Rubert Soysa’s paintings reveal philosophical ideas of life, his paintings are subject to multiple interpretations and readings. At a closer look, they are myriad of shades and colours. From a broader perspective they are human figures that belong to no particular culture. At another level, they depict the harsh lives of workers, portraying their pangs. His abstracts are dominated by nameless human figures and their diverse moods and Rubert’s work shows influence from the classical abstract painting tradition.
