    Live & works in Oakland, CA USAEven today, when I’m wounded, I’d rather lick the blood and get back to work – like the women soldiers in “Daughters of China,” the 1949 propaganda film that serves as the basis for my most recent paintings. Usually I paint from historical photographs of China, but in this case the film offered me a sequence of panoramic stills, each frame filled with the heroic and desperate struggles of eight female soldiers who, in 1938, sacrificed their lives to save the retreating Chinese army. I saw this film as a child in China, and it shaped my expectations of women as protagonists in the emerging socialist utopia. Of course, utopia never arrived, but a kind of hard won feminism stayed with me the rest of my life, and served me well in America. History is not a static image or a frozen story. It is not a noun. Even if its images and stories are very old, it is always flowing forward. History is a verb. The new paintings are my way of painting life back into my memories of a propaganda film that, over time, has become a document of the revolutionary sincerity that permeated my childhood. Even the actors in the film believed in their roles. When they walked into the river, carrying their dead and wounded, they were going home.

    “It is with great pleasure that I recommend Norelkys Blazekovic to you.  She is a tireless worker who is self-motivated and self-directed.  Any project with which we were involved was carried through with persistence, professionalism and enthusiasm.  She assumed her responsibilities with total commitment. I was enhanced by her presence.  Ms. Blazekovic personality and intelligence are a delight. My collaborations with Ms. Blazekovic concerned four major articles in her magazine Irreversible. I would recommend Norelkys Blazekovic to you without reservation.

    “I am, by default, the illustrator of my ideas, even though I seem to lie to myself constantly. Creating is the most “bestial” process of my conclusions. It is the energy of starting something without exactly knowing the actual outcome. My environment are constants in my aesthetic proposal, which is tied to the parallel need to understand common sense and making my interpretation of it more or less acceptable or understandable. Creating is the experience of being constantly unsatisfied. When this happens, I should redo and lie to myself again.”

    In 2001, Ramírez, who was born 50 years ago in Puerto Rico, was named the first director of the International Center for the Arts of the Americas, based at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. The most ambitious effort of its kind in the U.S., the center is dedicated not only to collecting and showing work by the Latin American avant-garde but also to supporting research and education to make plain that there is more to that art than, say, the folkloric Surrealism of Frida Kahlo or the toiling peasants of Diego Rivera.

    If the standard history of modern art is like a package tour of a few familiar cities — Paris, New York, Moscow, Berlin — the Ramírez version also passes through Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo and Caracas, among other places. As she sees it, modern art in Latin America has been likely to have a political dimension, something that the standard academic accounts of Modernism, with their emphasis on questions of form, have had trouble taking into account. But even though Ramírez has a Ph.D. in art history from the University of Chicago, she says “my role models were never academics. I come from a tradition where intellectuals and artists are part of the public sphere, where they participate in forging public life on a daily basis.” Now she doesn’t just come from that tradition. She’s extending it.

    Pablo Cano and Founding Publisher/Editor Norelkys Blazekovic

    “I have worked with Noor on several of her art projects and exhibitions for Irreversible Magazine. Noor is extremely professional; she means what she says and has the discipline to realize projects no matter how challenging. Every catalogue or invitation is beautifully done with exquisite detail and quality.   I had the honor and privilege to have my work featured on the cover and centerfold  of two Irreversible Magazine issues. Every issue is a work of art.  I recommend Noor Blazekovic and  Irreversible Art Projects highly.” Pablo Cano Artist

    “Dear Noor, Irreversible Magazine is stunning and original. We would be happy to carry it in the MOCA Shop. Good luck with you project.”  Best wishes, Bonnie Clearwater Director and Chief  Curator of Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami

    “When Norelkys Blazekovic founded Irreversible Magazine in 2005, she had little notion her publication would evolve into a global arts project. “It has become a portal for cultural exchange and projects from Miami to Switzerland, Spain and Japan,”. Carlos Suarez de Jesus Art Critic

    WHO READS IRREVERSIBLE?

    Master Carlos Cruz-Diez  (FR) has consistently worked through his career focusing solely on color, line and (viewer) perception. His visual style can be consistently identified throughout his work spanning his entire career. His work contains an element in which the viewer actively participates in viewing the work because the color changes and presents a sensation of movement as the relative position of the viewer changes. Cruz-Diez uses the moiré effect to produce this sensation of motion by his particular composition of lines.[7] Because the image of his work changes as the viewer changes locations, he refers to this changing effect of the image as “vibrations.”

    (JP) Kaoruko’s large-scale paintings offer a fresh take on feminist imagery by combining codified prints taken from traditional Japanese textiles with female figures depicted in their private domestic spaces. By reflecting on a young woman’s relationship with herself, her possessions and her role in society, Kaoruko illustrates that simple, everyday rituals can lead to joy, happiness and ultimately transcendence. She currently lives and works in New York City. kaoruko.laff.jp/

    The Kelley Roy Gallery exhibits the work of American and International contemporary painters and sculptors. Most are established, well recognized and represented by the Kelley Roy Gallery. The vast majority of the work consists of paintings, drawings and sculpture. Secondary market sales are confined primarily to the work of artists currently represented by the Gallery.www.kelleyroygallery.com

    ARG) Alfio Demestre lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Alfio works in different media–with sculpture, drawing and photography. He began working on installations 10 years ago when he and a group of four other artists founded the collective Oligatega Numeric. Since 1999 they have been working on installations, videos, texts, sculptures, music, and performances. One of his main interests has been the study of light, employing it as a key element in his work. These investigations are a valuable means to understanding not only art itself but everything as a whole in contemporary culture. http://luminicdesign.blogspot.com/p/contacto.html

    Part of my IRREVERSIBLE mission is to expose, unite and celebrate both past and present innovators; I am constantly challenging myself finding ways that helps us to achieve an universal message; building a strong foundation and a long-lasting legacy for our future generations.

    There is a perceived leadership crisis in both the private and public sectors, and leadership theories abound. Institutions have called into question our very notions of what leadership is, who can rightly be called a leader, or why leadership matters. Is for this reason that today we have this unique opportunity to meet, greet and discuss trust, vision, responsibility, empathy, and the ability to share knowledge.

    No single leader can save the day in the larger society, effective leadership is based on empowerment, respect, team building and collaboration.
