Virtual webinar with Lydia Rubio

How can landscape painting serve as a source of refuge and self-reflection in today’s challenging world? During this virtual webinar, Cuban American artist Lydia Rubio will discuss how her work reinterprets the notion of “landscape,” taking inspiration from Frederic Church and members of the “Hudson River School”. Much like Church himself, Rubio’s paintings take inspiration from her travels as well as the landscape and ecology of the Hudson River and are deeply informed by her interest in philosophy, geometry, and Latin American culture.

Lydia Rubio is a multidisciplinary visual artist. Born in Cuba and raised in Puerto Rico, she is the third generation of women painters in her family. Her 43-year studio practice started in New York City. After years based in Miami and Bogota, she now lives in Hudson, New York. Her work consists of paintings, unique journals and large site-specific installations. Painting is at the core of her practice, primarily based on a conceptual system, not a fixed style.
