Danish artist Charlotte Sabbagh currently lives in Rowayton, CT. She studied in New York at Parsons Fine Arts program, NYC Studio School and Silvermine CT.
Charlotte gets her inspiration from her native country Denmark where she spends each summer. She is drawn to the contrast of light and dark in the water, sky horizons, atmosphere and the natural beauty of the world we live in. These images are expressed in the colors, textures and mixed media used in each painting. Throughout her extensive travels she is enlightened by different cultures, perceptions and the love of life.
Her catalog of work consists of abstract painting using oils, acrylics and mixed media.
In recent years, her work has been shown in individual and group exhibitions including HB Home Greenwich CT, 711 Gallery Nyc, CCNS art show and Art to the Avenue CT. Fig Linen Westport, Olley Court Ridgefield, The Art Bazaar Nyc, designers and private clients in Europe and the US.
In commission work, Charlotte integrates the painting with a site specific approach. She looks at the space, materials, colors and the personal interaction between the artist and the client, the message and meaning, the materials and substance to all come together in one unique painting.
