Opening Reception: March 5th, 6-8:30pm
On View Feb. 24 – April 3rd, 2020
Debbie Korbel’s work is what we need in today’s world. Not afraid to stand out or be heard, her work is witty, edgy, relevant, and challenging. Her power to captivate the viewer, make them smile, and feel like they belong resonates with her audience. It is why collectors, including Aerosmith’s Steve Tyler, buy her work. It is why she is showing at Art Palm Springs this weekend and in a two person show “Cavalcade of Dreams” at Riverside City College. Each sculpture is like a puzzle where she finds and fits each seemingly unrelated piece together in its most expressive form in order to create something new. And delightful.
“Her works exude a colorful music, a tumbling bundle of mini explosions. And it’s funny, the same words could be said when describing laughter, which just happens to be one of the elements fueling Debbie’s work.”
Jennifer Susan Jones, Beautiful Bizarre Oct, 2018
