R1 TILL 30.06 This work by the French artist Patrick Rubinstein features Pop Artist Robert Indiana’s iconic “LOVE” print, that is depicted against a mesmerising backdrop formed by countless butterflies. Patrick mixes both warm and cool tone colours, creating a vibrant colour palette that imbues the work with a sense of dynamism. Through an innovative process, Rubinstein’s art has a striking effect when observed: the image, fixed at first, comes to life according to the movements of the viewer, giving his artworks an animated and perpetually renewed nature.
About the artist
Patrick Rubinstein draws his themes from both the past and the present and is inspired by Optical Art and Kinetic Art, genres that play with our perceptions through art. His works often feature the major icons and celebrities of the second half of the twentieth century and feature an innovative technique, which allows visual variations when the spectator moves around the work while maintaining defined sight of the central image. The result of this is captivating, giving the artworks an animated and perpetually renewed nature. Rubinstein’s art has a striking effect when observed: the image, fixed at first, comes to life according to the movements of the viewer. We become the animator vis-à-vis the unprecedented dynamics of his work, that draw us into a captivating visual experience, and surprises us with every viewing.
