76.5" x 29"
About the artist:
Sabine is an abstract artist from Belgium (1964). She tries to let her work speak to those who like modern minimalist design. Her life as an artist began long before she actually started painting. As an autodidact she started out creating her first piece of an art in 2002.
She is mostly inspired by nature, with all its different whims, colours and surfaces. By painting layer after layer; she generates a balanced and unflustered composition. While her paintings might be quite untamed, the shades she uses are often subtle yet charismatic. If she had to choose one word to describe her art, she would have to say ‘wabi sabi’; a Japanese term for “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete”.
Spirituality or reality, a fantasy world and her freedom. When she is painting, she is in a meditative state of mind (which is called “a chi kung state of mind”). That is when she feels most balanced. She is in control of her energy, from which she can move slowly and transfer it into flowing movements. A combination of energetic movements, a coherence of strength and softness, with all kinds of materials such as acrylic and charcoal.
Her studio is her sanctuary. In her studio she often experiments in a playful and messy way with different tones, different consistencies and mixes of paint and materials. To obtain unique structures in her work, she has crafted her own painting brushes using a wide range of dried tropical leaves, branches and rope.
