Bonhams Auction House in Dubai
Euphoria, 2010 will be auctioned as part of the international photographs sale on April 13. Lot 71 with text by Christa Paula.

Euphoria (2010) heralds a lifting of the state of 'mental exile', the realisation that identity is liquid and situational and that choice of context is an option. It is perhaps not surprising that it was created in physical exile. Montaged from hundreds of shots of trees, the resulting image of organic fluidity signifies cathartic relief, emanating a sense of the ecstatic and the sublime. Anthropomorphised shapes dance against the softly pattered background forming ever new aesthetic possibilities in the promise of limitless expansion.

Wall Street Journal
Painting the Middle East with too Broad of a Brush?
Richard Holledge

Steve Sabella's installation, "Settlement" (2010), has six Israelis opposite one Palestinian, all seven clad in underwear, facing each other with a neutral stare. Their eyes also meet the gaze of the viewer, making him a discomfited witness.
