About Barbara Kuebel

“My works are driven by spontaneous energy, nervousness and an attitude that “cannot wait”. My themes are inspired by the dynamics of crowd and group behaviours. I'm specifically interested how peoples' experiences within "social" situation such as a queue can be transmitted into drawing and graphics. My works are full of action and felt movement and want to tell stories of emotions without words.

I'm also a playful person who likes to dig into experiments and new directions for my work. Having said so, I like innovations and recently developed for my canvas paintings a way to combine printing effects with the crucial quality of gesture.

To add something on a more private note, I was born and raised in Austria and completed my artschool degrees at Academy of Fine Art, Vienna. I would describe myself as an international person, with life stages in Austria Switzerland, The Netherlands, Brazil and Alabama/ U.S. where I'm living now.
