Debra Jan Bibel
Since her youth, Bibel's art has had a proclivity toward bright solids and geometric morphologies. What is distinct about her art is the crisp precision, the definite form, the scientific execution. They appeal to the intellect and are of ideals. As art consists of different voices, hers is one of quiet elegant order, the architectural shape of Modernism and also of the Japanese and Korean monastery. They provide clarity of mind and tranquility even within a large array of shape and hue. Bibel has sought to question our perception of reality. Her paintings manifest her motto "as if" and signal this state of ambiguity and fundamental existential doubt, the mystery of deeper order, and the longing, the quest, for resolution.
