Created in 2015, Rubin’s series of bronze faces is an exercise in expression through composition and deliberate surface distortion. These faces seem to be searching for the undercurrent, a sense of character, mystery and wit. The real beneath the apparent. With them, facial recognition is about the hidden, not the obvious.
In the treatment of these faces is a sense of shock. Emotions are exposed, humanity stripped. Are they a series of disguises?
Part nature, part artistically gestured features, these faces unlock an inner life carefully guarded by the upheaval of their surfaces.
