Biography

[Idyllwild, CA ::: b. 1991]

RICHELLE GRIBBLE creates mixed media paintings and collages, prints, interactive installations, videos, drawings, computer games and sculptures. Her artwork is inspired by concepts of virality, biology, networks, group dynamics, and social trends that connect us all. She earned a BFA in Studio Arts from the Roski School of Art and Design with dual minors in Social Entrepreneurship and Marketing at the University of Southern California, in 2013. Gribble was the winner of the 2016 No Dead Artist International Juried Exhibition Grand Prize Award for a solo exhibition at Jonathan Ferrara Gallery with inclusion in the 2016 Art Market San Francisco art fair. Her work has been exhibited on an LED screen in Times Square, Christie's Salesroom in Rockefeller Center, Fisher Museum of Fine Arts, John Wayne Airport, and more. Her work has been acquired by Art & Trojan Traditions Collection and Kala Collection, and also flew to space aboard Blue Origin's space system. Gribble also recently presented her work in a TEDxTrousdale talk, titled, "What is our Role within a Networked Society?" 

STATEMENT |||
I explore  life  at  all  levels  of  living  systems  organisms,  social  systems,  and  ecosystems   to   examine  and  promote  our  interdependence.  At  each  scale,  under  close  scrutiny,  nodes  of  a   network  reveal  themselves  as  smaller  networks.  By  visually  revealing  structural  patterns  and   characteristics  between  cross­disciplinary  networks,  the  distinctions  between  our  social,   biological,  and  technological  lives  blur  into  one  living  entity,  our  planet.    My  work  has  evolved  from  making  comparisons  between  networks  (i.e.  molecular  systems,  social  networks,  neural   pathways,  freeways  systems,  etc.)  into  a  deep  analysis  of  an  important  question:  how  does   connectivity,  for  better  or  for  worse,  influence  our  lives  and  our  future?
