Alfonso Artiaco gallery is glad to announce the opening of Glen Rubsamen's show «Euphoric, Narcotic and pleasantly hallucinant» on 13 th May, the artist will be present.
The evolution of Rubsamen's work denotes a documentary interest in the representation of typical images of great intensity drawn from landscapes: sunrises, sunsets, trees of all kinds and of any latitude. These characteristics combine the absence of people, the lack of defined spatial-temporal references, creating an atmosphere of stillness and suspension. However, in order to dilute an easy reference to a late romanticism, which can be deduced from the choice of the views, the subjects and the landscape imprint of his paintings, Rubsamen chooses ironic titles for his exhibitions. Furthermore, he insinuates in each of his works strong contrasts between the figures left in the shade and the intense colors of the skies, as well as oppositions between the same figurative elements sought both in the natural world and in the urban landscape.
