Rubens Ghenov

The paintings of Brazilian artist Rubens Ghenov mine the unpublished work and meditative practice of the late Spaniard poet Angelico Morandá, a fictional poet whose influence on the painter now spans four years. The analects and practices of the poet and painter blend, an amalgam of fact and dream. Knowing the invented nature of the artists inspiration, the viewer is forced to ponder the interplay between fiction and reality; the esoteric, imagined poetic process manifested as abstraction. 


Ghenov has shown nationally in both solo and group exhibitions at Geoffrey Young Gallery, MA), TSA Brooklyn, New York, Woodmere Art Museum, PA, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. In 2013, he co-curated with Dona Nelson the 72nd Annual Juried Exhibition at the Woodmere Art Museum. Ghenov has been featured in Title Magazine, Bomb Magazine, and the Philadelphia Inquirer.  His work is included in many prominent collections, including the Museum of the Rhode Island School of Design. He is currently a professor of painting and drawing at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
