silvano rubino

(Venice, Italy 1952. He lives and works in Venice, Italy)

He studied painting and fresco at the Istituto d’Arte and at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Venice. Since 1984 he has also created set and costume design for theater and dance performances, achieving great scenic effect. His artistic activity includes large-format photography, video, and installations, always aiming at relating the artwork to the individual space, environment, and observer. His artistic research in glass consists in giving new shapes and dimensions to commonly used items. His glass works enhance the ambiguity of the material, that is glass but could be something else, and concentrates on forms. He actually gives his works a self-sufficient and autonomous life, exploiting the deceptive effects of the material. He has taught drawing and planning at the Abate Zanetti School of Glass in Murano. His works were presented in Glass in the World Today at the Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti in Venice in 2004 and In Perfect Scale at the Galleria Michela Rizzo in 2006.
