Rubin’s maquettes began with his personal interpretations and approaches to making stelae and totems. Later, he began incorporating boldly defined geometric shapes into those organic forms. This animated fusion of styles creates a sense that spirits or natural forces inhabit the pieces. Can those leggy rectangles walk? Do the cubes dream? The artist’s touch is visible not only in his expressive surface treatment, but in Rubin’s uniquely personal, acid imposed patinas, a trademark of his work. By using traditional rather than industrial fabrication techniques, Rubin’s artistic involvement is evident in each work from beginning to end generic cymbalta.
A number of maquettes in the artist’s collection are available for courtyard enlargement.
