Analia Saban brings her radical approach to the realm of the outdoor domestic scene, which becomes a backdrop for the artist’s storytelling. Engaging the history of painting and the possibility of art-making as an alchemical process, Saban continues her investigation of the line between painting and sculpture.
Presenting works on both floors of the gallery, Saban invites us into the metaphorical space of the backyard, in which the artist’s new works variously employ wood, marble, found household objects, pigments, and encaustic. In this new body of work, Saban continues to use the traditional elements of painting and sculpture to explore, expand and disrupt the properties of these media through alternative methods and processes.
