Gia A Sabatini is a New York based multidisciplinary artist focused in Abstract painting. Her work is deeply inspired by the death of her sister, with whom she says her art is a conversation. Each stroke of paint is an act of healing, and brings a tangible emotional depth to her pieces. Death and loss are therefore natural themes across her portfolio, but she intends her pieces are subjective to the viewer’s emotional response.
Using mixed media materials from coffee grounds to tire shreds, as well as various paints, inks, resins and modeling paste, Sabatini's works feature an interplay of texture, color, and abstract expressions. She enjoys mixing materials and observing how their personalities interact on canvas. The juxtaposition of thick paints and materials with watery and soft materials is a narrative theme throughout her work. Both having their own personalities and when together they either marry or fight. The juxtaposition of the harsh thick acrylic with the soft thin watercolors and fluid light alcohol ink tell a story throughout my art.
The artist holds a degree in graphic design from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, but is creatively drawn to painting and mixed media work outside of her career in graphic design.
