Life Is A Classroom Each Must Learn A Lesson

‘Life is a classroom, each must learn a lesson’ is the 6th phrase of 6 that we are using as the premise for our collaborative show, The Gift of the Present Moment.

The fiber glass disk used was once a soundboard at the New World Symphony. We stole it, plastered it, sanded it and then painted it! We thought the image of lips would be good visual representation to match the phrase as lips teach lessons.

Below is a photo of our completed artwork and below that is a slide show of ‘Lips in the making’

Chloe Firetto-Toomey & Lazaro Amaral present ‘The Gift of the Present Moment” for Art Basel 2012 at the South Florida Arts Center, 924 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach from Dec 1st – Jan 24th 2013.

Life is a classroom, each must learn a lesson.

“Life is a classroom, each must learn a lesson” is the 6th poetic phrase of 6 that Lazaro Amaral Art and I are using as the premise to our art show titled, ‘The Gift of the Present Moment.’

I write the poetry or the words, Lazaro thinks of the visual representation of the words and together we produce! Below is a photo of a limited edition poster we made using mono type printing and silkscreen and measures 11 by 10 inches.

Below is a slide show of the poster in the making

You Don’t Need Eyes To See You Need Vision

The fiber glass disk used in place of a canvas is 3 foot in diameter and was once a soundboard used by the New World Symphony. Lazaro Amaral Art stole it from a rubbish tip and bought it back to his art store. We started working on the eyeball design to match the first of six phrases, You Dont Need Eyes To See You Need Vision.

Lazaro and I are collaborating for an exhibition titled, The Gift of the Present Moment. Our work will be on display at the South Florida Art Center, 924 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach from Dec 1st – Jan 24th 2013

The poster pictured below was designed by Lazaro Amaral Art for the collaborative show we are producing together, ‘The Gift of the Present Moment.’

You Don’t Need Eyes To See You Need Vision is the first of six phrases we are using as a premise for the exhibit.

From the poetic phrases we will produce visual representations to create what has been described as ‘Tourettes Art.’

ChloBirdPoetry Meets Lazaro Amaral Art to Present, ‘The Gift of the Moment’

A poet and a painter meet to create a body of work through different mediums via a shared view or concept. Artwork is bound to color, words to paper. Lets dive into both… a brief history 1st…

When ChloBirdPoetry walked into Lazaro Amaral’s print room at the South Florida Arts Center, it was as though the horizon spelled the limitless and she wanted to explore it. Chloe was eager to learn, to print her words, Lazaro was eager to teach his skills and did so with passion. Often Chloe in her willingness to learn would make mistakes in haste, turning Lazaro’s face red in frustration before breaking to a smile. Chloe knew this was a beginning, and she told Lazaro, ‘you’re going to know me for a long time’ he rolled his eyes to the heavens.

 Three years later, Chloe helps Lazaro in production for 2 shows, ‘Mafia Art’ and ‘Art Bitch’ in Miami’s Design District.For photos and more on the creative development click here.  Chloe is Lazaro’s production assistant, writer and editor. In turn, Lazaro teaches Chloe the art of Printmaking and Silkscreen. The duo will be collaborating for a new exhibit called ‘The Gift of the Moment.’

Stay tuned to see how Lazaro and Chloe develop their concept of “The Gift of the Moment”.
