Jane Rubin is a Multidisciplinary Artist from a Multicultural Background.
In childhood — Jane Rubin was an advanced ballet dancer, pianist, and painter. Her father was a talented clarinetist. Her maternal grandmother was a talented painter. There are professional musicians and a famous composer on her mother’s side of the family — and there is athletic talent on both sides of the family.
Somehow — Jane got stuck with all the family talents at birth — Dance, Painting, and Music. However — Jane did not grow up wealthy — and she did not grow up in a big city. Jane grew up in York, Pennsylvania, a small Southern Pennsylvania town, where she attended rough public schools. At the same time — while Jane’s family was not wealthy — it was a priority for her open-minded parents to immerse their children in multi-cultural settings.
Jane grew up with an extended family that was both Jewish and Gentile, Caucasian and African American. Although she grew up in a small town, Jane’s family made it a top priority to constantly exposed her to multi-cultural art, music, and dance. Classical Ballet, Modern Dance, Indian Dance; Motown, Jazz, Classical and Folk Music, and later, Hard Rock. Post-Impressionist and Modernist Painting and Sculpture, Pre-Columbian Art, Early American, Pennsylvania German Portrait Paintings, Furniture, and Quilts………
All of these cultures and art forms surrounded and inspired Jane in her childhood and teens and formed her artistic identity. For example, Champion is early symbolic self-portrait, a large oil painting on canvas that represents feminine power — and it contains aesthetic elements of American Folk Art, Indian and Persian Miniature Painting, and the Central American textiles and objects that Jane’s artist-grandmother placed in their home in Jane’s childhood.
