YAREAH MAGAZINE -- Brian Gross Fine Art is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of work by Santa Fe artist Meridel Rubenstein, opening September 12, 2015, with a reception from 3 to 5pm, and an artist’s talk at 3:30pm. On view will be 10 new photoworks from “The Volcano Cycle,” the second part of Rubenstein’s three-part series, “Eden Turned on its Side.” In “The Volcano Cycle,” Rubenstein explores deep time through images of the smoldering volcanoes that make up Indonesia’s Ring of Fire, evoking thoughts of Earth, climate change and human co-evolution. Rubenstein was born in Detroit in 1948. She received a Master of Arts and Master of Fine Arts from University of New Mexico, Albuquerque. Since 2006, she has been a visiting associate professor at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and is an adjunct professor at Arizona State University’s School of Sustainability. From 1985 to 1990 she headed the photography program at San Francisco State University.
