Lexis Rubenis is an abstract painter who says his biggest influences include Irish surrealist Francis Bacon. In November the 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco presented his show “Subconscious Imagery.” Rubenis says he aspires to the example Bacon set of balancing composition. For years Rubenis worked in art supply stores. What shows from that experience is a complex understanding of paint and pigment.
