Ann Pibal’s acrylic on aluminum paintings are at once brainy and open-ended, hard-edged and intimate. Without privileging one source over another, her work alludes to the robust history of abstract painting, architecture, and graphic design, as well as landscape and the sublime. She is primarily interested in painting as a way of thinking; in all its facets, her work implies a certain shifting, non-settling, ongoing process.
Her work has been exhibited widely at venues in the United States and Europe including MoMA PS1, New York, Sikkema Jenkins & Co., Feature Inc., Max Protetch Gallery, Meulensteen, Paula Cooper Gallery, ZieherSmith, in New York, Rhona Hoffman and The Suburban in Chicago, Slewe Gallery in Amsterdam, Petra Rinck Galerie in Düsseldorf, and dePury and Luxembourg in Zurich. She has received awards from the Tiffany Foundation, The Joan Mitchell Foundation, The New York Foundation for the Arts, The Pollock Krasner Foundation and most recently a Guggenheim Fellowship Award.
