Hib Sabin: The Long Game
Hib Sabin (Non-Indigenous) returns with a body of work that considers ideas about age in a world where youth is lauded, applauded, and sought after with almost religious fervor. Now in his 80s, Sabin turns his critical eye and dexterous carving hand upon himself, with work that reflects upon the process of aging, the need for nostalgia and review of the past, and the fearlessness of the future. What are the opportunities that close to us when we make decisions, and what happens when the “Road Not Taken” is passed by? Where are the crux points in our lives, and are they the ones we think they are when faced with them? What is the job of an artist in his older years, and how does he both reflect the world and his own truths? The works in this exhibition discuss these themes using the characters Sabin has become famous for: Owl, Raven, Raptor, Human, Bear, and more.
For the first time we will be offering Sabin’s concept sketches for sale alongside the finished sculptural works. And a physical and digital catalog will be available for this landmark show.
