The fine art of Paula Rubino is on view through March 19, 2018 at Ann Long Fine Art (Charleston, South Carolina).
“Through direct observation of careful arrangements of colors and poses, my main goal is to evoke a certain mood, trying to get the painting in my head to eventually translate on canvas,” says Rubino. “My inclination to paint is driven primarily by the desire to make a visual statement rather than an intellectual one, though at times my paintings impart a subtle social comment in the guise of a pleasing image, often with a dash of humor or strangeness, aiming to strike a dissonant chord. These figurative paintings are observations made over time, in layers, that I hope finally result in a harmony, giving each painting its own life, and allowing it to speak for itself.”
