artist statement ~ steve scheibe


All that is visible is evidence of the invisible.

statement ~ of things seen and unseen

My intent is to visually amplify the voice of allegory revealed in natural forms. 

My physical art becomes a visible, tangible embodiment of things measureable, and also of the unseen real.


I create primarily in natural imagery using natural materials, including glass, dye-painted silk, painting, and printmaking. My recent work combines my various media. For example, I laminate dye-painted silk within glass.

And since the human mind does not willingly regard as common that which is enclosed (framed, fenced, boxed, wrapped, clothed...), I often place a frame around my discoveries - inviting others to also see, discover, and know.
