Artist Barbara Kuebel

I’m inspired by people and their interaction as a group. I want to create impressions through fictive characters in a simplified and artificial environment and intend to give the viewer the reduced idea of a real and possible situation that is shaped by spontaneous emotion, aggression, affection, isolation and social density. The theme of a constructed and fooled reality as a result of actual dynamics is a reoccurring inspiration to me which I try to investigate in series of works that correspond with each other. The works I create are characterised by strong graphic elements resulting from pencil strokes which I see as the most important carrier of visual information. I’m is not specifically interested in the description of the figure rather than gesture as the most important quality to describe a physical scenery.
