Rubeck, otherwise known as Sumo Bunni, obtained her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Rubeck worked as a Studio Assistant, an Art Instructor, a Curator and Judge for many exhibits.
She currently exhibits het work nationally and internationally.
Rubeck’s work is ethereal, existing in a realm beyond our own. It seeks to envision the future of us as we progress into a technological existence that is growing exponentially. It senses a divide in humanity as this progress unfolds, between those that embrace the machine, and those that linger in the natural world.
Rubeck is able to express the subtle, inherent consciousness that resides in nature, and our direct connection to it, through a combination of the figurative and surreal. There is often a melancholic energy expressed through her palette, offset by an explosion of emotional color.
Her figures have a strong psychological presence that invoke reflective thought.
This exhibit will concentrate on Rubeck's new work; Images of ancient rocks in an unraveling of illusion and reality in an appeal for a deeper universal connection: Piecing It Together.
