Andrew Rubinstein

 

Andrew Rubinstein is an artist living in the Pacific Northwest, on a hill just east of Seattle.Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Andrew attended the University of Wisconsin, Madison for his undergraduate degree. Though he was brought up surrounded by art, by parents inspired by the arts, and with a mother who is a practicing artist, it wasn’t until his senior year in college when he made his first true painting. From that moment on, there was no looking back. After a brief hiatus to Jackson Hole, WY, for the ski season, and then a tour around Europe, in 1993, Andrew attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. While at first his inspirations were firmly rooted in the Chicago Imagists language, Andrew grew more and more interested in the language of mark making, the magic of paint, and the lyrical narrative produced through a series of strokes, marks, shapes and colors. Andrew would consider his artist relatives to be Andre Masson, Joan Mitchell, Philip Guston, early Ad Reinhardt, and Larry Poons, and Franz Klein….truly the list is longer, but there’s no room here for him to name all his inspirations and relatives. Andrew approaches all his work with the idea that the purest experience of painting is one that is automatic, and not concretely contrived, but as an organic experience, with actions and reactions that accumulate into the finished piece. 

 

Currently the work he creates is an attempt at making marks as forces of nature. Whether lines or curves, pours or splatters, he intentionally creates compositions that are to be read as both contrived, and organic; technological and natural; digital yet analogue.

The lines, which act as independent figures combine in quadrants which at first have an order, but as they are hand-made, and spontaneously generated, their order is only a simulation. As each quadrant or coalescence of lines interact with others, the apparent order breaks down further. What looks like organization is in fact chaos.

As a boy, I wanted consistency and precision, but I was taught some early lessons not to always rely on people’s’ words. In this way, I am mingling very personal emotional experiences with failed attempts at creating an order out of it all.
