Sabrina Frey Fine Art, Mint Hill, NC
Sabrina Frey, grew up in the mountains of Colorado, so it makes sense that most of her work is centered on some aspect of nature and the four seasons.
As a former professor of interior architecture, she is highly influenced by classic design movements and designers such as Antoni Gaudi.
Sabrina’s bead work has developed over many years of study, research, and experimentation with different artistic mediums. Today she creates immersive and tactile mosaic paintings that can be experienced by all the senses. Her works are representational of life in that we are all made up of tiny particles. Going beyond the two-dimensional surface, she invites the viewer into her art to physically connect to it. Viewers are at first surprised that what they are seeing and touching is not a solid painting but a mosaic of thousands of glass beads that allow people to explore the texture, layers, and variety of color hues and tones.
Sabrina has developed various non-linear methods of laying the beads out with tweezers, then gluing them. By allowing the beads a non-traditional type of freedom her pieces have a sparkle that can’t be achieved when all the beads are lined up and organized.
