A groundbreaking exhibition celebrating UK dance music and club culture
"Rusbatch is like a visual mash-up put through a TB-303, I’m liking these paintings a LOT!”
Norman Cook ‘Fatboy Slim’, March 2014
“David has done an amazing job of visually interpreting the sonic palettes of electronic dance music. He has produced stunning contemporary pieces with so much depth they also serve to reference the journey of dance music over the last 20 years."
Utah Saints, January 2014
RedHouse Originals is delighted to present ‘Lost & Found’ an exciting new exhibition by David Rusbatch.
Rusbatch: “I’m a huge fan of dance music; when done well, it can be the most euphoric and powerful music on the planet. Essentially I am striving to create a visual language for dance music through painting.”
The artist’s ambitions are only surpassed by the nature and scale of the striking paintings he has produced. The imagery relates directly to experiences at clubs and parties across the UK over the last fifteen years and his passion for the ‘art of music’ is immediately recognisable.
‘Lost & Found’ will feature twenty five original mixed media works on a range of substrates incorporating traditional canvasses with found objects including pallets, crates and fencing. There has been strong early interest from key players in the dance world as well as notable collectors of contemporary art, the common belief being that Rusbatch is producing the most important work of his career to date.
Rusbatch: “I hope ‘Lost & Found’ will elevate and celebrate dance music in its purest form, totally independent of any inherent negative associations. I believe the movement plays a pivotal part in UK society and for me has always been about inclusion, celebration and innovation. It brings people together like nothing else and this is what I am most keen to explore, in a positive way.”
The ‘Lost & Found’ collection has been over a year in the making and is set to be unveiled at RedHouse Originals with a launch party from 6 - 9pm Friday 4th April. The exhibition continues until 3rd May 2014.
