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 visual simplicity.
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. Sabrina's work explores tension 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 grid format and recurring circle variable at the base of each composition which act as grounding elements to each piece.
