Ghislaine Sabiti
BROOKLYN, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: My practice is primarily centered around mixed media. I make paintings, I weave my canvases with different medium and technique, oil painting, paper, drawing, textile design, thread and sewing that I used to build the canvas.I build bridge between communities and culture I have been influenced by the European artists of the 19th century and also by Vincent van Gogh, Gustav Klimt, Cezanne, Tamara Lempicka, Manet and Vermeer. I highlights the technical form used in both Congolese and European arts, which stress form and color. I used different textile techniques, produces relevant research regarding current social and cultural topics between the western world and Africa and that also can be illustrated through my art . My works develop projects between communities and collecting fractured narratives for social change through identity. My experiences of inter and cross-continental migrations developed her sensibility to cross-interculturalism and to a plurality of language which I explore in my interest to sew and paint different cultures, everyday people, live model drawing and landscapes with the assistance of my two favorite tools the sewing needles and energetic bold brushstrokes
