Sabina Ott

Sabina Ott was known for her broad range of work-- from painting to installation to sculpture-- and her central role in the art world as teacher, administrator, and as the founder of the exhibition space Terrain, which invited artists to create installations and performances using the exterior of her Oak Park home.

“Whether large-scale mahogany panels of painstakingly crafted encaustic roses and dripping colorful landscapes, enormous voluminous installations of pastel coated forms or arresting geometric studies pierced with her gaze, Sabina Ott strives to bring the outside world into her work.” (Jeff Godard, Aspect/Ratio)
