Rubin by Gil Conradis

Rubin by Gil Conradis

Title: Rubin

Desc: These are a series of portraits \I have done predominately of people I know and am familiar with. When the markets and economy as q whole plunged in 2008, I faced a diminishing market, to be polite. Portraits have always been a specific word driven form at best in the 2000s' Should I adapt - how? should i become campy and trendy? Just not my way. I simply started painting smaller - 8 x 10 in (20.32 x 25.4 cm) for my own start of mind practice and to keep working. No expectations, just friends and acquaintances I would take pictures with my iPhoto and if they were of interest I would paint them in a rather expressionist method. This for me is several steps away from a "formal" portrait where the colors a muted, the transitions are subtle.
