New works by Cobi Cockburn

Sabbia Gallery is pleased to present new works from Australian glass artist Cobi Cockburn.

This exhibition of new works explores the quiet synchronicity and beauty of unspoken energy.  

Highlighting the potential of colour and abstraction as stimulative devices to spur human emotion beyond the constraints of reality, I delve into the intertwined relationships of art, geometry and spirituality. Both present and absent, the underlying grid pattern represents a matrix of material and immaterial elements – a blending of the physical and spiritual that equalises feeling. There is no higher or lower ground. It’s energy is uniform and bound together, generating a vibration of matter –  a metaphor for human psychology and understanding. Through compositions of soft colours and layered lines, I explore this intricate construct of innate feelings and timeless motion that references a form of silent faith for the artist.
