What started off as surreal automatism, has developed into a series of drawings that survived the trash bin test.
(I know, I’ve been told that I shouldn’t throw away any of my drawings, but I don’t see the point in keeping anything I consider a doodle.)
I think of these as a connected series of drawings, a sort of journey.
There are several paintings I have completed in the last few months that I haven’t yet added to the gallery. The reason is ridiculous: labels.
I have a gallery of surreal artworks and one for pop art (or fun art), both of which need to be updated as well. The recent artworks however, don’t really fit in either gallery! I think that’s one of the reason why I like the phrase “art of imagination”, it always fits, but it is also a bit boring and general. So what to do?
I am still thinking about it… but here are my fantastic artworks. Not very surreal, not really pop art either…
They are all available for sale, as limited edition prints. If you are interested, please contact me!
I have finally created a video that shows the Furies trilogy in an illuminating way. Short of having them hang on your wall, this is probably the best way to truly see the paintings. If you have a good internet connection, make sure you switch the quality to “high definition”! I hope you enjoy the video, and the artworks…
My Youtube channel, The Art of Sabina, is young but highly promising so subscribe today to never miss a thing!
Big thanks to all of you who take the time to like the video, post a comment or send it to your friends! It means a lot, and… word of mouth is still the most humane and sweetest kind of promotion.

“I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.“, thus said Albert Einstein, and the same applies for art as well.
There seems to be some confusion regarding the terms surreal, surrealist and surrealistic. When to use which?
If you use surrealist as a noun, it is simply an artist who is a member of the surrealism movement. Surrealism being a style of art and literature developed principally in the 20th century, stressing the subconscious or non-rational significance of imagery arrived at by automatism or the exploitation of chance effects, unexpected juxtapositions, etc.(Definition source: dictionary)
If surrealist is used as an adjective, it still refers to the 20th century art movement.
Surrealistic means like an artwork of the surrealism movement (“having features typical or reminiscent of those depicted in surrealistic painting or drawing”), while surreal has a more general application: “having the disorienting, hallucinatory quality of a dream; unreal; fantastic”
Me: How do you like it?
Him: It’s not one of your better paintings. In fact, it may be the worst.
It began as a cloud exercise. I liked the clouds and kept going. The woman in the painting is drowning, or panicking at the very least, yet help is all around her. All she needs to do is look around instead of focusing on the drama of the situation she found herself in.
