The Agora Gallery (530 West 25th Street, Chelsea, New York, NY, 10001) is proud to present Dalia Rubin in The Texture of Space. Scheduled to run from October 1st through October 21st, the collection will feature a captivating selection of Dalia Rubin's stunning paintings.

About Dalia Rubin:
Dalia Rubin's stunning paintings re-imagine the natural world as a tranquil display of textures and forms in beautiful equilibrium. Her works conceptualize and rearrange organic shapes, while also allowing them to maintain their character: plant life still pushes through stone in these paintings, or reaches for sunlight, or floats on sea-green waves, yet with an austerity counterpoised by the lush colors that Rubin brings forth through her brushwork. Additionally, Rubin eschews creating the illusion of three-dimensional space on her canvases. Instead, her plants, stones, water, and sun are presented in stylized portraits that make powerful use of the canvas's vertical and horizontal spaces.
This is the silent, natural world we too often take for granted, and these works are more than still-lifes, more than arrangements of color and shape; with a daring mix of symmetry and abstraction, Dalia Rubin distills the universe of organic life down to its forms and textures, then raises it up for our contemplation, a world both new and intimately familiar.
