A Question of Perspective: The Blizz Art Gallery Highlights Two Complementary Artists

Isabelle Scheltjens and Patrick Rubinstein are part of the art exhibited at the Blizz Art Gallery. Two artists, with a 20 year age gap, share a common universe around perspective and movement.

Isabelle Scheltjens (Belgium, 1981) ventured into art from a very young age and soon felt drawn to glass, discovering her own way of melting it to obtain different textures and shapes. In her case, perspective was essential and as she comments with her own words, “Everything looks better from a distance”. Proof of this are the works of art belonging to the Springs Blossoms exhibition currently on display at the gallery.

For his part, Patrick Rubinstein (Paris, 1960) devoted himself to the concept of Op (Optical) Art. Depending on the angle from which the work is observed, the possibilities of appreciating it are multidimensional, since he superimposes striking colors and also black and white, which generates a movement that impregnates the works with life. It is very simple to recognize the artist’s artistic roots: pop art, surrealism, street art and renaissance. A kinetic universe that is iconically represented.

Rubinstein’s creations, which remind us of Andy Warhol’s spirit and his famous Campbells soup cans, are a perfect combination of photography, painting, images and portraits. There is no doubt that his artistic language is motivated by the kinetic art inherited from his mother and the pop culture that emerged when he was just a young man.

Perhaps the most striking difference between the two artists is the type of material they use for their work. In Scheltjens’ case, glass can be as fragile as it is resistant, as opaque as it is transparent, and it is this versatility that gives the Belgian creator the ability to play without limits. Vibrant colors are also part of these creators’ universe and if both achieve something, it is to offer us art that can appeal to many senses, especially dynamism and versatility.

Nothing is static. Shapes and colors play with each other to stimulate our senses from their juxtapositions and entanglements. Nothing is taken for granted. One can stand in front of the work, observe something and experience certain emotions. But as soon as the gaze moves away, it is renewed, revealing different ways of looking.

If there is something that unites the spirit of the artists, it is the search for new forms that deviate from the traditional to provide innovative, contrasting and animated perspectives.

Taking a step back, looking in perspective transcends the work of art itself, and is in fact a way of representing the world around us and understanding what kind of observers we are.

In the end, everything is in motion and nothing is what it seems at first glance. Visit Blizz Art Gallery! A mustsee in Marbella.
