Margie Schnibbe, Honey Bunny at Circus Gallery
by: Company Press Release
(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Circus Gallery is proud to present Margie Schnibbe’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles. The show consists of paintings, drawings and fabric works that are displayed in multiple sets and back drops for an adult movie written and directed by Schnibbe that will be shot in the gallery during the show.
Drawing and Paintings
Schnibbe makes abstract drawings, paintings and textile pieces that use bold colors and lines. Her work often incorporates text and uses the letters as a starting place to build abstract forms. In the mezzanine of the gallery will be displayed the Birthday Party, 112 drawings of the names of the addresses inducted into the Adult Video News Porn Star Hall of Fame. The drawings will then be used as the backdrop for a girl on girl S&M scene in her movie. Her work is often fueled by the id, the unconscious, an obsession with perversion, the preservation of innocence and the deification of desire.
Schnibbe’s visual art is used as the backdrops for her movies. She started her career as an artist and as she puts it ''adult films are a way to support and display my art.'' the strong abstractions and the hard lines of her drawings work well as dizzying set pieces for the action to take place in front of the camera.
Born in Yonkers, NY, Schnibbe received her MFA in Film/Video from the California Institute of the Arts and a BFA from Kansas City Art Institute. Her work has been shown nationally and internationally including Greece, Germany, Australia, and Canada. Her work has shown recently in Figures curated by William E. Jones at David Kordansky in Los Angeles, and her videos have screened recently at Lace and Cinema OT31 in Amsterdam.
