Welcome to ABSTRACTSbySabina|
Abstract Artist: Sabina D'Antonio
Medium: Acrylic on Canvas, ACR/MIX on Canvas, Photography, and Illustrations
I am a self taught and fulltime abstract artist from the USA now working and living in Mornington, VIC, Australia.
As an artist and photographer, I specialize in abstract art because it allows more artistic freedom and creativity. Entwined with my manufacturing background, my inspiration comes from the raw beauty Mother Nature creates over time, rusted metals, peeling paint, anything weathered. From this passion, I combine unique textures and vibrant colors for a simple yet boldly stunning piece of abstract artwork. I do not recreate my work; each painting you see is an original. I feel art is a form of expression for not only the artist, but the collector as well. I am an Artist, not a machine. The art I create is left open to the individual’s interaction and hopefully inspiration.
"Sabina paints with energy, spontaneity, and emotion resulting in pieces that arouse and captivate the viewer. Her abstract paintings are expressions of her love for colour, textures, and numbers. Sabina has nurtured her independence and artistic freedom and paints spontaneously from within: expressing a feeling, a memory or an impression. Her abstract art is well-known and collected nationally and internationally. She has been painting her entire life and just recently selling professionally."
If i am not in my studio creating drawings or paintings, i am in the car driving around allowing anything and everything to capture my passion for art. I get a lot of inspiration for my paintings through my photography. Sometimes it is from what i captured, and others it is just from the journey of looking. I love walking around in decaying, abandoned, and dis-guarded places… because i find art, i find things that move me to create in the studio. The pattern peeling paint creates, the vibrant hue of orange from rust, the different shades of green which grow around a slow leak, the texture and look of brick under breaking away stucco has, and the amazing colors that have changed hands over time… not to mention the amazing teal blue waters and aray of colours from the local beach boxes i have come to love off the peninsula here in Mornington… all creating an inspiring palette for this artist.
I hope that you find my work every bit as enjoyable to look at, as i do in the journey of creating it.
Thank you for your interest and support of my artwork!
