EXODUS AND BACK

"It then seems as though Sabella’s In Transition hit the nail right on the head and snowballed into a mental ecstasy. In the same week that he shot images for In Transition, came Euphoria, “like an explosion!” Here, the images take on a chromosomal quality; the apparent veins and arteries clearly connect to one another and Sabella’s DNA is unmistakably lucid. He realised that there must be other “galaxies”, that his mental ascension couldn’t stop there – “I wanted to reach a supreme state of aesthetics” – and incidentally, a Beyond Euphoria began to take shape, the Arab Spring exploded into life."

EUPHORIA
     
   

juliet new

It is in this state of transition and investigation that the external reality penetrates violently and brings the artist back to his earthly roots. Sabella's introspective process melts and fuses with the recent events in the Arab world .... Agony and pain seem to be the price for Arabs to pay in order to enable them to start a process of liberation, awakening and rebirth. As an observer, there seems to be common traits between the artist’s condition and the Arab Revolution... The possibilities offered by the current historical events, and the reflection about himself and his constant transformation give birth to Sabella's last series Beyond Euphoria.
