American artist Chris DeRubeis is an award winning young talent who is fast emerging as a leading contemporary artist with his self created 'Abstact Sensualist' movement.
He works on metal sheets - and uses an intriguing technique, grinding the surface of the metal and applying chemicals and paints - something which emerged from a happy accident whilst working with a metal grinder in his workshop.
DeRubeis' paintings create a world of celestial abstraction that captures colored soaked light which appears to spring from the surface of the pieces. With soft lines, he weaves together forms of metal surface pattern and paint to make his compositions flow in harmony.
Each work is a unique original, as DeRubeis uses structures and waves of light to build weightless, diaphanous forms. Colors flow seamlessly from one hue to the next, while the transparency of his layers of paint creates the illusion of incredible depth. These stunning, shimmering artworks need to be seen to be believed!
