Gino Rubert "True Blues"
This event has ended.
For his first exhibition at Mizuma Action, Gino Rubert presents the "True Blues" series. The title of the show translates as real sadness, but it also refers to the concept "true blue", which means fidelity and loyalty between lovers or friends. In the paintings at the exhibition one can appreciate a formal step forward in Rubert's style that has to do with the use of thread and natural hair. These elements - in addition to others such as photography, holograms or transparent plastics - are ones that he has been applying for a while in to his paintings using a unique and elaborate collage technique and load the images with an almost unbearable realism and strength. A series of watercolors on bondage and the extremely subtle and poetic animation titled "the love loop" complete the exhibition.
