its way into restaurants and onto menus across the country. From freshness and quality standpoints, to supporting the farmers and local economy, chefs are sourcing and diners are demanding local.

“THEY BUILT A NAME FOR THEMSELVES PRODUCING ORGANIC

AND HYDROPONIC

GREENS AND VEGGIES ...”

While they are not the first to host a dinner on their farm, the Swank’s do it right. Jodi and Darrin Swank have been inviting renowned local chefs to their farm for three years running to combine their produce with meat, seafood, and specialty items procured through a partnership with Whole Foods in one of the most unique settings in South Florida. They built a name for themselves producing organic and hydroponic greens and veggies, and are always happy to invite you to take a look around their gargantuan shade house, roughly four football fields in size. All the way out west in Loxahatchee, where the roads are letters instead of numbers or names, you can smell Earth as soon as you step out of your car. A local distillery is serving signature cocktails, and the Whole Foods tent is handing out welcome bites. It is a balmy 76 degree evening in mid-January, and for the first time since the program’s inception, the rain is beginning to fall; it rains lightly, but enough to move people from the reception area down to the tented ‘appetizer alley’, where each chef has put together a reflection of what you might find in their restaurant to give you a taste of their signature style and things to come. Finally you make your way to the pole barn, built just this year and fortunately so, for the main event. Warm electric string lights and candlelit mason jars make the roof glow, flames flicker on the linen-covered tables and the straw

covered ground completes the rustic ambiance. By this time, the rain has let up and the blues band has started, just in time for the ceremonial bread breaking. The chefs making this experience all hail from Miami. My favorite appetizer is chef Jason Pringle’s (of Daniel Boulud’s new concept db Bistro Moderne) oyster gratin with blood orange maltaise & pickled lemon peppers, followed closely by chef Simon Stojanovic’s beef carpaccio with garbanzo-lemongrass sauce. For the main courses, chef Jeremy Ford (from the new Jean-Georges concept The Matador Room) creates a shaved Florida snapper with green chili dressing, puffed rice, and swanky radish that ends up being the hands-down favorite of mine. The biggest surprise and a close second is chef Wolfgang Birk’s (Area 31) decadent sweet potato cooked in duck fat and drizzled with a kimchi mayo. The price is $155 per ticket, which may seem steep, but a comparable meal in one of their restaurants would run you the same. Factor in the setting, the local bands, the abundance of culinary talent, the bottomless pours from sommeliers and breweries, dessert from pastry chefs, and the fact that each dinner benefits a local non-profit like Gumbo Limbo or the Palm Beach Zoo, and the money pales compared to the experience. While many of the dinners have taken place or sold out by the time you read this, you can learn more, view the roster and stake your claim for next year’s series by visiting www. swankspecialtyproduce.com, and maybe you will have an experience that trumps mine.

DREW & JONATHAN SCOTT Foreword by Marcela Villa

Interview by Angela Yungk

Real estate can be difficult considering all of the competition and oversaturation in the field, but the Scott brothers have utilized their creative edge to make the market all their own. On one of their shows, Property Brothers, Jonathan and Drew Scott help a house hunter find and renovate a “fixer-upper�. Sounds like your typical home improvement show, but the Scott brothers lend their unique skills through their utilization of cutting edge software, design sense, contractor experience, and real estate expertise. The brothers are also able to take control of their media endeavors with their independent production company, Scott Brothers Entertainment. Art Hive Magazine had the pleasure of speaking with Drew and Jonathan about their creative successes and future.

“MANY PEOPLE FALL SHORT OF THEIR GOALS BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE THE DRIVE TO SEE IT THROUGH. IN OUR MINDS ANYONE CAN ACHIEVE SUCCESS IN THEIR LIVES IF THEY CAN BACK UP THEIR WORDS WITH ACTION.”

46

SPRING 2015


ART HIVE: Most people don’t know you began your careers with a film production company. What inspired you to create Scott Brothers Entertainment and what was your goal in producing the films? We were actually actors as kids before we started our production company. Whether it was sketch comedy, standup, theater, film or TV...we just loved to put on a show. In our last year of high school, we decided to start a production company so we could show the world our unique creative outlook. And that’s when we got into real estate, as a way to help fund our creative endeavors. ART HIVE: What are some of your recent or past film projects your are most proud of? Are there any new films or projects we should be on the look out for in 2015? In the earlier years we had some films that toured the festival circuit such as Karma Inc. (a story following a young man’s experience in purgatory where an unearthly office is responsible for assigning all karma on earth) & A Better Me...showing a guy’s journey from being self-conscious about his physical appearance to becoming comfortable in his own skin. On the acting side I (Drew) most recently starred in a Hallmark Christmas movie called The Christmas Parade which was the highest rated holiday movie on the network in 2014. Our production company, Scott Brothers Entertainment, has had a full slate with new projects we have been producing. Property Brothers At Home, Brother VS Brother, Half-Price Paradise and more. 2015 will have a lot of premieres for our company. ART HIVE: I love the emotional moments of your show Property Brothers; do you have a favorite/standout reaction to someone seeing a transformed house? We get some of the best reactions from homeowners because we are absolutely transforming their lives. I’ll never forget one mother’s reaction. She actually looked scared when we showed her the finished home. We asked her why she reacted that way and she said this must be some kind of prank. That we were going to take everything away after filming. Like so many people, she didn’t feel she deserved this special treatment. But she absolutely deserved it and so did her beautiful family. Once she realized the home was hers to keep... she was over the moon!

ART HIVE: Where do you recommend homeowners draw the line between do it yourself projects using things like YouTube videos etc, and hiring the professionals? If you have to ask yourself “Is this a load baring wall” or “will I get shocked if I do this electrical” you should probably use a professional. There are many projects you could take on to save money, such as small demolition, painting, building prefab cabinets, but work with your contractor to figure out the best division of tasks. ART HIVE: What do people usually get wrong when getting their houses ready to sell? A lot of sellers are blinded to the shortcomings of their home. They don’t realize the clutter, smells, and general wear & tear of their home can be offensive or off putting to buyers. This is why it’s key to work with an agent, and possibly a home stager, to make sure your home is looking it’s best! ART HIVE: A fear when renovating a house is to update an area, like say a kitchen, only to see it look outdated too quickly. What popular home trends do you predict are going to die out in the next couple of years and which ones will be coming in? The bolder you go with something, the faster it’ll go out of style. Know that most buyers out there don’t like overly ‘fancy’ home improvements. So it may be best to steer clear of stone countertops that have very bold veining or color; keep your wall color light as dark colors can close in a space; stick to dark wood tones, white or possibly grey cabinets for kitchen and baths as colored cabinets tend to be too trendy for many buyers. Lastly, ensure you don’t have too many ornate or traditional elements in each space. A couple rustic pieces can be great but too many will make a buyer feel it’s a dated room. ART HIVE: What is your one piece of advice you would both give to someone just starting out who wants to achieve entrepreneurial success? There is no shortcut to achieving success. Hard work and dedication is key. Many people fall short of their goals because they don’t have the drive to see it through. In our minds anyone can achieve success in their lives if they can back up their words with action.

ART HIVE: Where do you draw your inspiration from when you go to redesign the homes? We have traveled a lot over the years. We see different features all over the globe and love to use this as inspiration for our designs. Even commercial or industrial projects can help inspire us for residential design.

THE CREATIVE VOICE

Getting Intuitive with Artist and Teacher

CARLA GOLEMBE by Lucy Lazarony ABOVE: “Horse Dream” TOP CENTER: “Mare di Sogni” BOTTOM CENTER: “Southern Lights”

CG: Blending the intuitive approach with this was, at first, disconcerting. I kept wondering how do I do this? My balance is to use the intuitive approach to create very rich multilayered underpainting, then sketch the figure on the surface. That’s the anchor. I create the painting around it, leaving some of the under layers, allowing for discoveries.

Artist and teacher Carla Golembe combines careful planning with an intuitive approach when creating her whimsical, stylized paintings. She encourages her students to discover their own distinct style in the art classes that she teaches at The Art School of the Boca Museum and the Delray Beach Center for the Arts.

LUCY: What advice do you have for a beginning painter?

CG: The female figure is the core around which my painting unfolds. The things I love inspire my paintings; travel, the ocean, plant forms, birds, dance. An event can translate into imagery; an act of kindness becomes an angel. The way I perceive the world has always been central to my art, so my style, which has evolved over the years, came organically. As a child, I was drawn to stylized art. Studying in Mexico reinforced that. I paint beauty and joy because that’s what I want to put into the world. LUCY: How did intuitive painting help you fall in love with painting all over again? CG: Since I started in acrylic, I’d been growing in a linear way. Last spring, I was feeling stuck. I needed to get zapped with the magic wand of the muse. With intuitive process, I got excited. It was a different approach that led to unexpected marks and images. It was challenging, fun and freeing. LUCY: You like to plan each painting’s composition and palette. How do you combine all your careful planning with the more intuitive aspects of painting?

SPRING 2015

“I needed to get zapped with the magic wand of the muse. With intuitive process, I got excited. It was a different approach that led to unexpected marks and images.”

CG: Painting is a process. Be content to discover and learn rather than focusing on making a “good painting.” Everyone was a beginner once. Try not to have fear. The way to become a better painter is to paint a lot. Balance learning technique with self-expression. Paint what feels authentic to you in a way that feels organic. Learn the basics. Experiment. Take a class with an instructor who resonates with you. Frustration is part of the process, but from it, you grow. Keep a sense of humor, enjoy the journey. LUCY: What advice do you have for any artist who may be feeling stuck in their creative process? CG: It’s from those stuck places that we grow the most. When I work through “the swamp,” the art that comes out on the other side is more evolved. Being stuck is a necessary part of the creative process. Allow yourself the freedom to create without having to produce “quality product.” Try changing medium, scale or process. Know that all creative artists go through dry spells. Keep working! For more on the art of Carla Golembe, visit www.carlagolembe.com. An exhibition of her work is on display at the Spanish River Library in Boca Raton until April 11.
