WEST OUT WEST 09. 30. 11

Issac ‘WEST’ Rubenstein presents Freedom Suite a collection of his new paintings at Environment in Los Angeles today. 8126 Beverly Blvd from 7pmm-10pm.

In his new paintings WEST delves deeper into linear abstraction and expressionism to produce some of the most ambitious and unique post graffiti paintings today. Though not literal in its relationship to graffiti the works express the gestures and rhythms closely associated to his memories as a writer.  But as Freedom Suite suggests there is a detatchment from the formal constraints found in his traditional graffiti art as well his early abstract expressionistic work.

Looking at the paintings over time you slips into the subconscious journey of his line and the emotional weight of his painting where one moves through temperate stages not just in tonal values but with aggressive brush strokes and graphic lines throughout.

Based on a theory of style writing and action painting the works also show his  ability to cake history in layers in to these new works. I find them inspired by heritage in some part and in a greater part his way of extending it.
