Galleria Rubin is a contemporary art gallery founded in Milan, Italy in 1997. Galleria Rubin works with Italian and
international artists, mainly painters and sculptors, focusing on the artistic techniques.
I’m not a realist painter. The problem in representation lies in the difficulty of finding other pictorial functions in order to capture reality. In my work, I’m searching for pictorial functions that are based on the idea that the painted picture knows itself to be metaphorical, rhetorical, transformational, fictional or poetic. The technical aspect of a work is not unimportant, but what gives meaning to it is the pictorial content. The critical discourse and the education of an artist are caught between two poles – a formalist and a conceptual one. In both cases, the problem of representation of the subject is evicted. The question of representation is essential and is the product of interdepedence between the formal and conceptual aspects. If by observing my paintings without the disruption of his or her perception by a didactic text, the spectator is reminded of some personal memory or major historic events, it only proves that I have been able to preserve the vitality of the painted image.
Stefan Hoenerloh, Dalla Russia con Amore, 1997, olio, acrilico su tela, 93 x 128 cm This painting was also a preliminary version for a larger painting (186 x 256 cm). I am currently in the process of preparing my large studio, for large-format paintings, to begin working on this piece. The lighting has to be perfect because the smallest defect could lead to discord between the tones in the top and bottom of the painting. S.H. 2010
