Etsy Find: Leah Giberson

10 Sep

I am so in love with the work of Leah Giberson. Her paintings of suburbia are simple, clean, and uncluttered, and I love her use of light and shadow.

Her art statement found in her etsy shop provides a beautiful explanation of her work:

“My current body of work falls somewhere between the worlds of photography, painting and collage. I begin with photographs of seemingly ordinary and mundane scenes, which I then paint directly upon to distill and reveal the visually poignant moments that exist all around us, but are often overlooked.

“There is a quiet anxiety and loneliness in these images of isolated houses, empty chairs, abandoned pools and vacant streets.”

Here are a handful of my favorites. (I really had a hard time narrowing them down.)
