Gino Rubert – Irma Lentamente

Barcelona’s Galería Senda has installed their sixth solo exhibition with Gino Rubert. “Irma Lentamente” (Irma Slowly) features paintings and drawings created over the past year.

The paintings are explorations into the personal attitudes of the artist. There is often the feeling that you’ve opened the wrong door, apologized and replaced the wood firmly into the hole. When extraordinary moments, or in this case paintings, occur it is human nature for the memory to loop like a film on the mind.

This exhibit is giving us a first look at the drawings of Gino Rubert. They are technically exquisite with varying degrees of complexity. The inclusion of these pieces in “Irma Lentamente” is a great counterpart to the paintings offering the most complete view of the artist’s manner to date.
