FORM vs THE ABYSS features work from Rose Masterpol and Joan Scheibel. Rose Masterpol is unshackled by the constrains that once held her in bondage. With this new work, she leaves her architectural renderings behind and pours the magic onto the canvas with unbounded passion, freedom, and conviction. The new paintings formulate moments occurring in nature. The viewer is taken on a journey of reckless abandonment through a dust of dandelions, a buttermilk sky, and into the depths of the abyss. Masterpol’s brilliant palette and movement is felt like the flowing of blood through one’s veins. The work is riveting, peaceful and soothing-simultaneously.
Joan Scheibel’s series of paintings culminated from a singular morning in Palmdale, California. Taking images of her own shadow on her Blackberry cell phone, Scheibel conveys a perfect moment in which her androgynous form exhibits strength as well as vulnerability. Scheibel was inspired to return to her creative work after visiting Peter Max’s studio, and uses a variety of mediums in her process.
