Critical Review

Possibly Invader’s most famous Rubikcube work, this piece was produced in 2005 for the first two shows where the artist introduced the art world to his Rubikcubism series, first Rubik Space at the Galerie Patricia Dorfmann in Paris, and then Rubikcubism at Six Space, Los Angeles.

Invader’s rendition of The Shining achieves unimaginable levels of complexity through the juxtaposition of hundreds of Rubik Cubes. Echoing his counterpart, Clockwork Orange, where similarly Invader pays a tribute to the master of horror movies Stanely Kubrick - hence the pun on the name of the print, Rubrik Kubrik - this print can also be seen as foreshadowing and anticipating Invader’s Bad Men series (see here Scream II), where similarly he portrays infamous villains drawn from iconic movies.
