In Reeves Art + Design’s December show, Lost and Found, Russ Rubin aims to transport you to another dimension, where the pragmatic falls away and only an offbeat beauty and the thrill of escape remain. Stare into his vintage gilt portals and you’re absorbed into a symphony of muted desert hues and otherworldly landscapes begging the viewer’s exploration. Perhaps the pièce de résistance, ‘Look Mommy’ is a hand-painted old motorcycle kiddie ride, the kind found outside 90s era supermarkets, set before a giant oval expanse laced with paths fiending for the next adventurer. By the time you hop on board and hit that blue button, you will have been fully launched into Russ’s dreamland, where all of this makes the best kind of bizarro sense and the lost feels closer to the found than ever.
The opening reception will be held on December 10th, 2022 from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM in conjunction with the partnering exhibition—DUAL: A Trip Thru the Jungle.
