Watercolors by Reuben Negron

I’ve been familiar with Reuben Negron’s work for a number of years, but I was completely taken when I recently saw a selection of watercolors from his two most recent solo exhibitions at Like the Spice Gallery in Williamsburg.

The works consist of stunning, hyper-realistic yet somehow dreamlike renderings of couples or individuals in what appear to be highly personal, intimate settings. They are often naked, sometimes having sex, sometimes alone, and the themes that Negron is dealing with all seem to be connected to deep intimacy, natural sexuality, psychological dynamics (even within the context of a lone individual), and revelation (as opposed to exhibitionism). But it’s the feelings that the works pull forth that carry a weight and universality, elevating the experience of the work and imbuing it with a kind of natural and universal human holiness.
