Sabra Moon Elliot

Sabra Moon Elliot (b. 1980, New York, NY) received a Bachelor of Science in film from New York University, and studied art history at Umbra Institute in Perugia, Italy. Growing up she explored different mediums of art such as painting and film and attended art classes at the National Academy of Design.  In her work, she explores the distinctive spaces that make up the greater concept of “space”: outer space, inner space, compositional space, spaces we occupy, and spaces of the mind. Like optical studies or experiments, her works search for a balance between these spaces. Titled after planets and stars, this series of ceramics contain checkerboards of repeated triangles. As puzzle pieces of a larger pattern, they are cut out, rotated, stacked and reattached to one another. Each sculpture pulsates with a life of its own, as pattern and sequence are interrupted. Sabra Moon Elliot lives and works in Bridgehampton, NY.

Sabra Moon Elliot is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice engages with the relationships between, structure, color and larger cultural and social phenomenon.

Her geometric forms subvert the traditional linear structure of the grid, clashing against one another to create fragmented quilt like shapes. Working across sculpture, installation, paintings, and ceramics, she is inspired by the inherent structures, forms and colors found in nature as well as outsider American quilt making traditions that are left out of the canon. Her work attempts to bridge those gaps or at least ignite a dialogue around them by exploring notions of visibility. Always following her intuition, her process is driven by improvisation. At times she physically disrupts the rules she employs to make her work, deploying different strategies to interrupt the surface through various gestures from poking holes to deconstructing the material.
