Sabina Puppo grew up amongst artists, and is herself the 7th generation of Italian artists in her family. Her art education started 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 paint in his projects.
Sabina’s work has an innocent quality that stands out for its simplicity. The fine lines she traces on the oil create a language of her own that collectors easily recognize and celebrate. There is a tranquility transmitted in how she paints rolling hills –combed with vineyards and olive groves, the seas with playful and undulating waves, the majestic trees with extensive roots, and the exquisite combination of colors, all details that transport the viewer to idyllic landscapes. Her art celebrates rural life in Uruguay, as well as in New England, and the Virginian Piedmont, where she resides. Her work has been exhibited in the United States, Europe, and Latin America.
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.”
