Christine Hiebert’s works on paper and wall installations investigate the nature and language of line, and its habitation in space. She has focused on drawing since 1989. Her sense of the mark was encouraged by the drawing and painting of letterforms in school. Hiebert was raised in Switzerland and near Philadelphia. Her grandfather raised cattle in Nebraska; childhood experiences of the farm and of camping in the west engendered an affinity for stillness and for open spaces.
Hiebert’s drawings have been on view at The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Morgan Library and Museum, and The Drawing Center. She has exhibited widely in the United States and in Europe, and her work is in numerous museum and private collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Sarah-Ann and Werner H. Kramarsky Collection. Past installation sites for wall drawings in blue tape and other media include the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich, The Addison Gallery of American Art in Massachusetts, and The Davis Museum and Cultural Center at Wellesley College. She works with the Drawing Room Gallery in East Hampton, Gallery Joe in Philadelphia, and Margarete Roeder Gallery in New York and Cologne. Hiebert has lived and worked in Brooklyn, New York since 1988, traveling and working periodically in Europe and in the American west.
