I will be exhibiting three sculptures from my “Corporate Jets Series” at the
Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco Sept. 28th. – Oct. 20th. 2013
In homage to a silent 2013 Fleet Week in San Francisco, from October 5 through November 3, the Museum of Craft and Design will present an interior “flyby” of three Corporate Jets. These sentries will guide visitors into the Museum as they soar above our entry in stealthy silence.Artist Jorg Dubin has kept a close eye on the disintegration between the middle class and the very wealthy grow at alarming rates in America. The Corporate Jet series is Dubin’s playful and ironic look at the transcendence of influence or perhaps the merging of power of corporate America, politics and peoples’ innate desire for the good life. Using luxury brand imagery combined with symbols of America’s military dominance and power around the world, this series of metal sculptures touch on the subject of President Eisenhower’s warning about the military industrial complex, war profiteering and the general sense of greed at the top of the economic food chain.
I will be having some of my “Corporate Jet” sculptures in two new exhibitions.
The Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco and the Museum of Art and History in Lancaster.
Both will be showing groupings of my jet sculptures. Both exhibitions are in the fall of 2013.
This is a short film made in my studio talking about painting and a conversation about the King. Two of my favorite subjects.
