Biography

SABRINA PEROS IS AN EMERGING ARTIST IN PHOENIX, AZ. MS. PEROS BEGAN DRAWING AND PAINTING AT A YOUNG AGE, EVENTUALLY STUDYING AND GRADUATING FROM THE SCHOOL OF VISUAL ARTS (NEW YORK) WITH A BFA IN 2002. HER CURRENT PAINTINGS ARE ALL A VISUAL DESCRIPTION OF THE INSPIRATIONS SHE RECEIVES FROM HER SURROUNDINGS. HER SUBJECTS HAVE ALL SHARED A PIECE OF HER LIFE AND ENVIRONMENT AND THEY NATURALLY BECAME AN INSPIRATION IN HER IMAGERY. “WHAT I’M TRYING TO CAPTURE THROUGH COLOR AND CONTRAST IS THAT MOMENT OF CREATIVE MAGNETISM I FEEL WHEN IN THE PRESENCE OF THE SUBJECTS I PAINT, AND THE FASCINATION OF FREEZING THAT SNAPSHOT IN MY MIND THAT VISUALLY PORTRAYS THE RAW BEAUTY OF THEIR BEING. I FIND INSPIRATION IN IMAGES OF PEOPLE CAUGHT OFF GUARD IN A MOMENT OF HAPPINESS OR EXCITEMENT; SHOWING THEIR PUREST EMOTION BEFORE IT HAS HAD TIME TO BE SEEN AND INFLUENCED BY ENVIRONMENT.” THESE PIECES ARE PORTRAITS OF TIME FROZEN WITH A CAMERA LENS THAT SHE TRANSFORMS INTO A MORE THAN LIFE SIZE IMAGE ABSORBING YOU INSIDE THAT PERSON'S PUREST EMOTION. THE DOORS ARE THEN DISPLAYED ON STEEL WELDED STANDS, WHICH COMPLETE THE PIECE. THE STANDS WERE PURPOSELY MADE TO HOLD THE DOOR UPRIGHT, SO IT INVITES YOU TO FEEL AS IF YOU CAN WALK RIGHT THROUGH THE DOOR AND INTO THE IMAGE.
