MANSFIELD, PA- “D2ALITY,” a collection of works by Marc Rubin, is on display at the Mansfield University Gallery. The exhibit will run through October 7.
”I pull things from the debris of the world, objects we walk by every day, and by painting them, I attempt to bring out their beauty and the flash of emotion I first felt looking at them,” Rubin says of his work. “These objects whisper their stories to me—without words–using only their texture, their weight, their humble presence. I bring the viewer eye-to-eye with them, and as simply as possible, I let them speak for themselves. They say things like: I’m tired but grateful.; I’m beautiful and I will die.; “I’m here—do you see me?”
Rubin’s work can be seen in galleries in Philadelphia and Scranton, PA, Corning and Greenport, NY, Lambertville, NJ and Chestertown, MD.
From 1990–2001, Rubin painted weekly under the guidance of world-renowned painter Thomas Buechner, and continues in that tradition to masterfully paint representational oils on panels. In 2006, he taught painting and figure drawing at Elmira College.
In addition to his work as a painter, Rubin is an award-winning graphic designer and owner of Marc Rubin Associates, which offers business-aligned creative solutions to graphic communications needs.
He serves on the executive board of directors for the Arnot Art Museum and is a member of the American Institute of Graphic Arts, the Design Management Institute and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Rubin served on the board of The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes for 12 years and is a past board member of the Upstate New York chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts.
Rubin resides in Elmira, NY, with his family.
