Art That Pops | Paintings by Jerry Rubin
November 1 - December 2
Is it Pop Art, Contemporary Art, or Modern Art? It’s my art and I have no clue as to what it is, so I just call it “Art That Pops”.
I intend for my works to be bold, colourful, meticulous, and quirky; especially quirky. Each piece is meant to make a statement, not to simply occupy space on a wall as decoration but to grab attention. I set out to convey in my paintings the fun I have in creating them. Colourful? Yes, but having just said that let me contradict it with my latest series, ”My Shades of Grey” in which, big surprise, the paintings are all shades of…
My art hangs in homes, offices, and galleries virtually worldwide as I have exhibited in Canada, the USA, and Mexico. Viva México, as it is there that I have been ‘The Artist in Residence’ at “The International Gallery” in Puerto Vallarta during the winter months for the last 6 years. Sweet gig, eh?
About the Artist:
Lifelong proud Winnipegger, educator, businessman, and artist. My motto in life is to have no regrets at the end of it, so if I have an idea of just about any sort I pursue it. Some work out, some don’t but the ride is always worth it. My wonderful wife calls me “a serial entrepreneur” and I’d go along with that.
The art world is now my world. I painted and sketched voraciously until I was about 19 and then not at all, until I retired from business many years later. A pivotal moment at the beginning of my art revival was when I became friendly with a gallery owner in Key West, Florida. It struck me right in the creativity when she said, “All the paintings in my gallery are fabulous but none of them make me smile or are fun.” Bingo had been called and that became my mantra.
