I love to work with my hands and create visually interesting objects. Contrasts attract me. I enjoy experimenting with the strange and unrelated materials I run into, fusing them together. It's an interesting resonance, the response and opposing elements that start to form an alliance. Such symbioses may irritate, provoke or be, simply beautiful. 

My art is a fervent play with concealed meaning and a language other than words. I feel like a player between the zones of the seen and the unseen. New and old techniques, technologies and the endless variety of materials thrills me. It is again the contrast, the use and handling of different textures and substances which draw me into a world where loose molecules are floating around, waiting to be touched, connected and forged into something else. Creation transfers me into a wild and vast undiscovered terrain. This is exactly were I want to be.

Sabin Aell, 2014


Sabin Aell is an international award-winning artist and multi media designer. Born and educated in Austria her resume includes international exhibits in Berlin, London, Seoul, Adelaide, Stockholm and Vienna. Her media as an artist ranges from photography to mixed media to film. 

After living 8 years in Vienna and 8 years in Frankfurt, Sabin moved to Denver in 2006. 2 years later she opened HINTERLAND, an art space, where she curates and exhibits adventurous contemporary art. 

As a designer, Sabin Aell’s work reaches back to an intense career as a multimedia designer. Her history includes building online experiences for some of the world’s most recognized companies. She is an expert in concept and strategy development for large intranet & internet applications. As Creative Director, Sabin Aell led creative development for clients that included Mercedes-Benz, Daimler Chrysler, IBM, and Dresdner Bank. 

During the last 10 years she has grown her experience into product, jewelry and interior design. In 2009 she founded her company Subsequently Now Productions. Her most recent project together with her husband’s company Custom by Rushton was the design and build of the expansion of City O’ City, a vegan restaurant in Denver. The design Included a line of custom made fiberoptic light sculptures. One of them a 10.5 foot long chandelier is a spectacular highlight and has been featured in various magazines. 

Sabin Aell’s work mirrors our desire to get closer to the edges and explore uncertainties. She finds herself in Friedrich Nietzsche’s quote: “One must have a chaos inside oneself to give birth to a dancing star.”
