Rutstein’s work was featured in the new book Discursive Geometry & More, published by Goldenmark in Poland. Co-author Steven Baris writes about Rutstein’s painting, Cosmic Traveler, in his discussions of line and “behavior” of interactions:
“…As metaphoric vehicles of meaning-making, these colliding constellations of lines evoke for me not a single spatial continuum but multiple, interpenetrating spaces – not a plenum affording effortless passage but one of enormous density and structural complexity, one well beyond my capacity to navigate. It is hard to know where to enter or where to go (and if I were to go, would I actually get there?). Like with any artwork, my responses vary according to my state of mind, but generally speaking, I find that these complex geometric structures offer a perfect analog to the perplexing, networked world around me – manifold interlocking “spaces” for which I am woefully unequipped to grasp, much less to navigate…”
The book is translated in both English and Polish.
