Originally from Eugene, Oregon, Jorg Dubin attended the Art Institute of Southern California, settled in Laguna Beach, and has taught at the Laguna College of Art and Design. His work has been exhibited at numerous museums and galleries, including the Riverside Museum of Art, the Oceanside Museum of Art, and Laguna Art Museum. In 2015 he was a semifinalist in the BP Portrait Award, the prestigious annual portraiture competition held at the National Portrait Gallery in London. This painting of a beaten-up old studio chair, in which many models and portrait “sitters” have no doubt posed, itself has the feeling of a portrait. Those signs of age and wear and tear seem to tell the chair’s story.
