By Angela Gebhardt
Mixed Media on canvas framed with welded aluminum frame...
Delicate But Fiercely Strong
Her storied past is represented in each “auto-paint-ography,” though, only Angela Gebhardt knows whats hidden within her large-format, mixed-media paintings. Taking her time, she painstakingly moulds each like a sculpture. Building every letter, note, stripe or strip of paint, working and re-working until perfect. She puts a lot of thought into each creation and will even fight with the piece until it is an exact replica of what lives in her mind. Layered with images, numbers, words, there’s always something new for the viewer to discover and ponder.
Because her works are so intensely personal, it’s likely that an emotional bond will be forged between image and patron. Her works do fill a void — both on blank walls and in the artist’s heart. Gebhardt’s offerings pull together a space and add visual interest to any setting. Most of her pieces will have a pop of color that can punctuate any room. They are constructed with layer upon layer of acrylic, charcoal, blocks of wood and are very expressive with color, or sometimes the lack thereof. They are delicate, yet fiercely strong — much like Gebhardt herself.
