Artistic statement - Sabrina M


I’d like to give the viewer a glimpse of my world, a world sometimes far removed from the world as we know it. I attempt to portray fantasy, emotion and intense feelings in my work. I hope my images offer hope in a complex time colored by negativity. I try to convey my reality to the viewer and enchant them with an alternate reality. The end result is one thing but the creative process that precedes it is equally important to me.

Recurring themes of contradictory feelings like loneliness, freedom, anonymity, flight or death go together in a dialogue that I try to translate into positive images. These images sometimes arise spontaneously or I can)get inspired by things that I hear or read. 

When I have a picture in my head, I make a rough sketch and on the basis of that sketch I photograph all of the ingredients to arrive at this one image. Like a traditional sculptor, I model with modern technologies and applied software all of the preparatory work to help bring to life what I had in mind from the beginning. You could compare it to how a painter would use a color palette, brushes, paint and various other items gradually creating an image on the canvas.

During the creative process, I use whatever is useful to achieve my goal. It may involve seemingly small, trivial objects that most would throw away, to create my personal symbolism. This slow process of creating in combination with how I feel at the moment forms the end result which is usually a dramatic, intensified, surreal version of what I had in mind when I started.

The biggest compliment I can get is that the viewer creates his or her own story full of their own personal feelings.
