Utilizing simple everyday subjects and shapes, the artwork by Barcelona-based German artist Sabine Finkenauer brings us an interplay of representative and abstract expression based on repetition. Sabine’s exquisite art pieces, created by hand using oil pastels, are now realized using different techniques and materials in some of the most iconic Marimekko home products.
Simple things are the overarching topic of Sabine Finkenauer’s art. The forms that appear in her work represent an artistic journey from the figurative to the abstract, while still evoking memories of familiar, everyday shapes. Losange is a heraldic symbol that appears on blazons and architectural ornaments on historical buildings that often catch the artist’s eye. This piece of art is a part of a series created using oil pastels on paper with a technique that involves both drawing and stamping: Sabine used an iron to transfer drawings from one piece of paper to another. In Spanish, losange denotes a diamond form.
