Statement

VINCENT SABELLA

b. 1980 / Queens, NY

 

That Los Angeles based artist Vincent Sabella is not a product of art school—or formal training of any kind—speaks directly to the expansive and ambitious nature of his self-learned approach. Sabella’s mixed-media on canvas works possess the physicality of action painting, the iconography and attitude of pop or street art, and the penmanship of 18th century botanical illustration—all rendered with an effortless appropriation of varied techniques increasingly common among a select group of emerging artists today. Yet these are merely aesthetic or process descriptors; it’s the classical ambition of Sabella’s work that truly distinguishes it.

 

Sabella thinks and works in collections. As heavily influenced by fashion designers and cinema as he is by visual artists, Sabella begins each collection with a through-line—an evocative, fragmented, semi-autobiographic, and often mercurial semi-narrative—by which the works in a series are conceptually bound. And his resulting paintings—by turns ironic, disturbing, graphic, humorous, and beautiful—have caught the attention of the L.A. art world in recent months.

 

Sabella’s collection “Bear on a Hot Tin Roof”, a 29 piece series of paintings, will preview in part (April 2011) and will exhibit in full (June 2011) at The Happening Gallery in Marina Del Rey, California.
