Inspired by design principles, Sabrina’s abstract study of our physical
surroundings results in non objective compositions where she uses
elementary architectural forms and materials reminiscent of our urban
landscape to explore visual perception and the psychological effects of
The abstract paintings are centralized around a mathematically plotted
grid system in the base of each motif - representing the unnaturally
ordered character of the urban landscape. Using the fluid shape of the
circle Sabrina aims to challenge this order.
Sabrina further explores tension and visual perception through
the introduction of juxtaposing materials reminiscent to industrial
architecture, such as aluminium, concrete and glass within her work.
The compositions are determined through a balance of intuition and strategy, by placing the circles inside the coordinate system. By challenging the rigid grid system through a complex layered process, a
dialogue between emergence and disappearance is triggered, it is the
barely visible grid format and recurring circle variable at the base of each
composition which act as grounding elements to each composition.
