The artworks from Jane Ebarle’s latest exhibit titled “Impressions” are a visual representation of invisible human relationships and connections. The artist is inspired by the ancient belief that an invisible thread connects all who are destined to meet. Ebarle visualizes this invisible connection of human relationships in her poignant acrylic paintings. She uses her signature “Hibla” imagery to build an abstract form in creating an imagined world representing surreal human-network structures.
For Jane Ebarle, the interconnected life, intuitive decisions, and routes we choose directly connect with the path of others. The acts of the past affect the present, and the decisions of the present affect the future. The future is a reflection of collective decisions made by all. The exhibition is a narrative of life’s ups and downs, light and darkness, life and demise. Ebarle’s art has developed into various forms due to the organic nature of human relationships in a network; and the final abstract form becomes the outer, physical reality of the invisible network housed in her inner artistic vision.
