Patrick Rubinsteain conceives his ideas in a similar spirit to that of Andy Warhol and Robert Indiana, asserting that art should provoke a universal emotion. His extraordinary images are held in the prestigious collections of a number of fashion designers and that of King Mohammed VI of Morocco, as well as being owned by French football and tennis heroes Kylian Mbappé and Yannick Noah along with several other international sport stars. His list of high profile collaborators includes world renowned architect and designer Philippe Starck.
Created as a kinetic three-part artwork, ‘Gilded Love’ blends two beautiful images that shimmer and dance as they transform from one into the other to mesmerise the viewer. Featuring a beautiful array of highly decorative butterflies, and hand-embellished with exquisite gold leaf, this stunning collector's piece is exclusively available through Clarendon Fine Art.
With this celebratory new collection, Rubinstein pays homage to some of the most iconic artworks of the 20th century, as well as the ‘Masters’ responsible for them. Taking such famous images as Magritte’s surreal man in a bowler hat to the vibrant colours and cut-outs of Matisse, these works offer a dazzling new perspective on some of the world’s best–loved artworks.
Patrick’s avant-garde technique, applying what he calls the double and triple principles, creates a kinetic effect, allowing visual variations depending on the viewing angle or when there is a change in the direction or intensity of the light source. The Double Principle depicts the fusion of two images designed to blend into one which is then applied on his chosen medium in a concertina configuration which allows the two original images to be seen from both sides. As the spectator moves around the artwork the interlacing of the two views from different angles show a constantly changing image. The Triple Principle depicts three images using a blade technique perpendicular to central image, again allowing the visual variations but maintaining defined sight of the central image throughout the viewing experience.
The art of the icon is brought firmly into the 21st Century as Rubinstein reinterprets a host of famous faces, cartoon characters and even luxury branded perfume bottles in three extraordinary dimensions, with his uniquely innovative creativity and flair.
The ‘Exception’ series marks a turning point for Rubinstein as he explores monochrome colour palettes and precious materials, resulting in some distinctive new optical effects. Taking Robert Indiana’s seminal ‘Love’ sculpture as his starting point, he has created a series of monumental, luxurious works which both illuminate and reflect light as they take us on a mesmerising visual journey.
