Sabine Schober (born 1985 in Starnberg, Germany) is an abstract painter. She studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. She currently lives and works between Dresden and Munich. In her painting she deals with the conditions and possibilities of abstract painting. She examines various aspects, such as the application of paint, certain color tones, different materials, the pictorial space, gestures and markings.How did you get into art?

Even as a child, I saw painting and drawing as a way of expressing myself. Later, various encounters and circumstances encouraged me to take the artistic path.

How would you describe your style? What makes your work special?

I don't know if I have a particular style. But what my works have in common is that they result from my preoccupation with questions of abstract painting. I would describe my approach to painting as a combination of intuitive action on the one hand and a considered approach on the other. I think that my work is characterized by a particular sensitivity in terms of the handling of materials and the use of subtle nuances of colour. How do you go about developing your work?

My painting is created in the process. I approach a picture without a precise idea. I usually find something in the process that interests me and then develop it further. This can be a certain material, a color or a gesture, for example.Who or what influences you?

A piece of music, a painting by another artist (mainly from the field of abstract painting) or a walk in nature. Often, however, it is simply the painting process or the preparations for it that inspire me and lead to new ideas.

Make us curious. What are you planning to do next?

I like to plan until the next day and think about what I could try out, what materials I could work with or how I could continue painting a picture I've started. And in the long term, I'm planning an exhibition in Berlin this year together with another artist.Learn more about the artist:
