San Francisco-based Sabina Sulé creates abstractions out of realistic drawings of people that she paints over with a transparent colour. Sulé continues to place layers of work over this, some representational, others not, until the original drawing has evolved into something completely different. Sometime the artist will scrape off parts of various layers to move even farther away from the representational. In the end, the viewer sees not the fragments, a composition veiled in texture and colour.
