BIO: Ingrid Scheibler makes acrylic/mixed media paintings, as well as works on paper (watercolor and ink/printmaking). A former philosophy professor whose academic interests included 19th and 20th century European philosophy, aesthetics and feminist theory, Ingrid’s painting practice shares much with her former career, and both are centrally interested in the notion of openness to genuine dialogue. Ingrid has shown her work extensively in the Boston area, as well as Connecticut, New York and the Outer Cape. She has studios in Newton and Wellfleet, Ma.and is represented by AMZenhder Gallery in Wellfleet, MA.

ARTIST STATEMENT Ingrid Scheibler’s paintings are a pictorial conversation in real time. In genuine dialogue one has to be open to the presence of otherness, be it another person, tradition, history, or a work of art. Scheibler approaches the canvas in an improvisational dialogue she wants to explore but doesn’t know its end point. The physical space of the canvas contains the conversation as it is played out through marks, gestures, intention, accident, space, and materials. This process of discovery is alive with energy, and animated by both formal concerns and a psychological awareness of the facts of embodiment and embeddedness in a web of relationships—from the social/political to the familial.
