The mystery of geometric certainty

From the start Albert Rubens developed his own language based on rigid mathematical and geo-metric systems in which the visual comes first. His work is based on mathematics, geometrically concrete and always executed in black and white. Initially he worked on the flat surface; in the second half of the 1960s the cube became his credo. With the application of points on the x-y-z axis, working drawings are created. By connecting a number of points and transferring them to canvas, without the guides, projections or coordinates, the work is created. With the experience, the systems arise spontaneously in the mind. Between the visual note and the final result, the final process takes place by incorporating this step by step into sketchbooks, which form the core of the work. The work is given a right to exist without the viewer having any knowledge of the underlying idea.
