Mid-century Abstract Cubist Still-Life Ladder Oil on Canvas Martin Lubner 1950s

About

Mid-century Cubist still-life with ladder, oil on canvas, Martin Lubner, circa 1959 Painting still life by Martin Lubner. Painting: 32.5" x 34.5" in a frame: 34" x 36". Born in the Bronx, Lubner moved to Los Angeles as a child and received his M.A. from UCLA in 1953. His work was shown in galleries internationally and has been included in the permanent collections of many museums including MOCA, LACMA and the Tate. Lubner dedicated his life to painting and teaching. He was on faculty at UCLA and The Royal College of Art and ran a private teaching studio for sixty-two years. Beloved by his students, Lubner's unique curriculum involved art historical lectures, technique and criticism. Lush with thick pigment, paintings by Martin Lubner are the dangling participles of the artist’s long career as an expressionist. The colors are odd and individualistic, the drawing deliberately de-skilled. The pigment crawls out towards and beyond the edges, as though the painter’s mind was reaching out and searching for forgotten memories. The art reflects the mind of an adult probing the depths of memory and finding childhood or its primal layers. Each work seems like a seascape where memories travel unmoored, as signified by the arbitrary objects that float on an unbroken ocean. What the painter remembers are the objects of his childhood - like paraphernalia on the “Paint Table,” the paintbrush in “Blur” - as well as the art of others, not to mentions the everyday experience of life in his own studio, as we see here. Dimensions: 34" W × 3" D × 36" H.
