Tonight head to Claire Oliver Gallery for the opening of Gino Rubert’s solo exhibition, True Love.
Rubert’s seductive, eerie mixed-media paintings will take you on a journey into the artist’s life and imagination. All of the men in the artworks are self-portraits of the artist. The paintings explore femininity through the artist’s tribute to women from his personal history, and take the form of what he considers to be love letters.
Inspired by the philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s works and writings, Gino Rubert quotes: “Love letters are started without a clue of what it is we want to say and finished without a clue of what we have said.”
The Mexican-born Gino Rubert lives in Barcelona and studied at Parsons School of Design here in New York City. After three very well-received New York exhibitions with David Beitzel over ten years ago, Beitzel closed his gallery. Sadly for New York, Rubert has been absent the scene since then.
The True Love exhibition at Claire Oliver is his triumphant return.
Rubert’s work contains intricate details and textures that cannot be captured in an image. I suggest a trip to Chelsea to see this show in person. If you can’t make tonight’s opening, don’t worry, the show will be up until April 28th.
