Artist Statement:: (from his website http://ruben-miranda.com)
As I see it, the human figure embodies what life is all about, in more than the physical plane. It is the symbolic image of existence. Through the years, my morphic re-invention of the human figure has given meaning to the search for my own pictorial language.
My images are not completely figurative, but neither are they totally abstract. Geometry is always present, although far from the rigor of purists. Expression is subjected to some degree of discipline, but my drawing and brushstroke strays from any rigidness and remains fluid.
The machine is an important part of our technological age. I chose to incorporate forms that are hard-edged, some with evenly rounded shapes and others of them in metallic grays, fusing the mechanical and the organic, as an alternate mirror to the world around us today.
