The landscape of his beloved Girona is what is reflected in throughout his paintings his themes, which he executes with lyrical obedience. His naturalistic representations know of the the temptations for the impressionism techniques: the exaltation of greens and blues, the presence of calm and shimmering water, trees, seasonal skies and fields …. These are gammets of submissive reality that Enric Rubió brings to life through his eyes and skilled art brush. As he is considered a veteran painter, he has deep technical knowledge and masters color. He is also especially gifted in knowing how to find the right angle, the most uplifting way to frame a subject, how to turn bring life into the canvas through a conjugation of tonalities, occasionally adding haziness to dawns and soft lights to sunsets.
Tradition and objectivity, converted into principles, fill his paintings with continuity and imagery. For this reason, one is able to sense the creative dynamics, whimsical touches, and a profound expression of pure affirmation in his work.
Mario Nicolas –Gal Art –Spain
Enric Rubió's color enriches his work, a color used with restraint and sensitivity, seeking and achieving a tonal unity, without stridency, of gratifying contemplation. He takes care of each and every one of the areas, the detail is important and sometimes becomes almost miniature.
S.Hilton (Gal Art - March April 2020)
Enric Rubió's work is extensive, open, he almost always prefers Plein air, the space, to enclosing himself in the studio. He leans towards the landscape, allowing the trees to see the forest. Clarity, descriptive cleanliness and perfection characterize him.
His painting is natural, fluid, spontaneous but also deep, careful, unhurried, impregnated with creative seriousness, dedicated to a well-established work.
Mario Nicolás (Gal Art - April 2020)
