This workshop focuses on the condition abstraction presents in amalgamating disparate parts of our psychology and philosophy in the medium of painting. Specific prompts will provide fodder for the creation of a visual language which may arrive from a representational substrate to ultimately morph in the abstract. We will delve in both past and contemporary painting to augment our perception of the lineage of abstraction and the possibilities it may present today.



Rubens Ghenov was born in São Paulo, Brazil and immigrated to the US in 1989. Rubens has shown nationally in both solo and group exhibitions, notably Morgan Lehman Gallery (NY), Mindy Solomon Gallery (FL), Geoffrey Young Gallery (MA), Marginal Utility (PA), TSA Brooklyn (NYC), and The Philadelphia Museum of Art. He teaches painting and drawing at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Ghenov has been featured in Art in America, Hyperallergic, The Village Voice, Bomb Magazine, Title Magazine and The Philadelphia Inquirer.
