Artist Statement

Barbara Neibart has shown her oil and mixed media paintings in galleries throughout the northeastern U.S., and in Venice, Italy. Her monotypes and humorous illustrations have been commissioned by, among others, the Ford Foundation, the Wine Media Guild of NY and Bust Magazine.  

Redshift, a series of mixed media and oil paintings on wood, looks out into the universe, using imagery derived from earth, along with from theoretical physics and galaxy maps to discover connections between the universe’s vast mystery, and the all-too-real stuff of everyday life.   

On a trip to Venice, Neibart noticed that Venetian dogs seem to have personalities that are unique to that specific place. She began sketching and taking photographs, which lead to her series, The Dogs of Venice. The paintings are about the relationships between humans and dogs, dogs and their environment, artist and subject, emotional and physical space, and paint and surface (and the formal considerations therein).
