Patrick Rubinstein

Patrick Rubinstein is a French optical and kinetic artist. If he does not belong to the generation of the precursors of this genre, he knew how to renew the genre. These artistic movements play on the faults of our visual perception, often expressed in a geometric expression. The work is no longer seen as a frozen representation in two or three dimensions, but it is able to surprise the viewer by creating the illusion of other dimensions; the movement can serve this purpose. Patrick Rubinstein grew up in Paris in a family that educated him about art. In his early years of adulthood, he was greatly impressed by these artists: Soto, Cruz Diez, Yacov Agam, or Vazarely. They will have a determining influence in his art. However, for Patrick Rubinstein, for a work to be successful, it must not only create surprise through movement or illusion, but it must also be able to provide emotion. The artist, in this sense, breaks with the founders of these movements by using figuration as the engine of his creation. He draws this emotion from the colorful universe of American Pop Art and the icons that rocked his adolescence. From this fusion was born the concept of Kinetic Pop Art by Patrick Rubinstein, which will ensure him an international notoriety.

He also transcribes this emotion in the works of Exceptions. The term is intentionally ambivalent, covering the notions of exception and exceptional. In this process, the artist is in an abstract and poetic expression. The color palette is reduced to the essentials and the shapes are surrounded by precious metallic materials. The massive presence of these materials confers new perceptions. Change no longer comes only through movement, but also through the variation and orientation of natural light. It is therefore a major innovation in the optical and kinetic arts. If we therefore had to summarize his work; Surprise and emotion would be his key words.
