Sabina Puppo grew up amongst artists, and is herself the 7th generation of Italian artists in her family. Her art education started at an early age under the tutelage of her grandparents and her father. Sabina was an active collaborator in her dad’s art studio where as a child she helped him prime canvases, mix pigments, and draw and paint in his projects.
Her work stands out for its simplicity. The sgraffiato of the oil, rolling hills splashed with vineyards and olive groves, seas with playful waves, majestic trees with expansive roots, and an exquisite combination of colors that transport the viewer to idyllic settings. Her art celebrates life in rural and coastal Uruguay, as well as in New England, the Blue Ridge Mountains, and the Virginian Piedmont. Her work has been exhibited in the United States and in Uruguay, and her paintings are in private collections in every continent.
Recalling American artist Caleb Ives Bach’s words, “Sabina’s paintings transport the viewer far from the banality and bombast typical of the larger world. Sabina’s paintings, whimsical yet profound, celebrate the simple pleasures of working the land, living harmoniously with nature, and spending time with people dear to us: visual salve guaranteed to comfort even the most savaged soul.”
