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

Kristine Schomaker is a new media and performance artist, painter and art historian living and working at the Brewery artist complex in Los Angeles. For over 14 years she has been working with various interdisciplinary art forms including online virtual worlds to explore identity and the hybridization of digital media with the physical world. Whether virtual or physical, the object-based work Kristine creates combines elements of color-based gestural abstraction, animation, pattern and design, neo-Baroque and Populence. Using installation, text, photography, mixed media, video and performance for her ongoing conceptual project My Life as an Avatar, she visualizes a narrative/dialogue with her virtual persona, Gracie Kendal. Kristine then documents her experiences on her blog. In 2012, exploring ideas of community, Kristine turned a local gallery into a modern day creation of Gertrude Stein’s salon of the 1920’s with a live mixed-reality dinner party merging the physical world with the online virtual world. Over the summer she also performed The Bald and the Beautiful in which she had her head shaved as a statement to challenge society’s standards of beauty. Currently, Kristine is working as an Artist-in-Residence through the Linden Endowment for the Arts creating an immersive virtual environment which she is planning to bring into the physical world via sculpture/public art work.
