On Exhibit: April 13 – May 15, 2012
Rubin is one of the foremost floral watercolor painters
in the country. Born in Chicago in 1948, Rubin holds a BFA
from the University of Illinois. Her flowers have formed the
base of over 50 exhibitions, garnered nearly 20 awards and
have found their way into dozens of permanent collections.
Deborah's paintings combine a spectacular large scale with
brilliant light and meticulous detail. She has been pushing
the boundaries of photo-realism and hyper-realism since the
mid 1970's with an eye on nature and more recently, architecture.
She currently lives in western Massachusetts.
Rubin’s technical proficiency recalls her photorealist
concerns, the crystalline-yet-fluent quality of her images
creates a depth of feeling and a strong concern with content
and symbolic meaning."
