Fury Rising

The Furies Trilogy

A closer look at the Fury paintings & why that last one was needed.

Wabi-sabi of the Ivory Tower

Wabi-sabi of the Ivory Tower

A deep review and interpretation of the painting “Wabi Sabi of the Ivory Tower”.

Sabina Nore

Surreal, Metaphorical, Large

Completed in May 2013, this was one of the most intense journeys towards a painting.

On Interpreting Art

Art interpretations, from the artist’s point of view.

The model and the painting (Vienna, July 2012)

Little Buddha

The model and the painting Vienna 2012.

The Golden Egg

A short story of a painting which didn’t want to get sold.

Zoom Out! by Sabina Nore

Zoom Out!

Some thoughts that, though unrelated, reminded me of my painting Zoom Out!

Alacritas

It survived!

This one was so close to dying, but it made it, against all odds. And I didn’t make it easy for it.

The Road Less Traveled

Drawing while traveling, drawing on my knees. I started this one in Italy, finished it in Spain.

Conjuring of Dreams

Conjuring of Dreams

Goals which are out of reach at the moment are sometimes referred to as dreams. Some take this word too literally.

Beneath the Ivory Tower

Beneath the Ivory Tower

A closer look at one of my larger paintings, incl. an interpretation.

Protector of Dreams -

Protector of Dreams

A drawing from a couple of years ago with a couple of dreamy, illuminating quotes…

Invisible Self-portrait

Sometimes I go on a journey, and sometimes I travel. What do I have to show for it? Many temporary invisible things.

Movie Recommendations: 101

There are movies which address things that are so important that one would hope them to be common knowledge, self-explanatory or a given, though that may not always be the case.

Diversity

Gazing into lush bushes, the variety of greens, wild individual shapes, all creating a harmonious grander picture, I was awakened from my entrancement with nature by a question.

A Thought

The Painting That Opened a Door

In a way, “A Thought” reminds me of The Fool, the tarot card, though maybe not quite as hopeful yet. The timing was fitting, as The Fool marks the beginning of a journey, and, in a weird, bizarre way, so did this painting.

Reaching

Reaching or Wherever I May Roam

I remember, “Ascension” was suggested as a title. Another title I had considered was “Wherever I may roam”.

Mama painting

Realms of Creation

There are different realms of creation, or different realms artists create from.

Painting detail

Outside of Time

Painting details, incl. a few seconds of a behind the curtain video.

Good Intentions

Good Intentions – Not Just a Sketch

“But it means well” could be the title for this quick little sketch I created years ago:

Rise – A Story of Madness

If I were to start talking about this painting, and the time in which I created it, you’d think me mad. You wouldn’t be entirely wrong. For about a month, I was completely mad.

Rise II – The Journey

For now, I’ll skip many things that happened in the months after I painted Rise, and I’ll fast-forward to a faraway place, and life on the island. A tiny island in the Indian Ocean.

If You Prefer Spirals

If You Prefer Spirals

​If you prefer spirals to circles…
Be mindful not to get trapped in other people’s loops of suffering.

Rorschach Test

Art as a Rorschach Test

Art doesn’t change. Whether a painting, or a book, a movie, or even a piece of music, once created, it is finished, and yet, that is when its journey begins.

Accomplishments

Accomplishments

Do you see all those little spheres, with all the individual accomplishments?

Solvar

Individually speaking, here is a Solvar. One of the Adumbrations, accompanied by a surreal text.

While I am still working on the ninth Adumbration, here is a selection of some of my older works, Visual Relics I.

Conflux

Conflux – The Finished Painting & Details

The finished painting with several large painting details.

Finished drawing by Sabina Nore

Processing the Journey

I have been drawing quite a lot on my last trip. Looking back at it, I was indubitably also processing some events that unfolded before my eyes.

How to have a Magical Conversation

A conversation between two people is a line. As beautiful, and as intimate as it can be, that’s not what this is about.

Painting detail

Gullibility

As ancient as it is, the mentioned project and its results are still not outdated, so it is an eternally important reminder.

Framed drawing by Sabina Nore

Surreal Beans

Another one of my drawings created during the recent trip. No thought whatsoever went into this one. Surrealist automatism.

Drawing by Sabina Nore

What Does This Mean?

Two drawings, some background music, and a book recommendation.

Let’s Not Flatter Ourselves

Have you ever wondered what I look like when I haven’t slept much, and I just woke up?
