FOCUS: Analia Saban

Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

Los Angeles–based artist Analia Saban (b. 1980, Buenos Aires) takes traditional artistic media, such as paint, marble, and canvas, and pushes their limits in inventive ways that merge scientific experimentation with artmaking. In her Draped Marble works, Saban bends slabs of marble to the brink of destruction. Arced over walnut sawhorses, the marble appears fragile and pliable. Saban’s marble works were influenced by the billowing fabrics rendered in the same material by Renaissance sculptors, such as those in Michelangelo’s Pietà, which motivated Saban for their ability to transform “the hard into the flexible, the rough into the polished, the strong into the fragile.”
