Andy Rubin’s Artist Statement:
“Currently, I have been illustrating history and time as it reflects on our own lives and culture. Inspired from the 1940-50″s American abstraction artists like Ben Shahn, Stuart Davis, Saul Steinberg, Frank Gehry and Antoni Gaudi. I am printing over and manipulating historical images. I re-contextualize them to reflect the human condition…our impact on the environment, how we relate emotionally, even how time wears down and changes the way we perceive the world.”
