The Corridor Gallery is pleased to announce the solo show Fluid Perceptions, featuring a series of abstract paintings by artist Sabrina Puppin. The exhibition will be on view till 27 February 2019, at the exhibition space at the Grand Hyatt, Doha.

Sabrina Puppin’s work is an abstract visual interpretation of reality in which she attempts to understand and appreciate abstraction as a phenomenon of perception and inclusion in reality, where each and every perception by anyone is a valid attempt to understand the truth. Perception based on abstract interpretation is an intrinsic part of reality, not a false image imposed upon it. While walking through her life, Sabrina Puppin is overwhelmed by visions in which the world as seen and known begins to dematerialise and the underlying spatial relationships disappear. Her abstract work depicts this intangible space creating its own reality.

In the contemporary art world full of new media and technology, Sabrina Puppin is pushing the boundaries of painting, most recently unveiling a series of vividly colored compositions of fluid silhouettes. Simultaneously playful and intuitional, organic and abstract, her work is grounded in a continuous investigation and experimentation of media and subject matter. The recent multiple solo and group exhibitions in New York and now in Doha confirm Sabrina Puppin’s rising position as a significant contemporary artist and one whose influence on painting will not be underestimated.
