Art in the Atrium: James Krabiel

Written by WITF Staff | Jun 20, 2016 8:53 AM

Check out the mixed media paintings, drawings and sculptures of James Krabiel. On display and open to the public now through July 31 as part of WITF's Art in in the Atrium exhibit.

Krabiel describes his paintings as works for the subconscious mind. Eluding immediate logical understanding, his art is intended to be felt deep within the soul. He tries to convey a sense of wonder and mystery in a space that is both open and flowing. Consciousness, personal spirituality and space-time are explored in abstracted environments. Personal iconography and abstract concepts are explored by using shapes and symbols. These patterns are often frenzied, yet methodical components that communicate balance and chaos. He strives to illustrate the vastness and intangibility of energy.

James was born in Louisiana in 1983, but spent most of his early life in Virginia Beach, VA.  After high school, James attended the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and graduated with a B.A. in Fine Art in 2005.  James lives in Carlisle where he maintains his studio, and works as the Sculpture Studio Technician in the Art Department at Dickinson College.

You can view Krabiel's work Monday through Friday from 9a-5p at the WITF Public Media Center.
