Rubin’s bronze relief tablets evolved over decades of drawing, painting and applying surface textures to his bronze sculptures in a personalized form of calligraphy. His paintings and bronzes have always shown a close relationship to each other, resembling and complementing each other.
In the early 1990s he began to develop bronze tablet relief’s, which are intended to be viewed as free standing works. Acid-based patinas are applied to accent various levels of depth to the surfaces. This uniquely intuitive form of expression continues today– as it has for more than four decades– evolving in new directions unimitatively.
