Carole Gibb
Abstract Artist

The majority of my work is abstract in form. Abstract painting is a different kind of challenge and many times a feeling that cannot be fully understood or explained. Structure, color, shape, line and form are the essence of the painting. I love vibrant colors and try to convey a message or a vision that reaches out to the viewer’s eye. I paint in acrylic because it’s extremely versatile. Most of my work is paint on canvas or paper, but I also like to mix paint with water and an acrylic medium, then apply it with a tool or drip the paint on the canvas. Sometimes I will move the canvas around and let the colors drip before they dry. After the paint dries there are amazing color patterns and images. Then, I can accent the forms with more color and try to create dimension, texture and images as the paint moves in and out. I like the mystery of not knowing what you’re going to end up with. As I move forward with this process I would like to start adding images of cityscapes, still life, landscapes or figures. The majority of my work is abstract in form.

I have also painted portraits of animals for friends which I enjoy, having 2 cats of my own.

I have been painting for several years and have taken many classes, to name a few: The Art Institute of Chicago, Evanston Art Center, the Artists’ Workshop in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, and attended an Artist’s Way workshop in Taos, NM.

Art making is a never ending process. There is always another road to take, another process to try or a new idea to pursue. I enjoy the learning process and studying works of artists I admire.

I currently live in Evanston.
