Annick Ibsen

Des Moines, IA, United States

The Perfectionist from Todd Steinberg Photography on Vimeo.

The traditional three graces theme is deconstructed by isolating each grace from one another both physically and in their fate and further interpreting the esthetics through cubism. Falling Out Grace is inspired by Maillol's The River.

Title: Jazz
Please note this is a diptych, so each painting has the following dimensions.
Dimensions: 3 feet H x 5 feet W x 1”D  (this is an artist canvas, deep depth, it doesn’t require framing because I painted the sides)
Medium: acrylic paint and mixed media
The paintings are not framed
Price for each: US$2,500.00. So total price for both is US5,000.00
The composition shows the piano, drums, and base on the left painting, with the microphone for the vocalist.
The right painting features the trumpets in the back, the trombones in the middle and the saxophones on the front.
This diptych was created using all the rules of the cubist French school: real newspaper bits, faux wood wallpaper, real music sheets.
The word “Drake” alludes to the Turner Jazz Center in Des Moines, Iowa, that inspired this composition.

About | Annick Ibsen

Annick Ibsen is a sculptor. She was born in Paris and moved to Des Moines a decade ago, prior to which she experienced a breadth of cultures across Asia and Africa. Her work embraces this diversity and is informed by cubism to shape emotions into 3D. The strong cubist influence, Picasso in particular, informs her connection between figurative and sculptural art forms. Her sculptures are built from slabs and assembled very much like a pattern to decompose space, depth and colors and create a fresh composition that conveys a geometry of emotions.

Artist Statement

Annick Ibsen is a sculptor in clay. She was born in Paris and moved to Des Moines a decade ago, prior to which she experienced a breadth of cultures living in Libya, Indonesia, Hong Kong, London and India. Her work embraces this diversity and draws on the symbolism of these cultures, mixed with a surrealist and very personal take on modern western relationships.

Her first paintings aimed to express the sculptural qualities of the human form. Convinced that emotions have shapes, it was only a matter of time before sculpture itself became central to her interest.

The strong cubist influence, Picasso in particular, informs her connection between figurative and sculptural art forms. Her sculptures are built from slabs and assembled very much like a pattern to decompose space, depth and colors  and create a fresh composition that conveys a geometry of emotions. The challenge in translating cubism is to give a 3D  perspective while retaining a harmonious asymmetry. Each sculpture reinvents proportions and expectations. Her current foray into monochromatic work contrasts with vibrant colorful compositions that harken back to the canvas. Composition, also called the secret geometry of artists, is ever more of the essence.
