Karen Eubel

Artist Statement

Karen Eubel's elegant, rhythmical abstractions have a paradoxical complexity. They are simultaneously minimal and mute, rich and resonant. Using a grid system and musical ideas, she orchestrates geometric motifs, repeating them in a multitude of ways to create intricate works of lyrical movement and harmonious color. These are works to live with, quiet and poetic, with an elusive imagery that changes with each viewing. She works exclusively on paper in diverse media, including watercolor, graphite and sumi ink. Her work has been widely exhibited and collected by museums, corporations and collectors in the US and Europe, including MOMA in New York, the IBM Corporation and the State of Ohio.

The painted works are created using a poichoir technique popular in Paris in the 20s and 30s to create editions of posters. The stencils are generated at random using grids of 8x8, 10x10, 12x12, etc. Each work uses only 1 or 2 motifs.
