Use #mogrify and share what you bring to the cubic foot white box. Sabe exposes our perceptions of beauty as it evolves through western art.

Sabe Lewellyn visually reflects on our perceptions of beauty through the everyday and not-particularly-beautiful banal aspects of our lives. This exhibition will explore the preoccupation of beauty in western art as well as the dissolving of beauty as arts focus has shifted over the past 100 years. Sabe Lewellyn proposes new qualities for contemporary art to explore. In #transmigure, the artist invites the viewer to participate with the white box by documenting objects they bring and sharing them via social networks. Sabe Lewellyn works in the mediums of cast acrylic paint, recycled objects, electricity, tar, joint compound, chocolate, and copy paper.  He invites us to explore and participate in the creation, refinement and use of these materials.
