Rubem Robierb’s “Metamorphosis” at Taglialatella Galleries, New York
BY BLOUIN ARTINFO | SEPTEMBER 24, 2018
Taglialatella Galleries will feature “Metamorphosis” by RUBEM ROBIERB at its New York venue.
The month-long international exhibition will take place simultaneously in Taglialatella Galleries’ Paris, Toronto and New York locations in fall, 2018, followed by an encore reception in Palm Beach, Florida in early 2019.
Harnessing the strong aesthetic skills gained from his initial work as a photographer, which he now employs within a diverse range of multi-media prints, paintings, sculptures and three-dimensional works, the exhibition explores Robierb’s journey as a visual artist.
Robierb started his career as a young photographer in advertising, working primarily within the fashion industry of his native Brazil, but felt drawn to the freedom sanctioned by other forms of art such as poetry, which would allow him to work within many different cultures and places around the world.
The gallery reveals that after moving to the US, Robierb’s work became more provocative as he began to use his art as a vehicle to explore and reflect on the complexities of American society. Through the sharp juxtapositions between visual representation of the physical world and underlying universal socio-cultural issues present in these works, Robierb forces his audience to question the importance of material possessions in a new context.
“Today, Robierb’s imagery is never without this dichotomy, as the artist is continually inspired by opposing ideas of topical issues and concerns. Robierb says he has enlisted in what he calls a ‘Love Army’ and his mission is to explore art and action in one — as a voice of hope, love, and positivity. ‘Metamorphosis’ is an exhibition of these powerful images and ideas he would like to share with the world,” the gallery says.
His first solo show was sponsored by the Art et Partage Association in Aix de Provence in 2005 titled “Bresil Autrement.” In a brief period, Robierb established an impressive international exhibition record and as his career flourished, he settled in the United States.
“Metamorphosis” will be on view from October 4, 2018 at Taglialatella Galleries, 229 Tenth Avenue, New York, USA.
