Da Bosch alla Bibbia. Steve Sabella a Torino


By Federica Maria Giallombardo (Italian)

May 2018


Between the dark room and the innovative triumph of digital, the great pictorial tradition also finds its breath: ” If you look at the details of my works “, says the artist, ” you can see fragments of figurative compositions and literary traditions, like a certain creatural naturalism taken from Bosch and the Bible (in particular from Genesis). Some subjects remember Adam and Eve; others are waiting and hope for a sort of revenge or reflect on an enigma “. (translation)

Like floating worlds between painting and photography, their visual language is both historical and contemporary – a multicolored plastic raft floats with Nymphs in a paradisiacal landscape; a solitary traveler seems to wander on Mars or ancient Sparta. These collages reproduce our world in a familiar and alien way, containing many levels and innumerable connotations. Sabella leaves the viewer to travel through their still unseen landscapes. (translation)
