Griebel’s handcrafted sculptures of hybrid bodies are driven by themes of psychological struggle, transformation and mortality. Based between Sundre, AB and Brooklyn, NY, his work is both informed by his prairie upbringing and contemporary urban encounters. Drawing from anthropomorphic landscapes of the Renaissance era, Griebel’s bodies fuse with their environment, using dark, playful humour to confront contemporary anxieties surrounding our relationship to shifting environments.

Jude Griebel was born in 1978 in Ottawa, Canada and lives and works between Sundre, AB, Canada and Brooklyn, NY, USA. He completed an MFA in Ceramics and Sculpture from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada in 2014, and has completed numerous residencies including MASS MoCA, North Adams, MA; the International Studio and Curatorial Program, Brooklyn, NY; HALLE 14 Center for Contemporary Art, Leipzig, Germany and the Kunstnarhuset Messen, Norway. His work was featured in Future Station: The 2015 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art at the Art Gallery of Alberta, and recent solo exhibitions include Esker Foundation, Calgary, AB; Redpath Museum, Montreal,QC and Museum Lytke, Leipzig, Germany. Griebel is a three-time recipient of the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation grant for emerging figurative artists.
