About

edition 1/5 BARBARA KUEBEL is a Daphne, AL-based artist who uses oil and pencil for her works on paper and on canvas. She was born and raised in Austria and earned two art degrees from the Academy of Fine Art in Vienna. Kuebel's works are inspired by groups and group dynamics. Coming from character drawing, the assemblage of independent characters in patterns gives her a special sort of freedom. She herself refrains from creating a singular story in her artwork though she encourages her viewers to create them. She particularly loves humor-driven ideas, specifically when it comes to thinking about group dynamics in relation to the individual, namely, herself. The artist says of her artwork... I'm driven by spontaneous energy, nervousness, and an attitude that "cannot wait." My themes are inspired by the dynamics of crowds, space, and group behavior. I'm specifically interested in peoples' experiences within "social" situations such as a queue or an elevator cluster. My figures are not inevitably human but display transformed fluid aspects of being or gender and often show unrelated interactions. These works also display an irrelevance of environment and background - Totale Künstlichkeit - nichts ist echt. I have been working in a reduced pictogram-like style for many years and see this way of expressing myself as the only way for self-control and focus on that which is relevant. For me, the technique of woodcut has a lot more in common with sculpturing rather than 2-dimensional work techniques. One word about color: black is "matter" rather than "color" in order to transport the monumental side of the figures - though I do use silver and red at times. To add something on a more private note: I was born and raised in Linz, Austria. 1994 + 1995 Academy of Fine Art Vienna, MMag. art. class of Anton Lehmden/ Painting + class of Herwig Zens/ Art Education. Life stages in Switzerland, The Netherlands, Brazil, and the United States. I live and work now in Daphne Alabama - US since 2018.
