Artist Statement

Jude Griebel depicts psychological bodies in states of transformation. His work examines how the imagination negotiates abstract notions such as growth, change and mortality through metaphorical and experiential avenues. The drawings and papier-mache bodies that he creates become sites of fusion, in which physical anatomy is merged with symbolic prostheses and counterparts. When exhibited together, the works produce a complex narrative of transition and longing.

The images and forms that appear in Griebel's work belong to a visual vocabulary developed through research into historical and mythological beliefs surrounding the body and its relationship to the natural world, art historical references and autobiographical experience.
