Sibylle Laubscher (CH/UK, *1971) seeks to show the numinous, the spiritual and beauty in her work. Her (poetic-expressionistic) style invites you to dialogue with the work.
Laubscher is fascinated by colour (=light), form (=space), movement (=expression) and a sense of play. With these she creates pictures catching the movement of the beautiful and her aesthetic feeling.
Laubscher studied Textile Design and Design Management BSc(Hons) at The University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology. Moving to Vienna, Austria for work, she continued her art education studying with Zeger van Soest. As the first living artist Laubscher won the public commission for designing mugs for Schönbrunn Palace. Moving to Switzerland she completed a Fine Art course at a private art school established by artist and philosopher Martin Rabe, continuing her studies in art philosophy after the school's closure. She regularly explores new ideas via courses at the Royal Drawing School.
Laubscher has exhibited in group exhibitions in Austria (Vienna), Switzerland, Wales, Italy (Venice), USA (New York) and solo exhibitions in Austria and Switzerland. Her work is held in private collections around the world. Laubscher designs posters and stage sets for local am dram groups. She worked as a freelance writer and illustrator for a premier Swiss gardening. Laubscher painted murals in Kenya, Germany and Switzerland. Since 2018 she draws a social and political cartoon for a premium local newspaper.
Laubscher works from her atelier and exhibition space in Arisdorf, near Basel, Switzerland.
