EXHIBITION: Chris Rubino: Make Believe Maple Leaves
RECEPTION: JANUARY 17, 7-9PM
EXHIBITION DATES: JANUARY 18 – FEBRUARY 8, 2009
Heist Gallery is pleased to present the work of Chris Rubino, a versatile artist who has created a vast array of imagery through illustration, printing, graphics and photography. The simplicity and flattened forms that dominate his visuals capture pieces of our daily language in minimal forms. For his solo exhibition at Heist titled Make Believe Maple Leaves, Rubino incorporates the written word into a complex world of iconic lexicon, drawing from process-oriented sketchbook drawings created over the course of one year. Rubino infuses his creations with color using pastel, paint, colored pencil and printmaking. Exuding a faster yet less mechanized energy, this body of work mirrors the way we process imagery and information today.
Make Believe Maple Leaves explores themes of sweetness, temptation and deception, reminding us of modern day decisions that focus on love, career, consumption, and our daily grind that overtakes our senses on a daily bases. His work requests and insists that the viewer take the time to see and appreciate the sweeter side of life rather than search mindlessly for nonexistent fragments of our own imagination while letting temptation and deceit trip us in our paths in the least and most likely places.
