Opening at Et al. gallery tonight, June 20th is a two person show with new work by Joel Dean and Adrianne Rubenstein titled “The Fruit That Ate Itself”.  Though taking vastly different approaches to materials, both share a sense of sincerity and humor in their practices.  The opening reception is 7-10pm.  For more information visit here.


The Fruit That Ate Itself
is hovering, piecemeal in
different states of
construction or in the mind,
in the as-yet-to-happen.

Imagine half-modeled hulks
of material, nacent forms drying
on canvas, perhaps only to
be covered by more paint
or to be discarded all together.

A double declaration:
this object is finished,
this object is here
(arranged amongst peers)
for you to see.
