Cobi Cockburn – Murmuration

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

‘Murmuration’ explores the silence in synchronicity and the beauty of unspoken energy.  

Highlighting the potential of colour and abstraction as stimulative devices to spur emotion beyond the constraints of reality, I delve into the intertwined relationships of art, geometry and spirituality. 

Both defined and balanced 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. Its energy is uniform and woven 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 being for the artist.
