Tel Aviv, Israel
Rufina’s pieces speak the language of now while embracing classic glamour. Think Iggy Pop singing an Italian aria; or Audrey Hepburn dressed in Rick Owens.Striving for an urban surrounding, for lives lived between day and night, for a cool skin to lay against, they wrap the body and cast highlights, highlights that rock, and roll.Construction, deconstruction and reconstruction are the core of Rufina’s work.
Her pieces are put through a meticulous process of combining hard metals with softer materials until a perfect balance is reached, that magical point when everything comes together as one.The very specific colors that are so present in Rufina’s work are the same ones used for the likes of Lamborghini, Porsche and Alpha Romeo. Imported from Italy, the colors are being applied by hand, bit by bit, layer after layer, to produce chilling, riveting patterns.Rufina tells a story of a woman’s interactions with the world around her.Rufina was established in TLV circa 2009 by Ms. Rufina ErlichRead less
