ARTWORKS

In light of her own story, Sabrina has developed her own distinctive style which make her abstract portraits very recognizable and attractive for collectors. A strong use of contrasts and helmet-like hair in abstracted architectural and neo-surreal settings are the main distinctive features of Sabrina’s works. She invented her own way of painting faces which became one of the hallmarks of her style. Sabrina works with roller pens and acrylic on canvas, watercolour paper, cardboard
or wood.

CORONA

• Acrylic, Ballpoint Pen on Paper
• 13.4 W x 9.4 H x 0 in
• Executed April 2020

This artwork was created during Corona lockdown and addresses the helplessness everyone felt.

ELSA´S ARMY

• Acrylic, Ballpoint Pen on Paper
• 18.9 W x 13.4 H x 0 in

This work was created during Corona lockdown and shows how my style evolved.

SARAH

• Acrylic, Ballpoint Pen on Paper
• 13.4 W x 18.9 H x 0 in
• Executed April 2020

This artwork was created during Corona lockdown and was inspired by the incredible Sarah Laidlaw (see Instagram) and her Iso Editorial. I was inspired by her energy and talent and just had to paint her.

PHOENIX

• Acrylic, Ballpoint Pen on Paper
• 9.4 W x 13.4 H x 0 in
• Executed April 2020

This artwork was created during Corona lockdown. I drew a sketch while looking after two toddlers. When I came back from doing the washing, my daughter had painted all over it. I left it to dry, and then took a roller pen to finish it. Corona showed me how important women and children are in our society. Not at all. Football and beer were the first things that went back to normal. No one cared about childcare. I am still sitting at home taking care of kids and housework – instead of painting and working on my career.

PATIENCE

• Acrylic on Canvas
• 23.6 W x 31.5 H x 0.8 in
• Executed January 2020

“This piece has a long history for me. It was the second artwork I started working on after completing “Who Am I”, but I got stuck with it. I loved the expression in the figure’s face, but the rest of the painting I didn’t like at all. I made several approaches to finish it, but only made it worse. I never touched the face though. After almost 2 years of looking at it (it’s been hanging in our living room all that time so I had to stare at it every day), and after my style had evolved, I gave it another go, and I think the result is pretty good. You can still see traces of what’s underneath. Adding very thin layers just gives it that additional depth. I think Patience is the perfect name for it. Some things take time, and they only evolve when the time is right.” – Sabrina Meissner

DO OLD MEN

• Acrylic on Wood
• 19.7 W x 27.6 H x 1.2 in
• Executed January 2020

”I painted this piece with a lot of time on my hand, so I had a lot of time to work on every detail and feel every brushstroke. This work is part of a series of five works that form the sentence “Why the fuck do old men still rule the world”. I am aware that this is not a very subtle message, but we have been subtle for a long time now. It’s time for a change. Unfortunately I have not been able to finish the series because – funny coincidence – corona forced us to stay home, and since women and childcare were not on any political agenda, I (like most of my peers) was thrown back into the 1950s, with household and childcare dominating my everyday life. That’s exactly what I have been trying to transport with this series… ” – Sabrina Meissner

TULIP

• Acrylic, Ballpoint Pen on Paper

This artwork was created during Corona lockdown and looks at the investment side of a crisis. We seem to be blind for the past.

GOLD

• Acrylic, Ballpoint Pen on Paper
• 9.4 W x 13.4 H x 0 in
• Executed April 2020

This is one of the artworks created during Corona lockdown. It looks at the investment side of a crisis and wonders why we always make the same mistakes – unable to learn from history. This inability makes us incomplete.

WHERE TO FROM HERE

• Acrylic on Canvas
• 23.6 W x 31.5 H x 0.8 in
• Executed January 2019

“I have often encountered situations in my life, where I was blind for my next step. Although we have to take action in order to live the life we want to live, we may not always see the necessary next step. I have learned that patience helps. Be patient, if your vision is blurred you may make the wrong decision. Things will clear up, and you will know what your next step will be. This painting is trying to capture the chaos just before your vision becomes clear. And you will see the path that lies in front of you.” – Sabrina Meissner

ISN´T SHE LOVELY

• Acrylic on Canvas
• 23.6 W x 31.5 H x 0.8 in
• Executed March 2018

“Isn’t she lovely” isn’t necessarily a compliment. Sometimes all it means is that you’re fitting into someone else’s system. This painting is about trying to please when we should rather be ourselves. We should all put more energy into trying to figure out who we are as individuals, rather than trying to conform to a norm, no matter how strong that norm is. I guess this is a topic we are all facing, sometimes more, sometimes less and I felt the need to express this in this painting”. – Sabrina Meissner

WHAT´S GOING ON

• Acrylic on Canvas
• 23.6 W x 31.5 H x 0.8 in
• Executed February 2018

“While I started working on this piece, „What’s going on” by the 4 Non Blondes came up on the radio. The first time I heard this song I think I was about 13 – back then I thought the problems they are singing about don’t apply to me. I thought these issues are ”far away”, in another country, apply to another generation. How naïve was I. For me, this painting touches on strength, gentleness, energy and wanting to rebel against existing structures.” – Sabrina Meissner

WHO AM I

• Acrylic on Canvas
• 23.6 W x 31.5 H x 0.8 in
• Executed January 2018

“This work ”Who am I” is very special to me because it was the first work I really “painted”. I had this idea in my head of abstract portraits, placed in front of abstract architectural backgrounds. Right after I finished it I knew I was onto something. I am very proud that this ”Who am I” was selected and shown as part of a digital group show at Art Basel Miami in December 2019.” – Sabrina Meissner

DON´T STOP ME NOW

• Acrylic on Canvas
• 27.6 W x 39.4 H x 0.8 in
• Executed April 2018

”While I was putting on the finishing touches on this painting, the Queen song “Don’t stop me now” was on the radio, and I felt that this was the appropriate name for this work. I painted this work on a sunny day in our garden, and I felt so full of energy that I thought I could overcome any obstacle in life. I think the work absolutely shows this energy. I just had to give her a name that suits a queen.” – Sabrina Meissner

STILL

• Acrylic on Canvas
• 39.4 W x 39.4 H x 0.8 in
• Executed June 2018

“With this work I wanted to address inequality, injustice in our society – whether it is discrimination against women or the LGBTQ community, or any other form of anti-inclusion. Sometimes the blindness for these issues is even worse than the imbalance itself. Whether the blindness is willingly or unwillingly makes no difference. The issue is more the fact that we are so used to the existing structures and systems that we think the status quo is “fine” when in fact it is not.” – Sabrina Meissner

IVY´S LEAGUE

• Acrylic on Canvas
• 39.4 W x 39.4 H x 0.8 in
• Executed April 2018

”I think everyone of us has been in situations where we felt uncomfortable – because we “didn’t” belong to a certain group, whether it’s the cool kids at school, or a boys club, or a party you’re not invited to. I’ve learned that everyone has encountered situations like this, and sometimes it hurts. But I’ve also learned that we are never “alone”. Everyone of us has the strength to be kind, and attract like-minded people. It was always very important to me to have honest, kind people around me. This gave me strength in situations that were uncomfortable. I hope to transport this message with this painting.” – Sabrina Meissner

HAPPINESS IN PINK

• Acrylic on Canvas
• 31.5 W x 31.5 H x 0.8 in
• Executed May 2018

“The title of the work is obviously sarcastic. With this work I wanted to make a statement against the overload of basically everything that surrounds us. Whether it is the overload of incredibly happy influencers on social media, presenting the latest fashion trends that are supposed to make us happy, the overkill of products in supermarkets that makes it (at least for me) hard to decide, the amount of toys our children can play with, the media that tries to approach us via every single channel. As it turns out, the availability of basically anything, anywhere, anytime doesn’t make us happier.” – Sabrina Meissner
