About the Artist

After living 8 years in Vienna and 8 years in Frankfurt, Sabin moved to Denver in 2006. For almost 10 years she ran HINTERLAND in Denver, an experimental art space, where she curated and exhibited adventurous contemporary art.  As a designer, Sabin Aell’s work reaches back to an intense career as a multimedia designer.  Her history includes building online experiences for some of the world’s most recognized companies that included Mercedes-Benz, Daimler Chrysler and IBM.

On jewelry design, it is a game, to find the sweet spot between chaos and order, wild and tame, hard and soft. In that spot lies the powerful creative force and things begin falling into place – self organization. This is the approach she weaves into each piece to forge lustrous glamour with the lightness of the wind. Her style is extravagant, unexpected, playful and rejuvenating.

 Art of Adornment will be on display at Slo Curio throughout the month of April 2019.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Almost a prerequisite for her people, growing up in Japan, I was surrounded by those with distinguished sensibilities & deep reverence for aesthetic & functional beauty rooted in culture. In every aspect of my young life, I witnessed both old and new aesthetic, many of which was simply considered "custom" or "ritual." During the past 20 years, I have heavily been engaged with Japanese antiques, particularly textiles, folk arts and crafts. Each artifact I have encountered and collected possesses unique beauty, based on the choice of materials and execution to functionality.

In those everyday objects, I often find the most sincere and genuine beauty and I am choosing a similar path to create something intangible in my own life. Every element of our lives are superimposed and layered with other matters and elements. Endless variations of pigments, complex textures, and organic forms and shapes are all my intended forms of creative expression.
