Gibbs Rounsavall (b. 1975, Louisville) is a Louisville based geometric abstract painter who was featured in Louisville Magazine’s, “13 Artists You Need to Know Now” issue. In 2019 he was awarded the Artist in Residence position at the Galt House Hotel, the first Residency of its kind in the state of Kentucky and featured in USA Today. Rounsavall earned his BFA from Washington University in St. Louis and his MAT from the University of Louisville. His work can be found in public and private collections worldwide.
Roundsavall values perceptual experiences over symbolism and context. These experiences are generated by a combined love of the visual arts and music. Alone, a color is atonal. But within a composition, it can create steady rhythms, soaring harmonies and visual melodies. The artist’s affection for both disciplines coalesced into a minimalistic approach of mark making that promotes shifts in consciousness: between the known and unknown in visual perception.
