LAKE PLACID - "How I See The Adirondacks," a look at the past five years of unique fine art photography by Carl Rubino will be on display through Jan. 16 at the Lake Placid Library.
About the photographer
Rubino's photography captures a variety of subjects, most of them taken in his native Adirondacks, but this work shares one common characteristic - it all results from his unique interpretation and vision.
When he was five years old, his mother sat him on the couch, played classical music, and told him that if he closed his eyes he could "see" the music. He did, and he did. And that has made all the difference in how he sees the creative world. To Carl, the scene that lies before him is only a starting point.
Abstract reflections in a beaver pond, the power of raging rivers, trees that look like paintings, peeling paint abstracts - Rubino's work explores the full range of his imagination. His work has been called "painterly" and "unique," with viewers often remarking that he really has his own way of seeing what others don't. This show features pieces from many of his solo shows, in sizes from notecards to over-the-mantle huge.
Over the past five years, Rubino has developed a number of bodies of work, many of which have resulted
in solo themed exhibitions in various galleries in the Burlington area and in numerous curated and juried group shows in galleries and museums in the Adirondacks and beyond. His work has been in Adirondack Life, Art Map Burlington and Seven Days and is included in the permanent art collection at the View in Old Forge.
