Today… Leah Lubin!!!
Today, the color, the space. Today a different complete artist with a special personality and search.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, today infinite is with us, with the religious idea of a color that is becoming sacred. In the brush of Leah Lubin, infinite is the concept and color is its expression, a difficult objective.
Eduard Manet was amazed that distant day when he saw Velazquez paintings. How can he create a perfect atmosphere with an only color, whith an only shadow? It was during that famous trip to Madrid. Afterwards, when Manet returned to Paris, he studied the shadows. In fact, he studied how to paint the three dimensions (“Young Flutist”).
Leah Lubin was amazed that distant day when she looked at the blue sky (only a color to reflect an eternity!), when she looked at her skin (again, thousands of ocres mixing in one!), when she looked at the deep sea and at the colorless air. It happened during her childhood and she decided to study arts. In fact, she studied how to paint and to write (because she is also an author) the world.
Years in front of canvas, of white papers and impersonal pencils. Years of hard work and deep thoughts to arrive to her great paintings, nearly monocolor paintings, of our plural changing universe…, and beyond.
Why do we think blue, green or red are unique colors? In Leah Lubin’s brush we find so many blues, greens or reds as to represent the universe…, and beyond. She has exhibited in the NASA, I’m not surprise, because she imagines the limits (no limits) of our mind with the plasticity of a philosopher, with the curiosity of an artist, with the technique of a traveler…, an astronaut?
Get into Leah Lubin’s paintings, you are always invited. Enter, and enjoy the pleasure of being beyond the stars.
Leah Lubin is an author and artist. Born in Haifa, Israel in 1951, she moved to England when she was six years old. By the time she was 14, she knew that she wanted to be an artist, and at the age of 17, she enrolled in the Barnet College of Art, part of the London University system. She moved to the United States in 1979, and became an American citizen in 1986. Leah now makes her home in California.
