Artwork

Artist Sheila Grabarsky created this flowing abstract garden scene using a process of sanding down layers of paint as she worked. "I sanded this painting halfway through the process as the impasto became cumbersome," she explains. "The sanding revealed many intricate and exciting detailed passages that were inspiring to work on. I developed those areas by covering others and leaving some exposed. I then added lines of oil pastels to create cohesion."

Sheila Grabarsky

Bluffton, South Carolina

Sheila Grabarsky is known for her bold, gestural nature scenes. Her fluid paintings have been compared to those of Vasily Kandinsky, the Russian painter and art theorist referred to as the father of abstraction. And, like Kandinsky, the essence of inner beauty and the potency of the human spirit are key factors in her art. Sheila's art carries an air of spontaneity, however, the work develops in many layers and takes a long time to come together. "I search for evolving forms within the composition, look for 'eye flow' and use my color intuition," she explains. "This is the mystery I love about abstraction - always evolving and birthing itself." Sheila draws energy and inspiration from living near water, and says she rarely travels because she does not like to be away from painting. In her studio, she is usually accompanied by three animal friends and an eclectic playlist of Janis Joplin, blues, reggae and classical. In 2016, Sheila's art was featured in the movie American Pastoral, starring Ewan McGregor and Dakota Fanning.
