The Delaware Division of the Arts Mezzanine Gallery is pleased to present Abstractions, an exhibition of photographic imagery by 2015 Individual Artist Fellow Jeffrey Rubin. The exhibition will be on view from October 2 – 30, with an opening reception on October 2, from 5 to 7 p.m. The Gallery, open weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is located in the Carvel State Office Building, 820 N. French Street, Wilmington.
Abstractions presents a selection of photographic interpretations of the natural world. Through recording and reinterpretation of the nature, the artist aims to represent the familiar in new ways.
As a body of work, these photographs are both intensely natural and intensely abstract. Influenced by abstract expressionism and other movements in art, they become fluid compositions of color, shape, and line. Part of the fluidity comes from the subjects which are selected, and are in an ever-changing state of flux. Whether it is ice and snow melting and re-freezing, salt drying and turning white amongst the new cracks in the pavement, everything is forever changing but also captured and frozen in time with the snap of the shutter. Rubin resides in Wilmington.
