About

We are pleased to present the debut exhibition of newly represented artist Samuel de Saboia, titled Metaphysical Poetry, inviting audiences on a journey through the realms of philosophy and the intricacies of the human psyche. Each painting holds profound depth and resonance, drawing from both personal experiences and universal themes, weaving a narrative that is emotionally compelling and spiritually transcendent.

At its core, this exhibition is about reclaiming the spaces of the mind where pain once resided. It is a celebration of self-discovery and resilience, a journey towards finding what truly makes us worthy in the eyes of the divine. Each piece in Metaphysical Poetry is imbued with a sense of purpose and intentionality, reflecting de Saboia's commitment to conveying a message that transcends language and logic. His intricate compositions invite viewers to explore the depths of their consciousness and rediscover the power of introspection.

This is not merely a collection of artworks; it is a testament to the transformative power of art itself. It is "a celebration celebration…an ode to self," and a reaffirmation of the universal truths that bind us all together. Divided into six chapters – 'Vision,' 'Movement,' 'Chaos,' 'Texture,' 'Colour,' and 'Harmony' – "This exhibition is a spell, a ritual to rid ourselves of doubt and uncertainty," he writes. "Visions lead to movement, movement leads to chaos, chaos leads to texture, texture leads to colour, colour leads to harmony, harmony takes me home."

Samuel de Saboia (b. 1998, Brazil) is a mixed media artist and creative director known for works that address existential dichotomies such as life and death, pain and pleasure, and virtue and vice. The artist's vibrant, energetic paintings also relay fragments of his narrative as he explores themes including sexuality, migration, and displacement. De Saboia began painting and selling his work online at an early age. In 2019, Brazil’s FAMA Museum mounted de Saboia’s first solo museum exhibition. Many of de Saboia’s notable works feature the prominent outline of a central face or figure tangled amidst various other intricate patterns and shapes. The interconnected layers found throughout de Saboia’s work mimic the complex intersections that permeate and shape our society today.
