Adrianne Rubenstein mounted a solo exhibition at White Columns (alongside Annie Pearlman, Allyson Vega and Pam Glick), which was on view during the summer 2016. Her works, deemed "Expressionist revivalist" by Roberta Smith in The New York Times, are a joyous celebration of painting as a medium. With open-ended narratives, subtle humor, and relaxed yet energetic compositions, Rubenstein's aesthetic reads as free association on canvas. In Honeybees in Corn Flowers, Rubenstein blends her fascination with bees as archetypes of magical intelligence with social commentary on their role in commercial agriculture. Presenting viewers with a surreal scene of a false concept, as bees do not pollinate corn, Rubenstein brings discordant imagery to harmony through intuitive color and form.
Framing option is black or white painted wood, 7/8” wide flat face and 7/8” deep, with UV acrylic glass.
