Shari Weschler Rubeck (Sumo Bunni)
My work focuses on unveiling the multiple levels of human and humanness, nature and the milky mysteries of our many worlds. My goal is to create surrealistic visuals that push thought into new realm and transcend obvious assumption. As a species, we are evolving at an intriguingly rapid pace with limitless trajectory. I am passionately intrigued by quantum mechanics, string theory, the psyche, consciousness, theatre, animal nature, ritualistic behaviors, technology, communication and ancient history.
I continuously pull from several of the above inspirations to create works for the Ego and Circus Freak series. These paintings are more focused on our multi-faceted personalities and quirky narratives. The largest developing body, New Beginning, is deeply connected to our communications throughout history, those inside of our form, within the animal kingdom, from other dimensions and by the use of advanced technologies.
Illusion and truth travel in unison – as an artist, it is essential to reveal some of those intertwining moments. I hope to bring the viewer to a place of inquiry and personal dialogue that reaches way beyond the ego and the theatrical dance we must maintain on a daily basis.
