Based in: London
Sabrina Brouwers is an Italian/German artist based in London. Sabrina graduated from Falmouth University in 2019 with a Bachelors in Fine Art and soon after completed her Post-graduate Diploma in Graphic Design at the University of Art London, in Chelsea.
Sabrina’s nomadic upbringing and curiosity for design principles have been great motivators to her practice. By extension, her work sparks a conversation between the act of journeying through our man-made landscape and our response to the complexity of our natural surroundings. Sabrina’s response to these themes results in colourless and non objective compositions where she uses elementary architectural forms to explore the psychological effects of simplicity.
Sabrina’s body of work is characterised by it’s non-objective and monochrome qualities. The abstract paintings are centralized around a mathematically plotted grid system in the base of each motif - representing the unnaturally ordered character of the urban landscape. Using the fluid shape of the circle Sabrina aims to challenge this order. The compositions are determined through a balance of intuition and strategy, by placing the circles inside the coordinate system. By challenging the rigid grid system through a complex layered process, a dialogue between emergence and disappearance is triggered, it is the barely visible grid format and recurring circle variable at the base of each composition which act as grounding elements to visual simplicity.
