Hubert Scheibl is one of the most important and significant representatives of abstract-sensitive, gesture-intense painting. DOMINIK MERSCH GALLERY is very proud to announce ‘Riffs of the real world’, his first solo exhibition in Australia.
Scheibl’s work both on paper and canvas is difficult to categorize. Sublime, fathomless, overwhelming and sensual, are some of the adjectives used to describe the practice. The lush, sensuous and nervous elements of the artist’s paper works reveal the speed and immediacy of their graphical gesture. The timeless aspect of Hubert Scheibl’s paintings derive from his remarkable skill at capturing the inner light behind the picture plane which creates a sense of deep space; it is here that the viewer is drawn, into a matrix of gesture and color unwittingly. Scheibl provides this sense of emotional free fall as the painting defines its own sense of time and place.
This exhibition will give a fantastic overview of Scheibl’s oeuvre with paintings as well as works on paper from the past twelve years. Hubert Scheibl has been exhibiting extensively worldwide, e.g. at the Venice Biennale, the Bienal International se Sao Paulo as well as in Paris, Munich, Vienna, Helsinki and Barcelona to mention a few.
