My paintings encourage a conversational experience by acknowledging that
everyone perceives the world differently. I depict elements of daily life, such as landscapes, common objects, and faces. Each painting employs a continuous line drawing technique to capture the flow of the drawing. Color is used to create depth and distort perception. The resulting two-dimensional abstract forms work together to depict a representational scene that allows for alternate interpretations. It is my intent that this abstraction encourage the individual’s imagination to continuously re-evaluate the subject of the painting, producing the understanding that things are not always as simple as they first appear.
My name is John Gibbs. I am a Vango artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. I am a multi-talented artist currently working in Greensboro, NC. My paintings have been exhibited at a number of galleries in the triad area. I began my artistic career working at an art foundry in Michigan before moving to Chicago to work in the design field. While living in Chicago he began exhibiting paintings at galleries and festivals. I cofounded Super Duper Art Co., a gallery in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood before moving to Lancaster, PA.
