Artist

Heidi Hybl
Carmel, California

Heidi Hybl’s abstract landscapes are inspired by the colors and shapes of California’s Central Coast. Living in Big Sur, the artist observes the ever-changing atmospheric conditions that arise when hills, canyons, and ocean meet. Heidi is passionate about being outdoors so as to absorb the visual, auditory, and tactile offerings of the coast. She then reduces these elements to an abstract experience on canvas in a color palette derived from her surroundings: sunsets and storms, fire and fog. Heidil’s artistic process consists of blending colors in seamless transition, where changes in color represent horizon lines or forms in the landscape. Oil paint is Heidi’s medium of choice. “I love its gooey, fluid texture that allows me to manipulate it on the surface of canvas or paper,” she says.

Comments About This Piece

This painting is an abstract landscape. When it was completed the arrangement of colors reminded me of Mark Rothko. His work is not a direct influence, but the use of colors in relation to each other is similar. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.

One-of-a-kind

A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
