Color and Light


These paintings are abstracted landscapes. I live in the coastal mountains along California's Big Sur Coast. I have a close relationship with the natural environment. I experience the continuously changing atmospheric conditions brought about by the interaction of the land mass and the Pacific Ocean. Colors are delicate or striking, depending on the season, the climate, or the time of day. A former medical professional, I worked with laser machines and became fascinated with light waves and the color spectrum. Stripes of uneven width are taped, then painted in a back and forth motion until the colors are blended seamlessly. I ask the viewer to complete the picture in his or her own mind.


Heidi Hybl has had many one-woman exhibitions, shown her work in group and juried exhibits, and received awards. She has taught art to children and adults, served on Boards of art organizations, and interviewed artists on Public Radio. She is currently displaying her paintings with a like-minded sculptor in a series of exhibits entitled Luminous Color.
