Sabrina Puppin

Sabrina Puppin’s work uses colors and shapes to test the limits of reality and our perception of reality. It is an investigation of the observation and the distorted perception she has of reality. The severe distortions and the abstract nature of the work create room for multiple interpretations of our observation of reality. The world as seen and known begins to dematerialize and the underlying spatial relationships disappear. Reality and perception being two sides of the same coin in the way they interweave and coexist; as perception arises uniquely for each individual who is observing part of reality. The artwork displays a strong and experimental nature in terms of the use of color and form, dematerializing the known object-based world. As a choreographer, Puppin organizes color’s movement within space. The space’s proportions as a stage frame the action of color in a very unique and unexpected way, amplifying or shrinking different aspects of the painting.
