Escape the urban streets of Houston and step into Reeves Art + Design’s debut immersive art experience featuring the artwork of DUAL and Russ Rubin, both open December 10th – January 7th.
In “A Trip Thru the Jungle” Texas artist DUAL looks to transport the viewer from the streets of Houston to the lush jungle of the Amazon. Debuting sculptures, paintings, and video installations, his work explores not only the rainforest habitat, but the animal inhabitants that populate the environment as well. His bold lines and fresh colors are a break from the everyday monotony of life in the city. Through a blending of an urban subculture aesthetic, with the rich diversity of the rainforest, DUAL plans to give the viewer the sense that the gallery has been overgrown by the jungle environment.
In “Lost and Found” in the next room, Russ Rubin aims to transport you to another dimension, where the pragmatic falls away and only an offbeat beauty and the thrill of escape remain. Stare into his vintage gilt portals and you’re absorbed into a symphony of muted desert hues and otherworldly landscapes begging the viewer’s exploration. Perhaps the pièce de résistance, ‘Look Mommy’ is a hand-painted old motorcycle kiddie ride, the kind found outside 90s era supermarkets, set before a giant oval expanse laced with paths fiending for the next adventurer. By the time you hop on board and hit that blue button, you will have been fully launched into Russ’s dreamland, where all of this makes the best kind of bizarro sense and the lost feels closer to the found than ever.
Join us on December 10th, 2022 from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM for the opening reception which will feature an exclusive merchandise drop, artisanal cocktails, and a collection of scaly and feathered guests.Learn More
