Joan Scheibel's series of paintings is primarily an exercise in self-expression: some center around her own shadow and figure,others unite with shapes and forms. All of which create images that are playful, personal and discerning. Her work shouts of soulful awakening, with a resolute determination of joyful energy.
Observed from afar, the images emit a tempo...beating softly at first, then louder, then faster. Ms. Scheibel's imagery, use of color and form, drive one into a forward march, a re-born and re-inspired spirit, whose identity is unleashed and ready for action.
“Gravitating to Pop and Modern Art, I am able to combine my paintings with graphic elements. With strong influences from Peter Max, Andy Warhol and Keith Haring, my elongated figures have a strong Giacometti influence. Each painting reflects thought, movement, dreaming, contemplation and process, giving the viewer an opportunity to see the painting and make up their own story.”
Being fortunate to attend a high school with a strong Arts Program, I received a full scholarship and studied at the distinguished Otis/Parsons College of Art and Design. I also attended Platt College of Design receiving a Graphic Design degree. I have had my own Graphic Design Business for 17 years in which my portfolio includes entertainment industry projects, from artist branding to CD packaging and design, Real Estate Marketing, Logo Design and Corporate Branding.”
"I invite the viewer to peer inside of themselves fearlessly embracing the knowledge that, to provide profound depth, they must succumb to absolute vulnerability!"
