Analia Saban’s work uses medium as the subject and experiments with traditional art categorization. Her paintings become sculptural and her sculptures are flattened. Her drawings are three-dimensional and materials typically associated with one medium are expanded into new forms. Saban uses technology and technique to dissect structure and explore the process of art-making. Originally from Argentina, Saban is currently based in Los Angeles.
For Artists on Art, Saban chose artwork by Sol LeWitt and Frederick Hammersley from LACMA's Prints & Drawings collection.
