Browsing through painter Brian Rubenacker’s work is like stepping into a storybook, all at once whimsical, slightly surreal, allegorical, humorous, and heartbreaking. Pugs with pipes, terriers in tiaras, beatnik Doxies with smirky sideways glances, and Boston terriers — oh, the Boston terriers! — thieving treats, stumbling zombie-like through a graveyard, serving afternoon tea to a Kong and a Cuz — all have their stories to tell in Rubenacker’s delightful paintings. And while his imaginative canine characters are surprising and unconventional, you get the sneaking feeling you’ve met these dogs before.
