Grand Hyatt hosts solo exhibition 'Fluid Perceptions' this month

By QLNews

The Corridor Gallery has announced the solo show Fluid Perceptions, featuring a series of abstract paintings by artist Sabrina Puppin. The exhibition will be on view till February 27th, 2019, at the exhibition space at the Grand Hyatt, Doha.

Sabrina Puppin’s work is an abstract visual interpretation of reality in which she attempts to understand and appreciate abstraction as a phenomenon of perception and inclusion in reality, where each and every perception by anyone is a valid attempt to understand the truth.

Perception based on abstract interpretation is an intrinsic part of reality, not a false image imposed upon it. While walking through her life, Sabrina Puppin is overwhelmed by visions in which the world as seen and known begins to dematerialize and the underlying spatial relationships disappear. Her abstract work depicts this intangible space creating its own reality.

In the contemporary art world full of new media and technology, Sabrina Puppin is pushing the boundaries of painting, most recently unveiling a series of vividly colored compositions of fluid silhouettes. Simultaneously playful and intuitional, organic and abstract, her work is grounded in a continuous investigation and experimentation of media and subject matter.

The recent multiple solo and group exhibitions in New York and now in Doha confirm Sabrina Puppin’s rising position as a significant contemporary artist and one whose influence on painting will not be underestimated.

Sabrina Puppin’s work has been exhibited internationally and is shown regularly in galleries and museums and represented in private and public collections. In contemporary with the Doha exhibition, Sabrina Puppin’s work is on display in the solo show Visual Meditations at the Chashama Gallery in New York, NY, USA until February 23, 2019.

Her residencies include: Expo 2015, Qatar Pavillion, Milan (2015), Italy, Turquoise Mountain Institute and Contemporary Center Afghan Art, Kabul, Afghanistan (2013 and 2014). Sabrina Puppin earned a MFA in Fine Arts at the School of Visual Arts, New York, NY, USA, a Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Study and a MA in Art History and Anthropology at Union Institute & University, Cincinnati, OH, USA, and a BA in Studio Practice and Art History at Norwich University, Montpelier, VT, USA.

Sabrina Puppin is a Qatar long-term resident and before deciding to fully commit to her art work, she has been the Founder and Director of Dar Al Founoun art school at Waqif Art Center and the Head of Art Education and Art Programmes department at the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) in Doha, Qatar.
