Adrianne Rubenstein in New York, NY

I enjoyed stopping by to see Adrianne Rubenstein’s exhibition Global Warmth and Global Cooling at Broadway gallery.

“The paintings….are full of flowers, stars and food — from otherworldly broccoli to a flat red apple that could have been lifted from Eric Carle’s “The Very Hungry Caterpillar.” There’s also a ruby-red goldfish borrowed from Matisse and several references to Mollie Katzen, the cookbook author and artist. But loose brushwork and a gorgeous palette of sugary pastels that ease the way into deeper blacks and indigos mean that the pieces almost work as abstractions, too — pure expressions of art-historically inflected painterly innocence”. (Will Heinrich/ The New York Times)

Canadian (born in 1983), but lives and works in New York City, Rubenstein is one to keep your eyes on. The show closes on November 20th.
