The Nature of Vision and Motion
Patrick Rubinstein’s pioneering kinetic artworks pay tribute to the most renowned icons from the second half of the 20th century and offer an extraordinary viewing adventure. Using aspects of Surrealism, Street, Pop Art and Renaissance, he blends creativity, innovation and science to give each work an animated and perpetually self-renewing aspect. Patrick’s extraordinary images are held in the prestigious collections of a number of fashion designers and that of King Mohammed VI of Morocco, as well as being owned by French football and tennis heroes Kylian Mbappé and Yannick Noah along with several other international sport stars. His list of high profile collaborators includes world renowned architect and designer Philippe Starck.
Patrick meticulously sculpts and refines his artworks like a goldsmith and the outcome is mesmerising. He works with what he calls the double principle, which depicts the fusion of two images designed to blend into one, and the triple principle in which three images are each depicted individually, one centrally and two laterally. This avant-garde technique creates a kinetic effect, allowing visual variations when the spectator moves around the work or when there is a change in the direction or the intensity of the light source.
