Hubert Scheibl’s paintings are poignantly balanced between intuition and careful consideration, between an impulsive painterly directness and a reflective distance. The artist likes to give his paintings expressive titles, often borrowed from the cinema, intentionally evoking, as a subtext, a variety of associations in the viewer. Yet the attempt to discover a theme usually comes to naught, or rather leads back to painting itself, to colour and the movement generated by the layers of paint.
