Ships That Pass in the Night – Featuring New Works by Hib Sabin

A Solo Exhibit

This July, Stonington Gallery presents a powerful solo exhibition Ships that Pass in the Night by artist Hib Sabin. In this new body of original carved and painted juniper sculptures and accompanying studies on paper, Sabin explores our fears and hopes around climate change and the complexities of our American political climate.

Inspired by the poetry of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and the masterpiece, Moby Dick, by Herman Melville, Sabin casts light on the vast gap in human communication in these days of extreme individualism and individual freedoms sought out at the expense of the greater good. The realm of our subconscious and the great unknown are always looming and the light and dark natures of humanity remain ever at play.

“Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing, only a signal shown, and a distant voice in the darkness; so on the ocean of life, we pass and speak one another, only a look and a voice, then darkness again and silence.” -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
