Craig makes his home in Rose Bay, Nova Scotia during our warm season, and spends winters in Florida. "My work is figurative, abstract and magically mystical. It is a reflection of man's search for meaning, his relationship with himself and his environment, and the important people in his life. While lines, brush strokes and sensuous colour define the object, swirling lines expand beyond the figure, animal or landscape, suggesting movement, flux and change. I strive to keep the work fresh and alive, sometimes to a childlike feeling of abandon. Although I have worked steadily over many decades I continue to experience joy and great satisfaction when a difficult passage in a painting has been resolved successfully. I draw inspiration from the wondrous creatures in nature such as the warthog, lemurs, lynxes, otters and birds as well as bleached trees on a southern beach, the dark Florida rivers, and the craggy Nova Scotia coast." Rubadoux's paintings are not literal references to nature; they are about its essence. There is an emphasis on line, color, and spatial relationships. The work embodies the artist's personal conception of the world and his feelings and responses to that world. Rubadoux has participated in over 70 exhibitions, including solo shows at the Ringling Museum of Art, the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art, the Lowe Museum of Art, and the Cornell Fine Arts Museum. His artworks are included in many public and private collections including the Guggenheim Museum, New York; the High Museum of Art, Atlanta; the Ringling Museum of Art, Sarasota, the Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, and the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, Florida. This section will be under construction until we get nearer the opening date.
