Bibel’s style or eye — a sense of core patterns of solid shapes and space as form ––  is found in her photography as well as her paintings.  Black and white images accentuate these forms, essentially manifesting their architecture.  Here are some examples.

Sometimes, depending on subject (such as butterfly wings and flowers), color is necessary. Though blacks and grays of the left photograph are now dark greens and little chromatically is changed significantly, the cascading falls become more alive, more powerful than the abstract black & white version. It is this version, enlarged, that hangs in the Bibel studio.
