Elizabeth Sabine at Birdland Art Gallery

May 31, 2017
Artwork by: Elizabeth Sabine ‘Abstract Seascape No. 253’ (top) and ‘Muted Skies No. 256’ and ‘257.’

The “New Paintings,” all landscapes by New Jersey artist Elizabeth Sabine now at the Birdland Gallery, are both serene and minimalist. The artist reduces her view of the sea and atmosphere to a horizon line with sky above and ocean below.

Her work is always inspired by nature. “I believe that art goes beyond aesthetics of an image and is really rooted in the feelings a piece of art invokes and the life it creates,” she states.

This is her second exhibition at Birdland Gallery, and she has created both large and small seascapes that can be arranged together, as she has done in the new gallery space located in Artifacts and Co., 100 Bay Ave. and Centre Street in Beach Haven.

The exhibition is personal for a couple of reasons. No. 1 is her obvious love of the sea and beach; second is her devotion to a friend who was tragically killed in an auto accident. Part of the proceeds from the sale of these special works will go to the surviving young family of Jason Ray Oswald.

Sabine studied art and design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. She states the Impressionists influence her work. Like them, she feels the moments of creation are influenced by the outside world, but also infused with the emotions of the artist.

Sabine’s “New Paintings” will be at Birdland through June 19. —P.J.
