Sabra Moon Elliot is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice engages with the relationships between, structure, color and larger cultural and social phenomenon.
Her geometric forms subvert the traditional linear structure of the grid, clashing against one another to create fragmented quilt like shapes. Working across sculpture, installation, paintings, and ceramics, she is inspired by the inherent structures, forms and colors found in nature as well as outsider American quilt making traditions that are left out of the canon. Her work attempts to bridge those gaps or at least ignite a dialogue around them by exploring notions of visibility. Always following her intuition, her process is driven by improvisation. At times she physically disrupts the rules she employs to make her work, deploying different strategies to interrupt the surface through various gestures from poking holes to deconstructing the material.
Sabra Moon Elliot (b. 1980, New York, NY) received a Bachelor of Science in film from New York University, and studied art history at Umbra Institute in Perugia, Italy.
