Analia Saban’s sculptural paintings are the result of the artist’s interest in dissecting both the painting process and her works themselves. Saban describes her own method of working as both artistic and scientific—an approach that was inspired by her former instructor John Baldessari. She is best known for using laser cutters, silicone molds and acrylic, and erosive techniques. In her early works, Saban reduced the works of Modernists like Wassily Kandinsky, Joan Miró, and Henri Matisse into individual swatches of color, which she then cut out, copied, and rearranged. Since then, her painting practice has also included unraveling painted canvases and wrapping the threads into a single ball; shrink-wrapping oil-on-canvas works such that the paint moved beneath the plastic; and using photographic emulsion as a device for applying marks to painted surfaces.
