Bio

His work shows an impressive mastery of metaphorical and allegorical subjects, displaying both his dry humor and his bold approach to the figure in his vigorous and expressive work. Ernst Neizvestny, a renowned artist and philosopher, said, "Gubin's work occupies a unique place in which there is synthesis of freedom of expression and feelings and true artistic professionalism."

Statement

My two-dimensional works on paper emanate from myriad geometric drawings that are cut out and carefully reassembled. Part Cubist, part Surrealist, these images are best described as “Similar to the action of our memory– from fragments we reconstruct the past.

”For some time now, while working on my paintings, I’ve been striving for a maximum emotional liberation, for an energetic, expressive art. Mixing paint right on the canvas, I’ve been creating paste like textural painting; trying to bring element of unexpectedness and incompleteness. When working on a painting, I direct the main focus toward color and texture. This creation occurs when I reach the level of the highest emotion and absolute freedom of self-expression. The uniqueness of this process creates the uniqueness of the work itself.

"His varied pencil markings range from dark and dense to light and loose in a rhythmic flow across the well-covered paper surface, emitting a strong sense of vitality and energy. Each of Gubin's technical choices works to expand the dynamic of his imagery"
