Salina Ellis presents Meridel Rubenstein

Rubenstein's work addresses the theme of place, home. How we are connected to it, culture, and how we are separated from it. These relationships are explored not only in photograph form but also in how she presents it.

She combines video stills, image transfers and prints of vellum. These compilations are exhibited in complex presentations. One included a pool of water with video shot onto the surface.

I think her images compliment the complexities of the themes she addresses quite well. The relationship of how culture is tied to land, people and how we as individuals may be separated from it, weather through displacement, natural disaster, divorce, or career is explored by overlapping disparate images, gallery placement, and display.
