Summit To Some, Valley To Others
Acrylics and Spraypaint on Wood and Canvas, ⌀80 CM, Unikat.
In the work “Summit To Some, Valley To Others”, Ruebensal continues his artistic work on the theme of “eyes”, expanding it to include both personal and universal contexts. Thus, the ring-shaped canvas not only recalls the human ‘iris ring’, but also simultaneously echoes the design form of the European flag. Combined with a tear reminiscent of the shape of the African continent, the work thus plays with current themes around restitution and our European-colonial past.

Max Ruebensal is a Contemporary German artist, whose works reflect on symbolism, identity, pop culture & the ever-growing digitalization of our everyday lives. Early fascinations for the upcoming digital world of the internet led to graphic design work, drawing, and later conceptual/sculptural art, which became a serious endeavor after finishing high school and returning from traveling around the world.
The following years led to successful art ventures in and off the topic of anatomical art, before Ruebensals was drawn to Shanghai to work with acclaimed artists in an international gallery. Upon return, he transgressed into experimental paint techniques, and years of exploration led to his signature art style that moves along the intersections between abstraction and figuration.
Today, Ruebensal lives and works in his studio in Berlin, and much of his recent work combines his early conceptual approaches with his experimental and process-oriented art practice to explore the realms of identity in an accelerating world and society.
