Joan Scheibel’s series of paintings is primarily an exercise in self-expression. Ms. Scheibel’s 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.
Some paintings center around her own shadow and figure, while others unite with shapes and forms; all of which create images that are playful, personal and discerning. Her work shouts of global, soulful awakening, with a resolute determination of joyful energy.
“Gravitating to Pop and Modern Art, I am able to combine my paintings with graphic elements relating to 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.”
"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.”
Ms. Scheibel is currently living and exhibiting in Los Angeles and around the country. She has been the recipient for several of the “Artslant” showcase competions. She is currently exhibiting with Michael White Gallery, Sante Fe, NM. Her work has been shown and collected extensively.
