Statement

Sabine Carlson

American, born 1960 in Cologne, Germany


"My paintings describe places at the intersection between doing too little and going too far" (Sabine Carlson, 2014)"

Sabine Carlson's paintings develop out of a process of connecting fragmented figurative imagery into fields of color in a way that allows for a long look at conflicted mobility. Her source of material is motion within landscape, in particular the unexpected combinations of detail that move in and out of view during walking at a slow pace.

In addition to the United States, Sabine Carlson has exhibited in the France, Germany, Italy, in The Czech Republic and in The United Arab Emirates. Her work is included in private, public and corporate collections in Germany, Italy, in the Netherlands, in the United Arab Emirates and in the United States.

Sabine Carlson has given numerous public lectures on her work and has taught painting in the Washington, DC metro area, in California and in Utah. Her work has been featured in New American Paintings, Vol 33, in Westbranch, Vol 50, (cover), in Gallery&Studio, (vol.7no.5, Ed McCormack: Sabine Carlson and the Enigma of Ordinary Things), in American Art Collector, 2009, 2010,2011; in Studio Visit, Vol 14 (Spring 2011) and in SELECT: WPA 2012 Art Auction and Gala, (p28, artists selected by Sarah Newman, PhD, Curator for Contemporary Art at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC.)
