Josephine Sacabo: Moments of Being and Structures of Reverie
Josephine Sacabo has been very busy, but honestly, I don’t know of a time that she hasn’t been consistently creating spectacular work and books. Her approach is mysterious, full of romance and memory, each effort bringing something unique and otherworldly to her art making. She has been a long time explorer of the world alternative and historical techniques, using multiple layers to create a single ethereal image. Josephine is skilled printmaker whose signature process, photogravure, “heightens the mystery and otherworldly romance of her images. Moments of Being continues her career-long artistic exploration of the intersections between body and soul, past and present, thought and feeling.”
Moments of Being
“What would such an inexperienced soul do without the solution that a body had been.” – Clarice Lispector
Snapshots of the life within.
Echoes of thought and feelings expressed in the only terms I really understand, which are those of light and shadow and the softening of edges.
The things expressed have already happened. Here they are remembered tenderly, in the repose of passion. – Josephine Sacabo
