EXHIBITION
GIDEON RUBIN
ONCE REMOVED
17 May – 5 July 2017


Gideon Rubin asks what it means to be a contemporary painter by using anonymous photographs, often from the turn of the century. He then selects characters and scenes which he conveys onto canvas or linen. Through the use of broad brushstrokes and a muted palette, the figures and landscapes are often abstracted, details are effaced and scenes move in and out of the picture plane. The surfaces of the paintings reveal strata of previous paintings or are scraped back to reveal the canvas beneath.  read more...
