Visionary Artist Celebrates Interconnected Relationships in Every Piece
Growing up, visionary artist Alette Simmons-Jimenez was constantly surrounded by nature and learned to appreciate the true essence of the world and its eccentric scenery.
After receiving her BFA from Newcomb College in New Orleans, Alette made her way to the Dominican Republic where her imaginative art made its start. Alette seizes every opportunity to praise spiritual ideas and natural phenomenon in her craft.
Alette lets her art flow naturally as she halfway orchestrates and halfway lets go, allowing processes, instincts, and actions to build the work. Her work embodies the connection between human to nature and vise versa, resulting in raw pieces that celebrate the physicality of our natural world.
“My work examines the transformative power of nature and the relationship between nature, society, and self,” says Alette.
Now based in Miami, Alette Simmons-Jiménez’s multidisciplinary art is showcased in her own studio, giving Alette the opportunity to express her ideas in multiple ways. Her work continues to leave notable footprints and is praised locally and internationally with more exhibitions in the works.
SHOWFIELDS partnered up with the artist to showcase a live curation where she discusses her curated works that illustrate an appreciation of craft as well as vision and concept.

Q - Tell us a little bit about yourself and your practice:
"My mother was an avid gardener. I grew up as a military kid and was uprooted many times, from the big city to small village, from a big house to a small cottage. But no matter where we were there would always be a garden, or one would quickly appear out of moist, brown shades of soil. My mother taught me how to speak to flowers and watch them flourish.
The garden, in our nomadic lives, was always the constant and is ever-present in my life today. I fuse geometrical form with the flow and rhythm of nature. I employ the concept - reuse, rethink, reimagine, orchestrating, and letting go, allowing processes, instincts, and actions to build the work."
Q - What are your parameters for artist selection?
"When asked to curate, without thinking, my first choices are artists whom I know are seriously dedicated to their work. They’ve been working for a while, had successes and failures, and their work is all the richer for it. I require true professionalism, being on time, and meeting the given deadlines. It’s a collaboration and we are all working together - there is zero-tolerance for attitude."
Q - What kind of artwork is relevant to our generation and the times we are living?
"The beauty of art is that it is so diverse and never ceases to surprise. I don’t believe in limits or labels of what is or is not relevant for today. Art and creativity are experienced in the moment and interpreted differently by each particular person."
Q - Tell us about this curation for SHOWFIELDS:
"As an artist myself, I'm attracted to work that speaks to the same concepts I’m passionate about, work that examines the transformative power of nature and the relationship between nature, society, and self. The works I've curated also illustrate an appreciation of craft as well as vision and concept. They are works I want to spend time getting lost in, work I want to dive into and examine up close. They celebrate the physicality of the handmade and engage materiality. They nurture new associations, rethinking and reimagining what's possible."
Q - What is your advice for art lovers and appreciators looking to start their own art collections?
"There is very good original art at all price levels. Buy what you like and what makes you happy. Buy from your local artists and enjoy the creative community that will open to you."

Sheena Rose, a visual artist born and raised in Barbados is making a global impact. Her Caribbean heritage has significantly inspired her work as all her pieces retain aspects of her culture in many ways."As a Black Caribbean woman from Barbados, I am both questioning and stating my identity, race, gender, and sexuality openly," says Sheena.
The artist has a multi-disciplinary practice and her artwork embodies all mediums such as paintings, drawings, performance art, new media, public art, and mixed media. Rose is admired internationally and featured in many media, newspapers, and magazines, book covers such as The New York Times, Travel & Leisure Magazine, and Vogue.
Rose’s pieces also depict her life through her perspective while highlighting raw emotion and personal challenges."I am looking for a narrative which is mirroring the bizarre world we are currently living in," says Rose.
Just as raw and unfiltered as her art, the artist is an open book. She voices inner challenges publicly in efforts to push and inspire others. During the pandemic, Rose was diagnosed with high-risk lupus, an auto-immune disease which causes the body to attack itself. "The pandemic has given me the time to reflect, reject, and respond to this space," says Rose.
Her journey through lupus and the pandemic reflected a great amount in her work, pushing a new discovery among herself with every drawing and brush strokes. "I have learned so much about myself and decided to incorporate my journey through the unpredictable nature of Lupus into my work...imagining Lupus as a space that the beings are living in and in which they must respond," says Rose.
Rose is not only a contemporary artist, but also a proactive activist and savvy businesswoman. She officially started her company called Sheena Rose Inc. and won the DSM Public Art Foundation commission to design 7 bus shelters in 6th Avenue Corridor, Iowa USA, and many other art projects to develop in the near future.
Although the pandemic dramatically changed the world and how we live, Rose is on a mission to highlight the power of accepting yourself for who you are."The pandemic has revealed so much about our human condition. It is a restructuring and acknowledging of the structural positions of race, class, gender, sexuality, and social space," she revealed.
Rose’s challenges never stop her from doing what she loves and are always channeled into her creations.
Even through global circumstances while fighting an autoimmune disease, her drive to inspire people through artwork continues. "These times have shown me the importance of healing, understanding, and accepting oneself. It has greatly taught me about the appreciation for and delicacy of life, Self Care, and Self Love," she shared.
