Sabine Abraham

Visual artist

Having trained as a graphic designer at the Kunstschule Alsterdamm in Hamburg and then continued her studies at Chelsea School of Art in London, Sabine spent several years working in London as a Graphic/Packaging Designer.

She now shares a studio in Frome and paints full time, exploring industrial scenes, the aesthetic appeal of discarded objects and the man-made destruction of and changes in the environment. Inspired by current affairs and what is happening in the world, she also interprets some of these events through her work, putting a personal spin on the selected subject matter. These themes are occasionally contrasted by more traditional genres like landscapes and floral studies, perhaps as a subconscious counter-balance to some of the starker images in her creations.  

Her style varies from realism to non-figurative and semi-abstract, depending on the subject matter; with her penchant for strong lines, geometry and bold shapes she works in oils, mainly with palette knives, and generally on a large scale.

Being passionate about colour, textures and textiles she designs and makes one-off funky hats and scarves and also creates hand painted silk scarves.

Over the past years she has exhibited at the SAC, Bruton Art Factory and the First View gallery at Stourhead with the Silton Art Group. She has also taken part in Frome Open Studios, The Cloth Road, Wylye Valley Arts Trail and Somerset Arts Week. Sabine had her first solo exhibition at the SAC in June/July 2019.
