Chris DeRubeis:  Father of Conceptual Movement

Chris DeRubeis | Prothro Gallery

The art world is now recognizing Chris DeRubeis as “THE FATHER OF CONCEPTUAL MOVEMENT.”  DeRubeis’ paintings bring to you the world of celestial abstraction that captures colored soaked light which appears to spring from De Rubeis’ art. With his soft lines, he weaves together forms of metal sculpture and paint to make his composition 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.

Chris DeRubeis paints on metal, mixing pigments and chemicals and incorporating power tools and natural elements such as fire, water, and freezing techniques. He calls his art “Abstract Sensualism®,” in reference to the organic nature of his paintings. DeRubeis believes his work can alter the way people perceive contemporary art.
