DESCRIPTION

Inspired by the philosopher’s works and writings, Gino Rubert quotes Jean-Jacques Rousseau: “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.” Following suit, Gino Rubert’s new body of work aptly titled True Love takes the shape of a series of love letters or pages from the Artist’s personal diary.  Refusing to be shut down by comprehension or singularity of experience, Rubert’s works read as both intimate and relatable yet display a calculated sense of self-deprecating humor. The Artist’s obsessively repeated imagery  relates his work to that of the Surrealists and the Magical Realists, as Rubert is often compared with De Chirico, Carrington, and Kahlo. Yet Rubert’s form is distinctive, at once enticing viewers to explore his canvases and deceiving them as they do. He uses this charged atmosphere as a locus to discuss the personal and sentimental complexities of “the new man and woman,” cutting through artifice to reveal our deepest emotions in a new light.
