Artist
Heidi Hybl Carmel, California

Artist Heidi Hybl starts each day listening to the birds sing in the canyon near her home in Big Sur. Then, she makes a cup of tea, reviews the previous day’s work, turns on her podcasts and starts. She paints in a small studio that is separate from her house, and works on several pieces at a time within what she would call “organized chaos.” She also takes time to tend her flowers, vegetables, chickens and goats. A former medical professional, Heidi worked for several years with laser machines, developing a knowledge and a fascination with the color spectrum and light. Living in Big Sur offers inspiration in the ever-changing atmospheric conditions that arise when hills, canyons, and ocean meet. 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.

    Artist Statement

    I am currently working on a series of paintings that explore the relationship of color and light. A former medical professional, I worked for several years with laser machines, developing a knowledge and a fascination with light and the color spectrum. These paintings are abstracted landscapes. Living along California's Big Sur Coast, I experience the continuously changing atmospheric conditions brought about by the interaction of the land mass and the Pacific Ocean. Sunsets, storms, and fog drifting through the canyons provide an ongoing display of subtle colors and tonal values. Colors are delicate or striking depending on the season, the climate, or the time of day. The colors in these paintings are chosen to convey a particular time, then are painted in a back and forth motion until they are blended seamlessly. I cite Mark Rothko as an early influence. In an effort to engage the viewer, I ascribe to Rothko's postulate: "A consummated relationship exists between the picture and the onlooker." Active participation of the viewer and the fleeting nature of time and our surroundings are desired goals of the work.
