Devils in the Details

I’ve been pestering MB Maher to shake loose some more video work, and he keeps telling me the coffers are empty at the moment, that he’s hard at work on a new series on designers tentatively titled Field Studies. However, he agreed to make a trailer for AGO readers of a piece in this series on Reuben Munoz, who channels the salvage instincts of Derek Jarman and combines them with the theatricality of Tony Duquette, but with a shamanistic inflection that his uniquely his own.

So, without further ado, a glimpse of the work of the brujo in residence at Rancho Reubidoux.

    Hail MB Maher ! The soundtrack was desert-surfy, and just took me home.

  • Loved the music and all the details, but especially that devil planter–so hot!

    Kathy, you’ve got a great ear. Pet Sounds, Beach Boys.
    Pam, I like it too, and it’s an example in miniature of Reuben’s finely honed sense of succulent humor.

    I am so thankful that I have met Reuben. I’ve been so encouraged by all that meeting him has lead me to. To think that something I was doing just to amuse myself would open such a window for me. A great big thanks to Rueben and all the others that I have been reading about and learninng from!!!!

    Sooo glad I dropped by.
    Your description of Reuben is beyond noteworthy: Brilliantly spot-on!
    Just saw a link to this video on twitter, then on Rancho Reubidoux,
    and now I’ve landed at one of a favorite blogger’s blog.
