A treatise on the Ordinary Man – Part I.
Rubins Computer Graphics, Mixed Media Paintings and Digital Collages are extremely challenging for today’s audience. First, because of his unusual visualizations as compared to the existing artistic guidelines of Surrealism. As for the contents, intimate iconography mixes with the traditional iconography in an unusual and original way. As for his response to the tempting beauty of trumpery, capricious citing of history and fantastic assemblings, Rubins is close to Surrealistic classicism, as for perfected formalism he is close to Hyperrealism.
Artist concepts are interwoven with rich significations of dreams in abundant and deep symbolic meaning of fantastic landscapes. Through the invocation of the archetypes, evocation or alchemical union, the basic concept of scenography is manifested.

Though his inner world has not yet given him enough courage to face the world, therefore, using the imaginary tools is of vital importance to him. Nevertheless, he lives merely that, what wants to express by itself, tries to transform him and save him from the burden to be someone else. Rubins is aware that, to be born, live and die is the ultimate adventure! The unique experience, happening to all equally. And thank goodness, that it happens! He feels endless gratitude, but considers living day by day, as only a rough sketch for something more intense and more vast in the oncoming future. Wishing to be at the right place, when this world quietly awaits his rebirth! He concludes, that there lies a solution …
