After my recent visit to the Brandywine River Museum to study Andrew Wyeth’s original paintings, I made a substantial re-evaluation of my own work and processes. My increasing understanding of Wyeth’s work has helped me gain a better understanding of my own aims and direction as an artist. It has not been an easy path. I have taken advantage of the recent downtime to dig deeper using a series of exercises whereas I have broadened my subject matter towards a particular end. An integral part of achieving my artistic goals is the continued refinement of my specific style of digital painting, using a digital photograph as a canvas to reach emotional places no plain photograph ever could. The result, so far, can be seen in two new works now on display at Long Island Photo Gallery: ‘Patriot Days’ and ‘Towd Point – Study II’. Also on exhibit is ‘The Fledgling’. This print was included in the Islip Art Museums ‘Art After 50’ exhibit and you can now see the original at Long Island Photo Gallery.
An award-winning freelance artist based on Long Island, Jim Sabiston began his visual arts career as a painter, but with the advent of the digital camera, he left painting behind and committed himself to the art of photography. An experimenter by nature, Jim Sabiston is constantly exploring variations in subject, technique, and style. As such, his work does not lend itself to easy categorization. With a style rooted in minimalistic realism, his style and subjects are almost infinitely varied. Building on an original artistic foundation as a painter and an intimate study of photographic giants such as Stieglitz and Steichen, along with painters such as Andrew Wyeth and Winslow Homer, Jim Sabiston’s current work executes a marriage of photography and painting mediums into highly unique, print-oriented series sets that play to the strengths of both mediums. Recent work has been oriented towards East End and Long Island subjects in his growing ‘Island’ series and ‘Water Spirits’, a unique study of natural forms, structure, and light. Jim’s work has received awards from National Geographic Explorer magazine, the Adirondack Mountain Club, the Islip Arts Council, the Sayville Chamber of Commerce, the Westhampton Beach Chamber of Commerce, Gallery North, East End Arts, the Art League of Long Island, and the Huntington Arts Council. His work has been published in various books, magazines, and is part of many private collections.
Long Island Photo Gallery is always open to the general public and is committed to representing award-winning professional and emerging artists in photography.
